My MSL came today and I didn't wait long to begin turning it's pages.

I was thinking this article came a month too late!  How aggravating!  Oh well, we survived it.  Then I saw the article they had on muffins and they were forgiven.
This little doll is in pieces, but is getting ready for Easter.  

Enjoy the day!

sweet poetry

This little poem was found in one of my vintage story books.  
The Little Birds Song

A little bird, with feathers brown, 

Sat singing on a tree;

The song was very soft and low, 

But sweet as it could be.

The people who were passing by

Looked up to see the bird

That made the sweetest melody

That they had ever heard.

But all the bright eyes looked in vain;

Birdie was very small,

And with his modest, dark-brown coat

He made no show at all.

“Why, Father,” asked a little girl, 

“Where can the birdie be?

If I could sing a song like that, 

I’d sit where folks could see.”

“I hope my little girl will learn

A lesson from the bird,

And try to do what good she can,

Not to be seen or heard.

“This birdie is content to sit

Unnoticed on the way,

And sweetly sing his Maker’s praise

From dawn to close of day.

“So live, my child, all through your life,

That, be it short or long

Though others may forget your looks 

They’ll not forget your song.

Sew sad, Sew happy!

   My sewing machine was dropped!  Luckily I married Mr. Fixit!  
It all started two nights ago when I realized it's been weeks since I sewed something!  I asked my husband to go get my machine from downstairs.  He went and then I heard the crash.  We found out that the cover was not completely on and it landed directly on his foot!  The Poor Man!  He can still walk on his foot, so we are grateful, but I felt so badly for him, that I will carry it up the stairs myself for a while.  I tried sewing with it and it just wasn't the same, we knew it needed fixing.
   Sooo...Last night, with a brusied foot, my sweet husband fixed my sewing machine and he now has a very happy wife!
My sewing machine has always been so good to me.  I got her from my parents after I sewed a lap quilt by hand!  I guess they knew then I was serious.  ;0)  
   I have some plans coming up for easter.  I am currently working on this.  I might even make a few of these dolls.

Fabic found

This fabric was found today at The Hobby Lobby.  I checked out the store for the first time and it did not disappoint me!  I was in a hurry and only looked at half of the store, the other half is for another day.

Rethink and Regroup

Moving changes lots of things.  We moved last weekend and I am amazed at the new life it gives me.  I try to stay open to change by doing slightly different things often.  I will change where I sit in a room or how I drive to a store to alter perspective.  
With my last move I told myself to remember, "Moving is always harder than you at first perceive".  It's true.  This move has been so good for me though.  I am inspired by the different angles of the walls and the colors in the home.  I am more comfortable than ever with who I am and that helps me to be more open to others.  I have enjoyed the opportunity this move has given me to evaluate, where I am and where I want to be.  Somehow with this new beginning, I feel empowered and capable of more.  I love that feeling.
