Sew Crazy!! and a contest :)


It has been a dozy of a week!  We have lambs everywhere :)  There is one more ewe due for April and she shows all the signs of going any day now.  I am hoping that she goes soon so I can catch up on some sleep before the next round of ewes starts lambing :)


And in the midst of all the lambing I have had sick kids.   For almost two weeks straight they have been either coughing their heads off or puking :(   Finally they got over it and guess what?   Yep, mom and dad got it.

Anyway on to the point of today’s blog: sewing!    Since I got my new Designer Topaz machine I have been sewing up a storm.   This week I wanted to share some fabulous new (to me) patterns I found:

Keyka Lou Patterns

In Between Hello and Goodbye….

Five years is a long time, yet it isn’t nearly long enough.

My sister leaves for Memphis in 3 months.  I have know for quite sometime but tonight it is real.  For whatever reason the deadline looms…


and I cried the whole way home. 

Memphis isn’t all that far, about a days drive.   Tonight, however it feels like the other side of the world.   It is too far for quick visits, a dinner date.   Too far for “Can you watch my kids?” phone calls.  

Each goodbye feels more permanent.   Each time I leave the driveway brings me closer to the final time.

Isn’t it funny how blessing is overshadowed by hurt?    How quickly we are tempted to replace thankfulness with questioning…I am so willing to forget the blessing of 5 years, the miracle that brought her from our home state of Tennessee to Michigan, and instead to question a Sovereign loving God…Why?

She is called there.  I am called here.   She who is so much part of me is leaving.  

But as she goes there to serve with her surgeon husband, and while I stay to serve here to serve with mine, I know that He who calls is faithful.  And I choose between tears, in this time between hello and goodbye, to accept and be thankful.

…Assuredly I say to you, there is no one who has left house or brothers or sisters or father or mother or wife or children or lands for My sake and the gospels, who shall not receive a hundredfold now in this time…or in the age to come, eternal life.      Mark 10:29-30

What’s going on over there?

Alot.  And I am exhausted.   We had another lamb born, a 100% Cormo Ram lamb.  Sorry no picture yet but I will have one soon!


Jed tested for his yellow belt.  (Doesn’t he look pleased as punch?)


Twila had a birthday! (She is 11 now) We spent all day Saturday creating this monstrosity of a cake.   She loved every minute of it.

And I finally updated the etsy store!
