a winnner!!! and some answers...

First, I have to admit that I cannot stop putting initials onto things...I made these towels for my bathroom the other day. :)
Secondly, all of you...get those sewing machines OUT of the boxes and OUT of the closets!!!! Start with sewing straight lines and go from there. :) You can do it.

And now, I will do my best to answer some of the great questions you guys had... :)
1. All time favorite crafts? Anything easy and uncomplicated...I hate patterns or projects that take weeks or months to make...I like to see results yesterday! That is what keeps me motivated and keeps my craftiness going. :)
2. Do I put my sewing machine away after I am done using it? Umm...let's see...my husband says it's not a family dinner unless she is at the table. So, no, I don't put it away often...usually just when I need a break from sewing or we have people coming to dinner. :) Otherwise she lives right there on the dining room table. :)
3. Am I ready for the baby? As much as one can be I guess...I don't have too many things I am dying to get done before the baby comes but I probably should pack a hospital bag soon...and do some grocery shopping. :) Oh and I still need to get some goodies for Moses to get from his new little brother when he comes to the hospital to see him for the first time. :)
4. What does Doug do? My wonderful honey is an executive at Target. :) He is also a great daddy and really handsome to boot. :)
5. What do I want to try next? Hmmm....there is always something...right now I have some new fabric (above)sitting in the sewing basket to make some yummy covers for my couch throw pillows.
6. Creative inspiration? Jesus...Moses...Doug...wanting to make things for family...being a little cheap and not wanting to pay for something that I think I can make and love more. :)
7. Do we plan to home school? Probably not. I just don't think that I am made that way. :) We would love to find a good Christian private school but it will all depend on where we are in the world when the boys start school...and there is something to be said about teaching your kids to be a light for Jesus in a public school. :)
Ok...think I will stop there for now...I will try to finish up the rest of the questions throughout the week though so stay tuned! :)

The winner of the fabulous loot(via random.org) is Tammi!! :) Tammi...contact me via Etsy to give me your address and I will get all those goodies out to you!! :) And Tammi...go update that blog girl! :)

And last but not least...

I want to make pillows for my couch, but do not know how to sew...do not own a sewing machine and have no clue where to find fabric. Any suggestions???

Okay so I was reading and got to the part about the little ones being a light for Jesus in a public school...

The other night my 5 year old says to me "Mommy we can say I love you in my school. Mrs. E said it's okay."

So my first thought is uh oh whose she telling she loves them...

"God says we are supposed to love everyone. So I tell them I love them."

I didn't know what to say except to tell her she's right.
