FCA Retreat

Last weekend I went to the FCA Coaches Retreat. (No, I am not a coach but Coach Di can get me to do anything. I am pretty sure if she asked me to jump off a cliff I would do it.) That is one lady that I would love to be like... her and my sister. I had a blast. It was the first time I had ever been to Hume. It was a great reunion of some old basketball teammates. We played some broomball, tubed, and of course learned alot. I miss those girls.

Christmas Flowers

For Christmas my grandma gave the grand daughters a flower pot. I planted them about 12 days ago and this is what it looks like now. Pretty Amazing!!

My Recent Projects

It has been awhile since I have been here. In the mean time I have completed a few sewing projects. I'm definitely not very good but at least it is fun to learn.

My first bag!! Katie taught me how to read a pattern.

I also sewed a pillow for Bryan

Who doesn't love a good hymn?!?!

Andrew put this cd in my stocking for Christmas morning. If you are someone who loves a good church hymn, then this is a must listen. Alan Jackson created this cd for his mom and I think also for me.

I feel so victorious right now. I just bid on and won a sewing machine on ebay. Katie, a new project each month here we come. Here she is... I need to think of a name for her. Any ideas???

My new kitchen

This is my favorite room in the house. My favorite thing is to eat breakfast, read the paper, and drink my coffee at the kitchen table.

With the help of my sister I sewed some curtains to help create a little personality.

Our New House

Andrew and I have been given the opportunity to move into my great-grandma's old house. I am in absolute bliss. There are so many stories in this house and I love hearing them.
