Well, I certainly didn't mean to stay away so long, but sometimes, that just happens. We had such warm and lovely temps the last couple of days (74* yesterday) and today it is the high of 51* and it feels like -35 w/the wind blowing, at least to me! What a drastic change in temps, but it does keep me more motivated to do some of my favorite things, like sewing..........I gave you a sneak peek from the last post and this is what I made w/that 'word' fabric. A giant tote bag! LOL I originally thought that I could make it into a purse, but I guess I didn't realize just how big it really was until I started sewing the pieces/parts together. I hadn't made a casing in forever and thought the pattern was wrong! duh! It was just me!! The pattern did have one mistake in it tho', but I figured it out BEFORE I sewed it like the pattern told me to do.
Now you have to realize I have not made a pumpkin pie in about 30 yrs, so was a bit out of practice. (My MIL always brings pies up for our household to eat, so why bother, I say)....well, my family thought it was pretty doggone good for the most part. (you can see where the foil got stuck to the pie when I tried to pull it off). But I still need LOTS of practice and my hubby and sons are all for it!!!
These books are FREE from Bethany House/Chosen books in exchange for an honest review.
This time I chose some NON-fiction and I have been so blessed in reading them!!
"The Sure Cure for Worry" by Kent Crockett, is a truly wonderful book that teaches you how to learn to trust God no matter what happens in your life. He gives clear,concise instructions, along w/many humorous and amazing true-life stories to help drive the point he is making. I used it as another devotional book during my own private quiet time and gained a wealth of knowledge about how NOT to worry. He also gives questions at the end of each chapter to help you remember what you just learned. I only hope I can remember everything he taught me! I highly recommend this book to anyone who struggles w/worry! I can't wait to read more of his books!!
This would make a wonderful nighttime devotional to read before bedtime each night or would make a very nice gift for someone special. What a sweet book! I highly recommend it!
