I'm Back!

So 1-1/2 years later, I am going to attempt to occasionally blog.  I feel like I have grown so much as a person, and can do this without burden, if nothing else, for my girls to reflect upon someday!

My bedroom furniture before and after, sooooo pleased at how this turned out!  And last night Rusty took the girls to the cabin, and I was able to read in bed for the first time in YEARS!! Life's simple pleasures sure are blessings!

She's 9 already!

Where have the years gone? We could not be more proud of our sweet Jurnee. She is amazing! Sophia loves her sister so much and Jurnee reciprocates. 3rd grade looks to be the best year yet!

Live to laugh and Laugh to live

New project just about finished, just needs a back, stuffing and edging, and I have 5 more in the works...
Hand stitching is my favorite pastime, along with Crocheting, reading and snuggling. But I do love putting a bunch of found treasures to a square of pieced fabric, and see what comes out of it.

A Little Time to Myself

Vacation Bible School week is always a busy one. This week the girls are having a great time, not only do they get to learn about Jesus through singing, dancing, crafts and a wonderful lady teaching the bible lesson, they get to go to Grandma & Grandpa's for lunch each day! I am working most days this week, but today I was home for a few hours alone. I made dinner, and was able to get this bracelet done. It is a gift. I think it turned out pretty good!
Now my photography not so good! I recently poured over the latest Artful Blogging and boy are my photos lacking... I better get on it.

Sewing up a storm here!

These pillows and others can be found on Etsy. My shop name is dawnkristine.
Hope you can find something you like, I will be adding lots over the next few months. I have/am busy. I have a great love for hand stitching and always seem to go back. My grandma taught me when I was about 5-6, and I will always keep this creative outlet in my life!

Blog Neglect

Went to an auction last weekend in the rain! First time I bid on stuff, and I had so much fun! Anyway, I had my eye on the bread box below, (in wonderful condition...btw) and I got the canisters as well! I didn't even have to bid very high.

Sorry about the blog neglect! I am going back to it. Life has been incredibly busy for me. I have been working more and of course the girls are getting busier too, which seems to also be my responsibility. I plan to sell again on Etsy, and keep my blog updated! So hold me to it! I have lots of crazy quilting going on here, as well as some crocheting. I will surely be back soon!

By the way the cute little guy pictured with my ladies is cousin Cedar. During a recent visit, Sophia mothered him so much! It was good to see her in a nurturing role, she is growing up fast now!
