Sip and Stitch With my Mending Basket...

Every Thursday at Happiness Comes

Oh the bitter irony of it all. I did all my mending a couple of weeks ago. My basket was empty. I wrote about it. I felt great about it. Then, my kids found out my basket was empty. Out came things they hadn't been wearing because they needed mending! Oh my! I started noticing things that needed a stitch or two here or there. Oh my! My mending basket overfloweth! So, for my first Sewing Bee, I'll be stitching and mending my way through my basket. Since I don't have a dedicated block of time today, I'll just pick it up when I sit and listen to the children read. I think I'll enjoy a cup of my favorite Folgers French Vanilla Cappuccino while I stitch.

Keep Calm and Mend On!
May I suggest?

  1. I think I'd teach the girls how to mend! :) lol

  2. I like Sue's thinking!

  3. Hi Laura, you won the Sew and Stow book at my blog giveaway! From the looks of your blog here, I think picked the right person!

    I'll need you to go to my profile and email me your mailing address so I can get this out to you.


  4. What a pretty blog space you have! Hurray for you mending your way throughout the day! I'm much more likely to repurpose clothing than to mend it...


Thank you for praying for me! Thank you for encouraging me so much through this cancer treatment. I have the best blog friends in the world! Yes! You!

I read all your comments and respond as I can right now.
Please make sure I have your email if you want me to respond or pray for you. For some reason Blogger isn't notifying me of comments right now, so I may be a bit slower.

God bless you all! This life only works with Jesus. The next life is a continuation of this one—make sure you spend it with Jesus. Jesus is the only way to God the Father!
