New Machine

Yesterday, I decided I just could not fix my machine.  We decided we should not be having all that trouble with a new machine so we took the machine back to Wal-Mart where we had purchased it.  As you all recall, I had not had the machine very long at all and it has always given me trouble.  Anyway, Wal-Mart took it back and we exchanged it for this machine.  As soon as I started sewing on it, it was obvious this is a better machine.  I have never used a Singer before but I definitely pray we will be getting better service from this one than from the Brother.  I finished the sewing project that I had previously started.

This is for my little man, Daniel, who loves, loves, loves to help his mom in the kitchen.  I hope it looks like a little boy apron.  I wanted something with tractors on it but blue jean material was all I had that looked boyish.  Weather permitted they will be coming up Sunday.  Chuck and his family may come also.  This would be a first-all my grandkids in the house at the same time.  WOW!  They are calling for some snow to hit here tomorrow and Sunday so we’ll just have to wait and see.

We will be having our candlelight service at church tonight.  This is such a beautiful service.  We have these little shelves on the walls and on top of the shelves we have oil lamps.  All the oil lamps are lit and the electric lights are turned off.  It is absolutely beautiful.  We have communion and the pastor has a message.  Then we all light our individual candles, gather around in a circle and sing Christmas hymms.  It is such a special time and we all look forward to it.  I pray you will all have a wonderfully blessed Christmas Eve as well. 

Celebrate the birth of our Savior.  May He bless each of you with a special portion of His presence on this wonderful day-Christ’s birthday.   God bless.

Toy Chest

Remember last week I said we were working on a wood project.  Well here it is.  I couldn’t post about it then because we wanted it to be a surprise.  Daniels birthday is coming up so we made him a much needed toy chest.  The train on the front was my first time painting a design on a project.  It was fun, however I was concerned I would mess it up.  It turned out okay though.  Daniel seemed to like it and Mom really liked it.  Now she has a place for some of his toys.  He loves trains and tractors.  I looked for a stencil but couldn’t find one so we just made our own.  George got the picture from the internet.  I cut it out and traced it on the wood, then painted it in.  I told him he should make some more perhaps to sell.   We’ll see.  Gotta go gather beets.  God Bless.
