It was really amazing. Like warm fuzzy amazing. To just be captivated by the essence of family. It was pretty crazy. It just kinda made me realize that the dishes can wait. The laundry can wait.The vacuuming can wait. When family calls... You go. I didn't get ANYTHING done this weekend.i love that.
2. What was a couple of your favorite things you ate for the 4th of July?
Oh yeah. Def steak and potato salad, thanks to the Popsicle :)

Nom nom nom...

We had some at our church... The highlight was them falling over and mis-firing.

5. How hot was it where you were for the 4th?
100s... too hot for this girl.
Another highlight of the weekend
was the fact that my mother in law GAVE [and taught me how to thread] me a
Yes, she gave it to me. How amazing is that?
I've been praying about whether or not this whole thing was
for me or not.
I didn't have the money to invest in a sewing machine.
I didn't have the money to invest in a whole stock pile of fabrics. So I just didn't know if the Lord was telling me to drop this and quit wasting my time...
I was very confused.
I came home from my MIL's house on Sunday with a
new machine and stack at least 3.5 feet tall of her fabrics.
I got some neat patchwork Granny squares, some placemats, several belt pieces, all kinds of scrap ribbon, some felt. I'm tellin you folks, I racked up.
The Lord blessed me immensely through my mother in law :)
