School day in Canada

We arrived in Canada a few days ago. So far we've been to a volleyball game, ice skating twice, shopping, carved pumpkins and visited with several friends. Today one of Grace's friends invited her to go to school. She was excited to go along. I can't wait to hear all about her day.
The picture shows Grace about to leave for school at 8:30. We're always surprised at how dark it is here in the mornings .

Living each moment

Lately several people we love have experienced loss. It hurts my heart deeply to watch them grieve and to grieve with them. At the same time it's a wake-up call for me. Life can be short. I need to love more, laugh more and enjoy my family and friends more. God has blessed me abundantly . I must slow down and cherish my blessings.

More birthday sewing

This gift for sweet Candice took me a while. Not because the sewing was difficult but because I couldn't decide which fabric to use! Lol! Finally I settled on her favorite college team-Auburn University . I made a basket for her like the one I made for Sandy along with handmade soaps. Then I tried, for the first time, to make a mug rug. I'm pretty pleased with how this one turned out . It really was fun to make.
Next on the list is sewing for my northern friends. Suggestions are appreciated. :)

Birthday sewing

October is the month when 2 of my dearest friends have their birthdays. Here's what I made for Sandy- a little basket with handmade soaps and a pin cushion/scrap bag to sit on her sewing table. One gift finished-one more to go.
