Sewing for the King...

As I was sitting at my machine last night feeling for not having for not having the same amount of sales as last week I began to pray. I realized in the zeal of building my business again I have not stopped to listen to Him..

                                        "Be still, and KNOW that I Am God'   (Psalm 46:10)
He spoke to me in that still small voice and told me to be patient. He impressed upon me that I am sewing for Him. He slowed down my business a to show me that each garment is made for His purpose, and that I am to construct each piece as is I were making a robe for the King.
Thank you God for God for always being so loving and patient with me in my walk with you.

more fireworks, and another new dress...

We were able to get out and see some real fireworks last night...
 We had a lot of fun...

we danced...
we twirled

we laid in the grass (plus toes)
  Life was not all leaping and twirling over the holiday though...I also made this fancy dress for my Etsy shop
fancy dress

fancy because there is all of this detailed work right here, with the ruffle and such...stay tuned for more like this.
My inspiration behind this dress was early 1940's summer picnic in Germany...(not that I did that, but that is what I was thinking of)

Oh, and I am also selling my work on Art fire now too...It seems like a pretty neat artisan venue, though I also LOVE etsy!
                                                                         Happy Tuesday!!

fireworks and a new dress....

We did have big plans for going the local lake for the 4th, and watching the fireworks, but silly us, they were on Saturday...Fortunately some places still have fireworks tonight so we are going to drive to the next town over, and watch them tonight...
We also had some firework fun at the house last night as well
daddy set off fireworks

mommy held back baby from touching the fireworks showed baby the fireworks

the little girl saw the fireworks

It was all great fun.... I also constructed a new dress for my shop

The inspiration behind this dress was my desire as a teenager to become a flight attendant. As I was making this dress, I was thinking how fun it would be to design a flight attendant line (seriously, these things use to be high fashion)
see what I mean?  (photo courtesy of trip cart)

Happy Monday!
