a few thoughts on faith, family, friends and adventures in stitching!

This would be the guys in our yard. Record cold and one day snowfall. I even have snow drifts in my enclosed screened in porch. No matter the cold, my cozy old sweater and I are staying in. I love snow days. You get guilt free reasons to do nothing and go nowhere. I like to bake. Not sure why but on snow days I like to bake. Of course there would have to be groceries in the house in order to do that. We didn't make our "OHMYGODWEHAVETOGETBREADANDMILKBEFOREITSNOWS!" run on Saturday. They could be giving it away for free and I wouldn't go out today. Cooooold. I think I will sit and stitch instead. Have lots of UFO to finish as well as some projects on my plate. Downloading photos today to share the Christmas sewing that was done. Stay warm faithful reader.
Before we go....did you watch?
I sure did and loved every moment. Don't you love that little sailor bubble on Master George? My favorite Violetism of last night was
Love the Dowager. And Nanny West! "Harumph" is all I have to say about her!
"Southern Matriarch" that is what my oldest daughter has dubbed me from time to time. What she really said is "You have not lived until you have been raised by a Southern Belle with strong religious principles." Some kids have it tough.
This Southern Matriarch has been married for 35 years and mother of four great kids, three sons in law and three of the most beautiful grand-babies on the planet. I believe in southern charm, manners and family connections. God has blessed my life.
My passions besides my family and faith are just about anything that involves a needle and thread. Have been sewing almost my whole life. I love heirloom sewing, smocking and hand embroidery. My #1 favorite project to do is a christening gown. There is no greater joy than to create something memorable for a baby's most important day.
