Not much to report....

 Not a whole lot of crafting has been going on here on my little no acreage homestead. I have been feeling a little under the weather sense we got back from a friends wedding this past Monday.
 Mostly headaches and just feeling tired. I don't really travel well. Even though it's just an hour difference in time, going ahead that hour in Ohio, then going back an hour here in Missouri really took a toll on my body. My sleep patterns have been off all week and I just felt drained.
 But I'm starting to feel better and am waking up at my normal time in the mornings.
I have been sitting out on my little porch alot these past few mornings, just listening to nature. 
It's hard to explain where we live, it's not the country, it's not town, it's not really a suburb. There are woods all around us, and we are kind of off the main roads, in an apartment with people all around. But one thing for sure, we are most definitely in Southern Missouri.
The 'draw' that every one speaks with is very much amusing.

Well I haven't been crafting, but I have been gardening. I have some containers and dirt and seeds.
I have more to plant, and I'm very excited to see what my little "gardens" will produce for us.
I have lettuce, tomatoes, peppers, carrots, turnips, bush beans, and daisies. I also had some celery in the fridge so I cut off the bottom and put it in some water to see if it would grow. :) I'm very excited to see if it works.

Well, I hope you are having a wonderful day. Keep on Crafting!!

So a (long) while ago my momma, gave me a bag of scrap fabric to use. As I dug through, I found one of my daddies old shirts.
 It was too big for me to wear, let alone my husband. So what did I do with  it?!

 I Cut It Up!!!

I found a blog where the girl cut up her husbands old button up shirts and made skirts out of them. After looking it over I saw that it was soooooooo easy. So I did it. :)

I made a tie on it from the sleeves (it would have worked better if they where long sleeves but oh well work with what you have.) I love it. I wear it to church and when I go out and about. It's a great picknic skirt, and I'm on the look out for more button ups to transform. :)

Also the sleeves made a great hat. lol

Also last Easter, I made my Niece and Nephew some cute little gifts.....

An old bed sheet, and an old lace curtain made a cute tie and skirt for them. :)

 My Nephew Liked His Tie!

 Well that's all for now. TaTa For Now.

 Happy Crafting!!!!

Inspiration from Home.

 A little while ago I went home for a visit. It was a good visit. I went to support Momma at Little Red Hen, then just chilled at home.
 The open house went ok. Not very many people were out and about so we didn't get many visitors. But it was an experience.
 While I was home I took some pictures, Wanna see them?!

Here they are...

This is my home, my place to go to get away for a bit. Re-spark the country girl in me and get a little bit muddy. I miss having my horses, and really miss the quietness of country nights. But I live not far and visit quite often. 

I'm still working on some creations. It's taking longer this week to do so, because My Darling Husband and I are having a pic nick for our 1 Year Wedding Anniversary! So my focus has been getting a menu planned, and budgeted and cleaning the apartment. But next week, I will be back at the sewing machine. Speaking of apartment... Would you like to see my Creative Space?!?

Here it is....

And here are some Coffee Cozies that I did finish...

The last one is one I made as a gift for wedding shower I'm going to next weekend. Even a Bride can have her Wedding Day Coffee in Style. :)

I hope you are having a wonderfully, and perfectly imperfect day.

Many Blessings,


You can Never be imperfect, The word its Self says I'mPerfect. (me)
