The family room

I’ve been dying to post this but was waiting till it was finished. Today the carpet was going in but the carpet man cancelled 🙁 My hopes were dashed but learning to be flexable. I can’t wait any longer so here goes. Upstairs in my house was a weird group of three rooms, two smaller and one ok sized. We nocked a few walls down to create a family room. Our house is a big house and has 7 bedrooms, with the creating the family room it left us with 6 so for sure still lots of rooms (one bedroom we already use as a school room).

It has really come along. I will update once the carpet is in. I am very pleased with how it turned out, I am blessed with a talented spouse.

We like to sew

This year the urge hit to sew, sew things like doll clothes. Than we got our daughter an American girl doll.

Yes she wanted it but it was also me living threw my daughter. I wanted one as a child, my favorite past time was playing dolls, I was never into Barbies (they were taboo in our household) but into my rag doll Megan which my aunt made, I liked baby dolls too. I know I would have loved an American girl doll. In April my in laws arrived for a visit and along with them came a sewing addict. Yes my husbands mom has become some kind of sewing fiend. It was perfect timing really. She is extremely talented and a good teacher so with her help she has set me on my way. My mom had taught me too but it’s been a few years and I was a bit rusty. We made a couple of outfits together.

Here is one we did, PJ’s.
Of course she did more than a few on her own.

Here’s one if her amazing creations.
Since she has left I have been trying to figure out some patterns, figure out the sewing machine and  just finding time to sew period. It has now finally come together and here is my creation!

I made two of these one for each daughter (we plan to get an America girl doll for my older daughter too).  I like to go into my sewing zone and turn some music on or put on some language courses and sew away.

My sister in law from Canada is a very talented sewer too and she has a sight called Archer’s and you should check it out!

30th

Yep, it’s official now I’ve hit the 3 0 There is this e-card floating around the Internet that has this quote that goes like this “I’m thirty but I still feel twenty…. Until I hang around with twenty year olds than I’m like no, never mind, I’m thirty.” That sums up how I feel about my age.

I had a good day. Had like a double party. My sister and her family came over and we had lunch/dinner than everyone showed up for study and it was a party all over again. I am blessed, God is good. The one draw back is my family from Honduras was here and they flew out early this morning so knowing they were leaving was a bit, no majorly depressing, but am thankful they were here as long as they were.

Post surgery

My oldest had a surgery on her right hand and left foot 6 weeks ago.

It has been a hard summer to be in a cast with it being so hot, all one wants to do is swim.
Her cast was removed a week ago, we have been doing lots of swimming since. Her hand and foot seam to be healing nicely.

She can now straighten her finger which before she could not. It seams the surgeries have been a success! Praise the Lord for that. We can can now enjoy the rest of the summer a bit more freely.
