I had to laugh yesterday. Dani was fretting and madly rinsing out the apron she’d been wearing. Why? She’d been cleaning the kitchen sink and had splattered some bleach onto the apron. Now, I do appreciate her immediately rinsing the apron before the bleach ate a hole in it, but she’s still fretting even […]

Lots of projects finished this week!! Yahoo!!! I still have plenty of Works In Progress, though, too. I think the WIPs will remain in constant supply until almost Christmas. That’s a good thing! Proverbs 31 tells us that the excellent wife “eats not the bread of idleness”. So in my striving to be a […]

As most of you know, there’s been a lot of sewing and crafting going on at my house recently. Most of you also know that I’ve only recently been able to get back into the swing of things, craft-wise and sewing-wise. Having a place to keep things out makes it easier to keep projects […]

I have fiddled around with making pot holders to go with the aprons I was making for myself and for Corin. I thought some cute fall pot holders would be nice in our kitchens!! I didn’t want to make pot holders that were useless, though! I’ve been given far too many cute, homemade pot […]

My Grandmother’s Applesauce Cake (An Apple A Day Recipe)

I don’t remember very much about my grandmother. I called her “Grandmother”. Very formal, now that I think back on it, but I didn’t seem so at the time. She became increasingly senile from the time that I was very young, and passed away when I was only 12. She lived in the midwest, while […]

Don’t miss this great post over at Dominion Family. Not only is it a great reminder to all of us (me included!!), but it’s also a wonderful reminder that things are quite often caught rather than taught when it comes to our children.

I try do my personal Bible reading while my […]

What to do with scraps of lovely fabric left over from a sewing project. It always bugs me, having just little bits and pieces. It seems so wasteful. About a month ago I thought about trying my hand at making a fabric bookmark. We are a family of readers and bookmarks are always […]

Copperswife’s Apple Muffins (An Apple A Day Recipe)

If we don’t have coffeecake on Sunday morning, it’s a sure bet that we’ll be having muffins instead!! Again, a yummy, easy breakfast for Sunday morning before worship that is made ahead on Saturday. These are great and just seem to say, “Fall!”. I do realize that I failed to post an apple recipe yesterday. […]

I love putting out my fall decorations every year. I’m not sure if it’s the fact that putting out my fall things means that there’s a change in the weather just around the corner, or if it’s the fact that we just get a new look for awhile. Maybe it’s a combination of both. […]
