Rainy Day!

I guess God not only knew that my garden needed a good rain shower or I needed a day to catch up on my sewing. I am desperately behind on my sewing, especially for myself. I have plum wore out some of my skirts and dresses. They aren't really even fit to wear around the farm. I have the material to sew some more, it is just finding the time to sit down and do it. Typically, when I have sewing in my daily plan, I get about 30 minutes of uninterrupted time. That makes for very slow progress for someone who is a very slow seamstress. I do love to sew however, it is a very peaceful occupation and sometimes does not require much concentration allowing me to think on other things. It has rained most of the night, which made it hard to get out of bed this morning. I love rainy mornings in the spring. The air is crisp and cool and everything looks so clean and fresh. The only drawback is that the laundry won't be hung on the line today. Otherwise it is a glorious morning and I am celebrating this glorious day that the Lord has made! I am definitely going to celebrate this rain today, it was getting pretty dry around here. Watering the garden was getting to be tough the more planting that got done. Thank you Lord for taking that chore off my hands today.

I hear you Kat, and we can water and water, but when the good Lord waters everything just seems to dance.

My skills sewing are limited to mending and basic quilting of pieces. Cortney and I are holding our neighbor to her offer to scholl us both in sewing clothes.

BTW, I love you quotes, te one in your header. My Mom is from VA and is also a true southern belle. Sometimes though her thoughts and comments toward black people can be embarassing.

Have a blessed day,

Thank you for the compliments. Sewing simple items of clothing is an easy task to learn. You will be sewing up a storm in no time. Don't let your mom embarrass you. Her comments come from another time and another generation. Never be ashamed of your heritage or your kin, God placed you all together for a reason!
