Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. If anyone speaks, they should do so as one who speaks the very words of God. If anyone serves, they should do so with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen. 1 Peter 4:10-11

Birdie's Nest

Oh my goodness, I didn't think these pics were too bad when I took them...I mean seriously, I spent all afternoon putting things away in here just to take these...

Yes, I do have TWO of those orange covered chairs.  Look at all the "stuff"...well, what can I say, "Creativity is messy?" Right after I finished these everyone in my family trickled by and commented, "Wow, you cleaned up in here."  Can't you just imagine what it looked like before???
I'm a visual person, if I can't see it, I don't remember I have it...

This is one of my favorite hang out spots, (or my hubby, Techno-Jock's).  I love this happy crocheted throw I made last year.  I'm so sorry to whoever posted this pattern, I would like to give you credit for reinteresting me in crochet...

I get distracted by things like this...isn't it cute? I found this at my Grandma's house recently and is is perfect for my camera.

And here is my trusty Singer.  It was a gift from my folks Christmas before last.  Before I had a Babylock that worked fabulous with all the bells and whistles I never used, it met with an accident on the concrete basement floor.  This Plain Jane workhorse serves me well.


  1. I remember that case of Nola's! I bet it's got lots and lots of miles logged on it!

    1. I love that you remember! What did she use it to tote???
