Prayer Quote

“I pray because I can't help myself. I pray because I'm helpless. I pray because the need flows out of me all the time- waking and sleeping. It doesn't change God- it changes me.”
― C. S. Lewis


I believe in the sun even when it's not shining. I believe in love even when I don't feel it. And I believe in God even when He is silent. (quote found on the wall of a concentration camp)

The Sewing Machine

I have turned my sewing machine over to the girls to share. I will share with it too, if I ever get truly inspired.

Erika got busy first.... she instantly knew how to make a set of pillow cases for her room!

Now she needs a new quilt to match the new pillow cases.
Ummm, that material was for a skirt for ME! She is now on alert to ask before invading the material. :)

Anna, found a pair of old jeans and made herself this purse. I thought it was rather clever!

This is her waiting for her next turn....

Sarah, is working on stitching things and is taking things a little more slowly.

Here she is patiently waiting for her turn to practice. :)

I just thought of a great idea! Maybe I should have ERIKA make my skirt for me! :)
Happy Thought!

I am impressed...I do not sew well. I think I am to impatient but your girls look like they have picked it up fast.

Now, as pretty as that fabric is, I think it makes way better pillowcases than skirts. That's why it decided to attack Erika and convince her to turn it into pillow cases.

The purse is simply brilliant.
