I simply want everything I do to be an act of worship to God. ********************EVERYTHING******************** like a spider's web, intricately woven, the threads of our lives are entwined, making us who we are, where we are, at this time in history.... here's a small record of one family's journey to love God

Friday Favourites #1

The Sound of Music is one of my favourite movies (I know, I know, give me a break, so it is!). I particularly love the song MY FAVOURITE THINGS because, even though I'm sure it was not the intention of the writer, it does remind me to be thankful for the many blessings in my life.

So beginneth *Friday Favourites*

This is our craft corner...all newly tidied. The desk was given to us by a neighbour, the sewing machine and wooden sewing box were my mil's, some of the baskets came back with us from Poland, others are from the Sally Army shop, the denim bag was my favourite skirt until it wore so thin it tore across the butt, the woolen bags and baskets I've knit and felted, other bags I've sewn, the button tin was a $1.50 thrift shop treasure....do you see the mending basket? (hint: it's on top of the sewing box) It's intentionally small, so it CANNOT get overwhelming!
I know my fat quarter stash *shouldn't* be sitting out getting dusty...but it's inspiring to see the beautiful fabrics. Small price to pay.

The pincushion is made of leftover fabrics from other projects, one of my first crazy quilt projects.

On the windowsill is a candle. While I sometimes wish for a minimalist house, I know I like little spots of beauty like this one. And I LOVE candles!

oh, so do you write first thing in the morning? I'm surprised to find today's entry already :-) Love that song too, and the musical too.

Actually I usually write when the kiddos go down for a nap about 1:30. Today I uploaded the piccies into a draft first thing this morning when I came to check bedrooms were tidy....just posted it about seven minutes ago!

Most days you'll find something just before 2pm.
