Linen Love ūüíē

This was fun!  I totally enjoyed the embroidery on the front of this linen dress.  The patterns are free, there are 25 of them.  Here is the link  

The dress is for me. Our 20th Anniversary is just ahead and we have planned a trip to Colorado.  We will meet up with several of our family there.  But, will share one week alone moving along slowly to our meeting destination of  Valiceto Lake,  Colorado. 9B729596-986A-4638-B9F6-0DDC2E5C5314.jpeg


Started Sewing

SewHappybyChristie Etsy store is now open.   I am pretty excited about the changes here.  As now that I only work 2 days a week outside of our home here, I have more time to do one of the things I like best.  You can visit my shop or write to me here if you are interested in any of my sewing projects.  I can make the memory bears to order.  You would need to send me your precious saved clothing or quilt and I will be sewing for you a medium-sized bear app 20 inches. (Picture below) It will take me app. 2 weeks from receiving your fabric to your home.   The cost is 40.00 including shipping anywhere in the United States.

Thank you for stopping in!


IT’s a Home

Well here goes……

You can see the small center photo of what the room looked like before we completed the first two photos.  It has been a huge undertaking replacing windows, electrical, water lines, and adding drywall, doors, and lots of paint.  I am still painting.

The little bird decided to visit one day while I was working in the garden.  I have only canned tomatoes this year, Soup and Salsa. The corn and green beans are frozen.

The little chick plant I found on the ground at Walmart nursery.  I came home and planted it in a shell I picked up while on a cruise with my 9 daughters earlier this summer.

The new yet old sewing machine is a Norse and I am thrilled to own it, ¬† I will be starting my sewing business once again after 35 years. ¬†Christie’s Creations is now Sew Happy by Christie. ¬† It will be an Etsy¬†shop. ¬†But I hope to post here when items become available.

The last picture I will be sharing is the one where my Grandson is escorting my Granddaughters to VBS in our little town park.   I love, I mean love it here! Moving from the Farm to town and fixing up this little house has been awesome.   I sit here thanking the Lord for each moment and know that in my heart He has blessed me beyond measure.   I am 64 and can now sit here if I want and write, paint, cook, or sew.  I can spend more time in His WORD and if I want I can just watch the clothes dry on the clothes line.   I am off for now as the clothes are dry and I need to get them in before the rain starts to fall.

If you are the You I am writing too,  thank you for stopping by.

Have Blessed Day!
