Pie Totes

Lately I have picked back up my hobby of sewing.

I don’t know why I ever stopped. One thing I’ve recently discovered about myself is that I am not truly happy unless I am creating something. Whether it be with fabric, yarn or some other medium, I know that I am my most content when I am creating.

Anybody else out there feel the same?

My most recent creations are these pie totes.

I haven’t really shopped for fabric in awhile.

Other than looking for something specific.

I had forgotten how many fabrics there are to choose from.

And matching fabrics is only part of the fun.

Once I pick out the fabrics, pay for them and get them home, I can hardly wait to get them washed and dried so I can get started sewing.

I begin cutting, pinning and sewing as soon as I can.

The suspense of the finished product keeps me motivated.

Now I just need to find a craft fair to visit and hopefully sell them to support my “habit”.

These make great gifts. Just add a pie plate or a plate for cookies or snacks. These also make fantastic hostess gifts. Just add a desert or snack and see your hostess’ face light up.

If you are interested in ordering one of these or have another color theme you’d like to see, just let me know.

I have friends sending me special orders.

I will post more images soon.

So what is a hobby that you have picked back and and suddenly realized how much you have missed it?

Happy Saturday!

Happy New Year!

Each year I toy with the idea of claiming a new year’s resolution. I consider and reconsider. And every year I decide against it.

Am I the only person who does this?

Thank you! I knew I wasn’t.

But this year? It’s different. I considered and reconsidered and decided I needed to make some changes.

The year 2013 was a tough year for me.

It’s never easy losing one of the family.

There are other things that have been going on behind the scenes that I won’t go into, but the thing that has been bringing me down over a matter of several years is the amount of negativity in my life.

Some of it I cannot change. Atleast not right at the moment. But it’s coming.

Other things I can change. Things that are and will be changing.

I cannot for the life of me understand why people are so negative. Is it because they think they are supposed to be that way? Or maybe they like it that way? Are they so miserable that they must make everyone around them just as miserable? Or maybe they are just stuck in the negativity that surrounds them?

Which is where I presently stand.

And starting in 2014 I am walking away from and removing as much of the negative things that grind at the core of my soul. My nature is to be happy, fun loving and spontaneous. I haven’t been that person for longer than I can remember.

So today January 1, 2014, my resolution is to rid myself of the negativity that makes me so unhappy before it begins to ruin me and my health. I am taking back my life and making it mine again.

Look out 2014, here I come!!!

Won’t you join me?

Happy New Year!

Eagles Wings Video

Back in 2008 I wrote about how God had heard my words.

And then again in 2008 I wrote about my experience of floating across the sky with a rainbow.

Awhile back that pilot sent me the link to this video of another’s experience with that same rainbow.

Notice while you watch the video…..in the background, the curve that shows the roundness of the earth. Part of it may be due to the type of lens on the camera, but it’s an amazing sight none the less.

Thank you Kincaid Productions for posting this on your channel!

I hope you enjoyed that video!

If you ever get the chance, don’t pass it up!

Happy Tuesday!
