This and That

I haven't blogged in a while. I always feel like nothing is interesting enough. But this is my blog and my life and if it's a little boring, so be it :)

Lenae chose a winner for her giveaway so head on over to her blog and see who won.

There isn't much to report on the garden front. We're still just waiting for it to get warm enough to transplant my seedlings into the garden. Another couple weeks and it should be safe.

Plus I need to re-pot these poor tomatoes. They are huge and probably completely root bound :(

Quite a bit of sewing going on too. I've been accepted as a craft vendor for the Mill Race Folk Festival this summer. My first craft show! I'm excited but also freaking out a little bit about how much I'll need to sew in the next 11 weeks or so.

Here is a purse for my mom. She chose the fabric (a home dec weight that frayed like crazy! Gah!). I didn't think that I'd like it. It is quite different that most of what I make, but once it was done I actually liked it. Plus it is SO my mom. And that's what matters :)

And a few others.

We've also had a sad week around here. Dave's Uncle Yves, who everyone loves, died in a freak motorcycle accident in his driveway on Friday. He was only 64 and one of the sweetest, nicest, friendliest, most giving men I know. We're still in shock. We're also dealing with some hard news about Dave's mom. It's been a difficult week and even though we don't understand these things we trust in our all knowing, loving, faithful and merciful Saviour and know that He is able to give us peace and joy, even in the midst of sorrow. We serve a wonderful God :)

Have a wonderful day everyone!

  1. First, I'm so sorry about your family's loss. It is inspiring to see that even when mourning someone being taken from your lives, you are holding tight to your faith.

    Congratulations on being accepted to the Folk Festival! After seeing peoples' reactions to your bags on the Internet, I imagine the response will be even more enthusiastic in person! :)

    And as for blogging about boring life, I've been there many times. I'll tell you what several of my blog-friends have told me (because it's so true!): Those of us who are reading will take what we can get! Any details you'll share -small, large, exhilarating, boring- are interesting! So blog away! Well, after you get all your sewing done :D
