Prayers For Oklahoma!

Our hearts go out to all of those affected by the tornadoes that ravaged the heartland of our great country. I cannot count the tears that abrupty fall from my eyes as I watch the news coverage from Oklahome.

The adults, children, pets, homes….. Their whole lives just picked up, spun around and slammed back to earth lying in a pile of rubble that was once their lives.

In November of 2011 a tornado ripped through our small town and I have seen a small glimpse that in no way compares to the devastation the people of Oklahoma are experiencing now.

Sadness abounds as we think of you, Oklahoma!

My heart leaps for joy when I see a happy moment amongst all the havoc that is taking place.

Watch one of those happy moments by clicking the link below……

GOD answered both of this sweet lady’s prayers!

South Carolina is praying for you, Oklahoma! And I know that all of Team Fencepost are praying for you also.

May God bring you comfort and peace and see that all of your needs are met with abundance!

Happy Tuesday!



Mom’s Creations

I lost my Mother 6 years ago this month and some days I miss her so much.

She was a prim and proper lady. She had rules that she followed. Things like you only wear white between Memorial Day and Labor Day. After that they were taboo. We butted heads on that one often because I LOVED my white painter’s pants. Remember those? How many of you had white painter’s pants that you wore till they were threadbare?

I have told you before of how I taught her to crochet. It was not an easy task because she was left handed and I was right handed. But it gave her a lifetime to create.

And now I run across those pieces that she spent so many hours creating while she watched her “stories” (soap operas) as she called them.

Different colors. Although the white out numbers the other colors by a landslide.

Different shapes. Mostly granny square though.

Piles of them that she crocheted and never made anything with.

These are probably 15 years old because she made them before she lost her sight. Still in the plastic bags she packed them in and still in as good of condition as when she first made them.

I preferred to crochet with yarn. She preferred crochet thread.

Still I am left with all of these. And I want to do something with them, I just don’t know what.

I thought about a Christmas tree skirt, but most of them are square.

And most of them are 2 to 3 inches in diameter.

What would you do with them?

Team Fencepost, give me some ideas!

Happy Tuesday!


Here’s Your Chance

Hey Team Fencepost!

Here’s your chance…..

Well Mary over at Annie’s Goat Hill is having a contest to win a farm fresh bar of goat milk soap.
