Busy Sewing

The girls and I have been busy sewing
for our Etsy shop while home schooling
keeping up our home.

Would you like to see some of our projects?

 Cassaundra made this apron and
she plans on making some that
will be full length, kind of like
Ma Ingalls use to wear.

Here is Brittany's Regency gown she just
completed and is now in her new Etsy
You can see more pictures at

...and this is a tote/bag I made.  This is
my first try at a project like this.  It was very
detailed, labor intensive and I probably really 
needed a commercial sewing machine for this.
My machine really got a work out on this one.

Have you been working on any projects lately?
 I would love to hear what you've been
up to lately.

Warm Country Blessings,


Oh, and by the way if you are interesting in making
the tote bag yourself, you can purchase the
pattern at:

If you have any questions about making this bag,
feel free to e-mail me or comment.

You and your girls have certainly been working with your hands in delight! How beautiful! It was great to see Steve and Luke last week, even though I did not get a chance even to say 'Hi!' It made me long to see you all the more! We'll make it out to TN one of these days!
Keep up the lovely work. I will be posting soon on my recent work... something I've never done before... reupholstering!

I love the aprons you make. I have never heard of the place where you sell them. Is it a store on line? Your tote/bag you made is beautiful. I love reading your blog. My daughter loves your aprons too.

Wow, I am really in awe of the three of you ladies! What talented sewing and such beautiful projects. That bag would have sent me running scared! Great job. :)

Everything looks lovely and just filled with so much detail.

My favorite, though, is the apron. It is perfect with long dresses :-)

Thank you for inspiring...
