Crafting On :: Windfall

Dress Shears

The Colonial dress is finished!  Well, it needs a bonnet to match, but we are waiting on the fabric to come in at Wal-Mart.  Willow is beyond pleased about her new dress and I am quite relieved.  I took some pictures yesterday, but I'm hoping to take more.  Willow wants to go to a local church with a white picket fence, so I think we will try that today.  I really wanted to have a picture to share today (or yesterday!), but I think it will be worth the wait.

In other crafting news, I was given a bag of sewing notions over the weekend by Enid's eldest daughter.  She'd also given me a large amount of fabric, so I picked up the bag yesterday.  My goodness!  There sure was a lot inside.  I've been the recipient of numerous "notions" over the years--so much thread and bias tape and straight pins!  But this one, oh, it was just what I needed after a difficult day.  There were sewing machine needles (I am so bad to break them), elastic (always needed), infinited zippers and zipper feet(!) and jingle bells and so much more.  There were dress shears, best of all, and my own pair has been missing for years now.  They still have bits of fabric from the last thing she cut.

While I was picking up the bag, I spotted a food mill and asked to borrow it.  It was just given to me!  I needed one and was always borrowing Carrie's for apple sauce.  I came quite close to buying one this week, so it was perfect timing.  I love this place I live in, with its unending rolling mountains and wonderful generous people.

Oh, how nice to get all of those notions! Again, it's funny how the universe works for us... yesterday I was given my husband's granny's folding sewing box, with a few little notions left inside! :) The box is my real treasure, though. That's great about the food mill, too. I can't wait to see a picture of Willow's dress - I think the picket fence is a lovely idea. - Stacey

A Blessed Wilderness

It was just like being in heaven, being in there. In those days there was no road. The park was all a blessed wilderness. I have often thought what a wonderful people we would have been if we had wanted to keep it that way.
