For the Love of sewing.....

     I was raised around sewing and embroidery machines constantly running and was always fascinated by the intense and intricate work that my granny could do. I was in awe of how one woman could harness so much talent in two small hands. I would watch from afar at patterns being cut with extreme detail, measuring twice before cutting once, then hear the whir of the sewing machine and within what seemed like only minutes a beautiful dress, or robe was there in front of me. At the time I was only amused with "playing" with these machines and took great joy in being able to sit behind it and pretend to sew up an elegant dress, or table cloth. Of course I was never allowed to truly touch or use them, a caution I use today even with my own daughter.
     Looking back at the things I saw and had the privilege of knowing, not in my wildest dream did I ever have any intention of it becoming such a passion and area of work for myself. Now here I sit almost 20 years later and can not get enough of the sewing and embroidery world. There is still so much to see, so many techniques to learn and master. For now I enjoy bringing in a little extra income to our house and satisfying a craving for sewing and all things crafty. I have to say a special thank you to my granny, a woman of very many talents that range from sewing, painting to singing and so very many more. I can most definitely say I received these gifts from her, they are a special blessing God gave to her.

I have opened a small Etsy shop for anyone interested in any of the items I may showcase or make. Please take a look around and share with your friends and family. I try to keep my prices reasonable so that not only the kids look great, so that moms are happy to not have to spend a fortune.

She was not a one in a million kind of girl.... she was a once in a lifetime kind of woman!

I recently had the pleasure to go to our hometown to care for my husband's mawmaw who had just gone through surgery for cancer on her lungs. She was diagnosed last year with lung cancer and had already underwent one surgery and needed to undergo another to help remove more. She was a small 4'11" woman with the heart of gold and a sass that only a woman raised in the south could have! Small but Feisty was definitely an understatement for Mawmaw Peggy! The kind of woman no matter how badly she was hurting would look at you, smile, and ask how you were doing!? I don't believe I ever saw her frown or complain about anything she was going through. Her family is a mirror image of her kindness, generosity, love and most importantly a true example of her faith and the values she instilled into them. I am very blessed to have met her grandson and had the pleasure to marry in to such a remarkable family.
   Mawmaw didn't need a nurse but just someone to be there with h…

Thanks Brownie-Goose

I have to rave about this new pattern that a dear friend brought to me! It is by Brownie-Goose and is the Bay Dress/Top, Check out all of her cute patterns here at Brownie-Goose.
     I made up a dress for her daughter this evening and I can hardly wait to do more. I have a stash of fabric that has been waiting for that perfect dress and top. Our daughters will have these for just about every day of the week! I am itching to get started, come on summer (or just warmer weather). I think pairing these with a great pair of leggings would be ideal for springtime!






















This back is just incredible, I'm still swooning!


These two girls are such sweet friends and want to have the exact same clothes! Of course they are the best models! LOL I've got my work cut out for me!!!

The Beautiful Wife

I have had the privilege to be in a small group called The Beautiful Wife. We are studying this book "The Beautiful Wife" By Sandy Ralya. When starting this group I found out that when these groups are going on Sandy herself is praying over us. Not only our church, but her...the very author of her book is praying for us.  You can email her to let her know you are hosting this group and she encourages you through special messages and prayer. I just think this is an amazing way to connect with an author who is passionate about women becoming a more beautiful wife!
     Throughout the last 6 weeks we have read, studied and journaled topics from Self-Care to Inviting Romance into your marriage. It has been a very deep, emotional and eye opening 6 weeks for me. There are areas in my marriage that were quietly hidden that have been opened raw and healed through prayer, journaling and sharing with this amazing group of women that I have come to love and support. It is easy to…
