Check out This Book!

From the Back Cover
Sixteen-year-old Nathan Shepherd has a great life traveling where the careers of his father, an investigator, and mother, a renowned violinist, take him … until his parents are found murdered. Left with only a mirror and notes from his father’s last case, Nathan goes into hiding at the remote country home of Tony, his father’s college buddy, and Tony’s teenage daughter, Kelly. The mysterious mirror must be a clue to what happened to his parents, and when images appear in it—people and things that don’t exist—Nathan and Kelly painstakingly gather evidence. But the killers want the mirror too, and danger threatens the teens at every turn. As it becomes evident that Nathan’s father had stumbled upon dark forces at work in the world, several questions arise. Could it be that the mirror is a portal to a parallel world? Could this technology be used for evil purposes? And could his parents still be alive, trapped in another dimension? Nathan and Kelly struggle to solve the mystery before they too become victims. This chilling, hair-raising adventure is jam-packed with action in a fantastical world where nothing is as it seems, and even mirrors tell lies. -source from Amazon

Sergers and coffee grinds

My mom in law gave me her serger!!! I'm so excited! She has a button on her sewing machine that does this already, so she passed her serger along :)

I dyed some quilt strips today..not tea dying but coffee dying. All I had was loose grinds, so I dumped that in the pot to boil. It would probably have worked fine with regular fabric. I didn't think of the grinds getting caught in the batting *groan*

After they go in the dryer to set the color, I'm planning to wash them. Hopefully that will work. I'll keep you posted.

Sold a book today: http://www.etsy.com/view_transaction.php?transaction_id=10934733

"A sale a day keeps the creditors at bay." *smirk*

I also went to Frenchy's last night (local thrift store) and found a whole load of aprons to revamp!! Really nice ones.

I also found the perfect colored buttons for my kid's coat I'm making. Yup, I'm down to the buttons now. It turned out really well. I'll post pics when I'm done.

My youngest is feeling better today after 3 days of fever off and on. They're all at the kitchen table doing their school work now.

The weather certainly has been cold here. Looking forward to getting our propane tanks filled and turning on the heat.

After God's Own Heart

I've always viewed this phrase as being a person who pleases God.

Today I saw this phrase in a slightly different light. As chasing after God's heart...pursuing after the things that please God...after God Himself.

God likes to be pursued. Like a woman likes to be pursued by the one she loves. Lethargic and indifferent can really kill a relationship.

I guess that's be me of late in my relationship with You, God.


I guess this must be the lull before the Christmas rush :)

I made about 4 sales a days for the last 2-3 weeks, and this past week-maybe one a day.

Yikes! That's quite a drop in sales.

Oh well. It's God that gives the increase anyhow.

Been Stitching

I'm in the midst of sewing a kids coat size 4...from a pattern (I usually don't use patterns).

I learned how to understitch today!! (topstitching close to the seam)

Here's the pockets:

Love the fabric!!
