January Days

It is hard to believe so much time has passed since my last post! Christmas and the New Year just flew by.

The Christmas season was blessed and busy. My mother and I spent many late evenings sewing pioneer and colonial dresses for little girls, as well as, nightgowns and aprons for ladies. The LORD abundantly blessed our sewing efforts through our website The Scarlet Thread. It is always so pleasant to imagine all the little girls opening up special packages Christmas morning that we had a part in sewing.

 With the beginning of a new year my mind is filled with new sewing inspirations. As I busily work on orders for our family business I have also been taking out some time to sew new items for my Etsy shop. Another fun project I hope to begin very soon is my wedding gown. : ) I have been gathering ideas from many websites, and I think I have a fairly good idea of the style.

January is a great month. There is a sort of calm after the storm of holiday rushing. It is a great time to relax, catch up and collect your thoughts. Lately I have enjoyed the peaceful routine of sewing with a cup of tea not too far away….

Today I admire the beautiful roses on my dresser- such a sweet reminder of my dear Adam’s love.

Yesterday afternoon I baked a double batch of oatmeal cookies, enough to share with family. Here is my favorite recipe! I used dates in place of the raisins.

"I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go;
    I will counsel you with my loving eye on you." Psalm 32:8
