Hi! Thanks for stopping by...

I love.... God, hubby, my posse of kids, wool, jelly beans, quilting, my Canon 50d, watermelon, fabric, Philadelphia Soft Pretzels, TastyCakes, my Bunco girls, laughing, my chickens, antique quilts, buttons, sewing, photography, freshly bathed babies, camping, the sound of snow falling at night, Fiestaware, Elm Creek Quilt books, and a whole lot more! I am a Pastor's wife,a homeschooling mom, a proud Navy mom, and am just downright busy!

Busy Hands are Good!

Busy hands are good!  Whether they are mine, yours, or someone elses, busy hands are good!  They create.  They move.  They produce.  They bless.  They clean.  They cook.  They pat babies backs.  They fix.

The picture above shows the product of busy hands painting!
Hands have been mixing paint, putting it on rollers and brushes, and painting my bedroom walls!
... and they say miracles don't happen anymore ;-)


Busy hands made this little chenille baby quilt pictured above.  They weren't my busy hands, I don't even know who's busy hands made this.  My busy, frugal shopping hands found it at the thrift store.  It's a handmade chenille baby quilt. It's about 42" x 36", and in perfect condition!  I'll put it on Etsy!
These 2 bags are called ZipIt bags.  I had the pattern earmarked in a magazine for a year or so.  My dear friend at http://www.froggybottomquilting.blogspot.com/ saw the pattern online the other day and mentioned it to me.   I thought, I have seen that pattern somewhere!
I found it and got my busy hands right to work.  The white tropical bag is made of outdoor fabric.  The red bag is oilcloth.  We are giving that to a little friend for her birthday... and will fill it with some little personal beauty items fit for a little girl!

So now these busy hands need to get moving....
