WIP's Sleep Sacks, Birthday Photos, Frosty Woods, and a Care Package
My first WIP..is a set of photos from Lena's 2nd Birthday party which I'm planning to share this Saturday...She's so cute!
I'm also working on tomorrow's post -- a beautiful set of photos of lovely things on our little 'hobby farm' all covered in ice. It was a great photo opportunity and my 16 yr.old took some amazing photos in the woods!
I also made a .pdf this afternoon of the sleep sack pattern I made off of Ebeth's store bought one so that I can do the Sleep Sac tutorial on Friday. I do think you seamstresses will like that. :o)
My sweet son, Matthew, with grandkids, Brennan and Colin
But my most important W.I.P is a care package for my Marine son, Matthew, and his buddies.
I spent a good hour on the phone with my Marine son whose best friend was just killed in action. He's only been in Afghanistan a couple of weeks. So I'm asking everyone to pray for Matthew and for his friend's family as they are truly grieving..and having a hard time sleeping at night.
My care package for Matthew will include...flavored coffees...drawing pencils...creamer..photos from home...and an art book...and lots of prayer. I'm shopping today for big bags of coffee..and huge containers of creamer. Matthew and his buddies share all their good stuff. He really needs to know we are thinking of him. :o)
I hope all is well at your home and that you are staying warm! We are getting more ice and snow today..and the kids and grandkids are coming over for dinner tonight..so it will be fun and busy this evening!
