God has blessed my day! I got up this morning and had a rough start to my day. I was worried over an issue and wanted to dwell and wallow in it, instead I made myself do my devotions. I made myself take a shower and get dressed. I made myself do school with the children. I put the problem on the back burner and decided I had to leave it in God's hands. I have worked very hard since the 1st of the year to stay on track. To keep a type of schedule with schoolwork and housework. Today by the grace of God I was able to do that. He blessed me with things running smoothly and an hour of free time to sew. I couldn't believe it. I darned a pair of socks, sewed a button on a shirt, began embroidering a skirt, and began making another skirt.

I have a jean skirt I made several years ago that I love. Shortly after Christmas something got spilled on it and nothing would take the stain out. Instead of chucking it I am embroidering butterflies over the 3 stain spots. I will post a picture when I finish. I had cut out a skirt for myself in a pretty floral back in October and had not found time to finish it. Tonight I got the side seams sewn.

I am hoping and praying that staying on schedule is making life easier around here and there will be more times like this.

Sew Long for Now!

You know what, Cindi? This blog reminds me of Susan Wise Bauer's blog---tracking her creative process too. I LIKE it. And this post was so encouraging--that when we stay the course and stay faithful to keeping our house and teaching on track---He creates time for our other pursuits! Oh, THANK YOU, Cindi!!! (PS--the skirt looks beautiful!)
