Bread Board and Rolling Pin

I've seen these all over the internet lately and thought I'd try my hand at making some. I decided to add some cross stitching to them because I love hand stitching and it's something relaxing to do at night while the house is quiet. I just listed them on Ebay in separate auctions.  I've got a few other spring items in the works and hope to have them completed soon.

Other than that, not much is new here - still waiting on spring to arrive!

This kid got an A+ for this paper Prayer and Pledge Allegiance

I was blog hopping today and read this at Crow's Creek Primitives


New Pledge of Allegiance (TOTALLY AWESOME)!

Since the Pledge of Allegiance and The Lord's Prayer are not allowed in most Public schools anymore

Because the word 'God' is mentioned..... A kid in Arizona wrote the attached NEW School prayer:

Now I sit me down in school

Where praying is against the rule

For this great nation under God

Finds mention of Him very odd.

If scripture now the class recites,

It violates the Bill of Rights.

And anytime my head I bow

Becomes a Federal matter now.

Our hair can be purple, orange or green,

That's no offense; it's a freedom scene..

The law is specific, the law is precise.

Prayers spoken aloud are a serious vice.

For praying in a public hall

Might offend someone with no faith at all..

In silence alone we must meditate,

God's name is prohibited by the state.

We're allowed to cuss and dress like freaks,

And pierce our noses, tongues and cheeks...

They've outlawed guns, but FIRST the Bible.

To quote the Good Book makes me liable.

We can elect a pregnant Senior Queen,

And the 'unwed daddy,' our Senior King.

It's 'inappropriate' to teach right from wrong,

We're taught that such 'judgments' do not belong..

We can get our condoms and birth controls,

Study witchcraft, vampires and totem poles..

But the Ten Commandments are not allowed,

No word of God must reach this crowd.

It's scary here I must confess,

When chaos reigns the school's a mess.

So, Lord, this silent plea I make:

Should I be shot; My soul please take!


If you aren't ashamed to do this, Please pass this on..

Jesus said, 'If you are ashamed of me, I will be ashamed of you before my Father.'

How to entertain a Toddler!

Bring out the keyboard! Miss Pearl had a blast with it last night. Every time she even hears music, she has to move or dance. Music is in her soul!

My first Prairie Bonnet

With a ton of help from my Mom who is an excellent seamstress, I finished my first Prairie Bonnet last night! They're harder to make than they look....LOL
 I made it in a nice pastel pink to bring a touch of Spring to any home. I hope to have more finished soon. I just listed it on Ebay.

What a weekend!

My oldest daughter has been in the hospital all weekend. I brought her to Emerge on Friday night. She had a C section when she had Evelyn about 6 weeks ago and developed an abscess right under her scar so they operated on her yesterday and she will be out tomorrow. It was the first time she had been operated on and put to sleep so she was pretty nervous about it. All went well and she's doing fine and up walking around now.  I took a picture of baby Evie the other day with the hat I made her. Now her and big sister Hailie have matching hats. Too cute! Look at those pudgy cheeks!

And here's a picture of the 3 of them.

Jester Hat and Tutorial

I saw a cute photo of a child wearing a hat like this the other day and I wanted to make one for Miss Pearl so I did a search on google and found this great tutorial for one here. I changed it up a bit when making it and Miss Pearl just loves it. I had it completed in less than an hour - including some hand stitching that's required. I made one for baby Evelyn the other day too but she was sleeping and I didn't want to wake her just to take a picture. I'll try to get one soon.

Another Penny Rug Christmas Tree

Just listed another one on Ebay. Off to make a couple more for my craft sale!
