Sewing projects

I was able to spend yesterday sewing up some more backsacks.  I got 7 completed.  I've made it a joke not to sew on Sundays, as I usually have more mess ups and problems on Sunday, but all went well yesterday.

Woke up to a dusting of snow, and icy roads.  We were scheduled to have a new roof put on today, but it is too cold for the shingles to lay down properly.

Food and Nutrition 4H meeting canceled for all of March and April.  I hope they can be scheduled for another day each month.  We've only met once so far this year.

Menu plan for the week:
Chicken Verde ( chicken seasoned with salt, pepper, garlic power and a can of verde sauce)
Italian Beef sandwiches
Chicken and dumplings
Meatballs with mushroom gravy

Long time

Well, it's been a long time since I've blogged anything.
I hope I can figure out how this new blogger works!

Been doing lots since I've last checked in.  Oldest daughter graduated from homeschool.
Went to 2 church camps last summer, celebrated 25 anniversary with a wonderful 3 day trip, but ended up with food poisoning.  

Those seem to be the highlights that stick out in my mind.

So I've really gotten into pyrograpy the last few weeks, and LOVE it.  I want to start doing some craft shows/fairs.

I made a bunch of backsacks for all our  campers last year, around 14.  I love making them.

 Here is a new one.

I made all the girls headbands too.  So these are just a few of the crafty things I'd like to sell.

I started a "Blessing Jar"   And it is getting quite full already.

Got the garden tilled up on Saturday, looking forward to getting that started.

My daughters have redecorated their bathroom. They had to remove wallpaper, sand walls, scrape loose paint from ceiling, patch and sand, remove and spray paint all the pulls, paint walls, ceiling and trim, add new switch plates and outlet covers.  They did a great job.

Super Bowl Sunday our living room ceiling began leaking, bad.  Like we needed buckets, bad.  Upon inspection insurance company decided that we indeed had hail damage so we get a new roof, new ceiling, and new paint.
