"The aged women likewise, that they be in behavior as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things; that they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed." Titus 2:3-5

About Me

Oregon, United States
I am a happy, Christian, wife and post-homeschooling mother. I have spent the last several years homeschooling and now I am "adjusting" to a new season of life as "empty nester". In 2010 we moved to be Host/Caretakers at a Bible Camp. We look at our ministry here as preparing the way for the gospel to be shared as well as encouraging believers in their daily walk. I am a farmgirl at heart and love the country, I love gardening and food preserving. I also, love tea parties!! I also have a Titus 2 heart and want to share with anyone willing to listen and learn. I love having friends over and teaching them how to make bread or put up pickles. And as we work, I love to encourage them to love their husbands and their children and to be Keepers at Home and all that implies and I love that you let me do that here!! Hope you enjoy visiting my farm and walking through a journey in life with me.......I hope at some point in time I can encourage you in your walk and in your home..........

Wedding Gift...........

Remember the blessing of the wonderful fabric I found in my stash the other day? Here is what I came up with. I love how the Lord can work in our minds to help us be creative and use what He has provided and to make very good use of "what I have in my hand".......
I did purchase a small red bowl that works well with all the other red in her kitchen.
With the brown fabric and the small red plaid I made potholders. I sewed two pieces of fabric with a piece of old towel in between, running across the rectangle a few times to create quilting.
Then I used the same back fabric for
the binding around the edge.
With the large red plaid and coordinating floral piece I made an apron. I used the floral for pockets, strings and the lining.

You could actually wear this on either side, this side just does not have pockets.
I had planned on making a bit more, but ran out of time. So, there you have it....a wedding gift made from my stash!!
How fun is that!!
