Getting Great Mail
If I told you I love my mailman... well, you might just get the wrong idea. Besides, I don't think we actually have any men working at our local post office. Anyway, suffice it to say that getting the mail lately has been a lot of fun - always an adventure. Today, for instance, I received a great package from England with this sweet little card...
... and this beautiful embroidery done especially for me :) I won it from a blog called Poppy Makes back in December, and she offered to make it personal for me - with my favorite colors. My favorite color combo is turquoise and red, so she dressed the girl in those colors ... and she has dark hair, just like me ;) How cute is that?
Here's a closer view. I love it!!! I'm going to hang it above my sewing machine in our bedroom - it will go perfectly there.
I mentioned an art book that came today in the last post. This was also in today's mail - Design it Yourself Clothes: Patternmaking simplified. I ordered several books on Amazon with the birthday money my parents sent. I'm expecting two more sewing books and a couple other books. I was able to get some pretty good deals with the cash they sent. I'm wanting to learn to make clothes based on the clothes I already have in my closet. I have some experience and success with this already. Back when I was pregnant with the eight year old, I made a dress based on one I had from a store - and adjusted it to accommodate pregnancy and nursing. I want to expand that skill, so that's where I spent my birthday money.
I'm a born again believer in my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ the Son of God. I am a very happily married wife and a homeschooling mom of five of the greatest kids in the world. We live in a little mountain town in Wyoming, which we love. I enjoy reading and studying God's Word, homeschooling my treasures from Heaven, sewing and doing all sorts of crafts.

Cleaning and scrubbing can wait till tomorrow... For babies grow up, we've learned to our sorrow... So quiet down cobwebs, dust go to sleep... I'm rocking my baby and babies don't keep!!
