Sense and Sensibility patterns now has e-patterns!

You get to buy and print their patterns right from their site. So, if you have a special dress you need to make soon and can't wait for the pattern to be shipped to you, you are able to print them off for a few dollars and voila, you can start right away! And if you lose a piece or need to cut it out to a new size, you can just go back and print off what you need!

Here is a dress I made several years ago using the Romantic Dress pattern.

So exciting......Please check it out!!!!

Life just got so much better for this seamstress...........

Our Trip to the Wiregrass Heritage Festival

Saturday, mama,Rebekah, Emily, Natalie and I went to the Heritage festival held at Landmark Park here in Alabama. It was a lot of fun and we took a lot of pictures! Here are some for your enjoyment. :-)

On the way there, we were listening to one of our favorite c.d.s and singing along.........

Apparently Natalie didn't like Bekah's singing.......:-(

We walked around for a good bit, looking at the exhibitions and all. We saw some old buildings that had been turned into old-timey shops, and mama had Bekah and Emily pose on the steps.

My friend Sarah, who plays the dulcimer, was there along with several other dulcimer players. They played a lot of hymns and folk songs, and did a very good job!

Sarah playing. Don't you just love her dress?

We stopped to admire some pigs.......they were kinda cute.:-)

Natalie really enjoyed getting to see the pigs......

and the goat. I posted this picture because this goat looks so much like a goat we use to have named Louisa. Except this one is about twice her size, and has horns........:-)

Old-timey soap making. I'm glad we can buy our soap now! It looks like fun when your standing there watching them, but after a while I'm sure it gets to be very hard.

One of the men in charge of fire wood saw Emily standing around idle........

and put her to work.:-)

Pull Emmi, pull!

A cooking demonstration.

What an interesting way to cook a chicken!

We decided to try out one of the walking trails with Mrs. Gillis and her son Daniel. The trail was a little bumpy for the stroller, but we managed to make it though.:-)

Here Bekah, Daniel and Emily have stopped to inspect a stream. We saw a lot of fish and even a turtle!

An old tree they cut down. The little cards mark each ring on the tree, showing how old the tree is. The first one starts with I think 900 a.d. Wow.........

After we got through on the walking trail, we went to get something to drink.

Natalie being silly for the camera.


I love this picture of Emily.......such a happy smile.:-)

All of us posing on the church steps.

Natalie stole Emilie's hat!

The whole day was a lot of fun! I can't wait to go back!

Hello Again!

Well, I'm back! :-)
We have managed to move into my Aunt and Uncle's house and have settled in wonderfully. We've also started school again. My sister Rebekah has a new blog up as well, so please go and visit her there! (and please feel free to leave her comments)

I haven't blogged lately because I didn't really have anything to say.:-) However, seeing as my friend Allison was sweet enough to give me a blogging award and tag me, I think I need to do something. :-)

So, first I've been given the "Kindred Spirit award", part of the Kindred Spirit Network. This is a neat site with blogs by different girls, on all different subjects, so please be sure to check it out!


Now, I am supposed to choose some fellow bloggers to give this award to, so I pick........

Sarah from Bubblegumstew

Savannah from The Family Cochran

My sister Rebekah from Kolo and Spice and Everything Nice.

Six Random Things About me

1. Dark chocolate truffles are my very best firends.

2. I have to look at someone when they talk to me, because I can't hear out of the sides of my ears. My dad is the same way.

3. The one time I drove a vehicle for more than 5 minutes, I wrecked it.

4. I have moved 3 times in the last 2 years, and have been to over a dozen states in the last 4 years.

5. At one time my sisters and I owned a collection of approximately 8 hunting, skinning and pocket knives, 2 BB guns, 2 archery sets, 1 hatchet, and could build a 6x6 emergency/play shelter out of cinder blocks, fence posts and tarps in less than 2 hours. (I am proud of that.)

6. Rain frogs and lizards make me cry. :-)

I hereby tag




Well, that's all for now folks!
