Tee Shirt Dress

100_1847

This is a picture from several years back.  I was reading one of my blogger friends post and she was looking for a modest dress pattern.  I commented about how I had made these dresses before but I felt like my instructions were lacking.  I dug in my old pictures and found this.  I hope this makes it a little easier for her to understand.

Today has been cold and very windy.  Wind gusts of about 40-50 mph.  We are doing school as usual.  I hope to get some sewing in after school.  Supper tonight is homemade pizza.  Yesterday was very busy cleaning the attic.  We use this space as storage and every year it seems to get way out of hand.  It looks very organized now.  Not for long, I’m sure.  I’ve been trying to do some cleaning and organizing this week.  Eliminating some clutter.  I seem to have an over abundance of clutter. 

Well, time for school to start back.  Lunch break is over.  Enjoy your evening and God bless.

Wood

An almost empty wood pile.  Remember how this looked last fall.  I would show you the picture but all my old pictures are still sleeping on my computer, which is “resting” for a while.  Anyway, last fall this shed had 7 rows deep of wood and 2 rows on each side.  All gone.  We used almost all of the wood last winter.  Saturday, we all worked on the wood pile.  George and I used the splitter and the girls stacked it up.

This is what the pile looked like.  We have about 1/3 of it split and stacked in the building-three rows deep.  We want to have more wood this winter than we had last winter.  Just in case, it is another hard winter.  It is better to be prepared.   I want to take a moment to complement my girls.  They worked very hard Saturday and did an excellent job stacking the wood.  Thank you, Julie and Grace.

Another picture I know Jess will love.  The girls found this lunar moth on the building the other day.  Very pretty.  They enjoy finding pictures for me to use.  Rather chilly here today.  Upper 40’s for the temperature. Lots of rain.  We had a really hard rain last night while we were at church.  We do our Sunday night study in the basement.  Water started coming in through the basement door.  We had to stop our study and get busy-quick.  The outside drain could not handle all the water.  Thanks to mops, a shop vac, and a sump pump we finally got it all dried out.  I’m just glad it happened while we were there.  It would not have been fun to discover all that water on Wednesday night.  Imagine what damage it could have done.  God is good.  Of course, after all that hard work, the food tasted extra good.  Time for piano lessons.  Take care and God bless.
