Last Post for Awhile

I wanted to let everyone know that I may be blogging less over the next few weeks.  I am participating in 21 Days of Prayer and Fasting.  Our church and other churches in the state are uniting in prayer for our families, churches and communities intensively for 21 days.  If you would like to join us please do.  Our pastor encouraged us to fast in some area that we feel we may need to do so....food, television, social media or any thing that we need to cut back on.  So I've decided to limit my computer time.  I'll check in from time to time but not every day.  I'll be back January 23. So I'll leave you with a few pictures until I'm back.

I spent the day, one of my last vacation days, with my precious daughter and grand babies.  We shopped a bit, as much as possible with 2 small children, ate at Olive Garden and just visited.  I stocked up on white towels.  I have a love affair right now with white towels monogrammed with gold thread.

I stitched these for our bathroom.  The towels are from Marshall's.  They have lots of beautiful white towels and the thread color is isacord 0552.  These are the hand towels.

Bath towels

My shovels arrived today.  I saw the shovels for Valentines Day on Pinterest with "I Dig You" on them and little bags of candy attached.  I just have to do those for Gray's class.  I ordered 30 for $18.  That's a pretty good price.  I haven't decided how I want to do them yet.  I'm thinking.......

I ordered them from here.  Ok, well I have 1 vacation day left and back to work.  I hope everyone has a great rest of the week.  I'll be checking in but not every day.  I think we should have a give-away when I return....a pair of white towels with some one's initial!  Keep checking back :)

  5. Hi Jennifer I have a Janome 1100. I started with a Janome 350E. I love my 1100. It is a sewing and embroidery machine. The 350e was a great starter machine for me. If I can answer any other questions please let me know.

  6. Karen,
    Would you share where you purchased your shovels?Thank you so much,Elizabeth Glass

  7. I found them online at www.centurynovelty.com. They are all white. I saw that eBay had them in pink, red and white. They were a little more expensive on eBay. Good luck!

  8. Thank you very much! Elizabeth
