What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

Keep Calm, Craft On

My helper. 

Don't you love my chipped, dirty floor?!  I knew you did.


How interesting that Keep Calm, Craft On can imply that crafting is a means of keeping calm for crafty individuals OR it could be a call to arms to crafty procrastinators' to just buck up and get 'er done.

I'd say this week, for me, I am in the latter camp.

Tomorrow is Uncle Nathan and Almost-Aunt Leia's wedding (Matt's brother) and I am scurrying about making a few dresses. 

Because Hobby Lobby had beautiful swan fabric on sale for $3.00 a yard, I got the patterns for $1.00 and it just screamed MAKE ME.  

Originally, I was going to make Easter dresses from this fabric (ahem) but when that deadline came and went, I justified the procrastination as the wedding would be a better time to wear the dresses.  That is, if that deadline doesn't come and go too.

Leave it to me to wait until a day or two beforehand.

Thankfully, Corynn is out of the sweet little fabrics phase of Mama-made dresses and has her own dress picked out so that is one less dress to make.   I was going to sew myself a dress (not from swan fabric, mind you) but I have nixed that idea.  I know my limitations.

 I am not insane.

Not THAT insane anyway.

Also this week I crocheted a cowl for a friend.  Just have to add the button and get that mailed out.


Dabbling between Baptism is Not Enough by John G. Crawford and The Deluded Athiest by Douglas Wilson.  Probably should stick to one or the other because I feel like I am retaining very little from either since my attentions are split.  
In audiobook form, I've been listening to Seven Men by Eric Metaxas

You always find the best fabric! So perfect for your little, bright blondies. I am drooling and can't wait to see final dresses.
p.s. Yes. I do love that chipped floor. It pleases my personal aesthetic.

Yes, all caps. I'll trade her for some new FFP posts.
