I can't believe how busy I have been lately. Or maybe it is just that I'm getting older and everything is harder and taking longer.

I've been able to spend some precious time with the boys. Ben is excited about soccer and Caleb really liked playing miniature golf.

Little Eli turned 2!

Ben is getting so big. He'll be going to school in the fall.

Bev and I are in charge of Spotlight on Ministry, where we recognized someone(s) for their ministry in the church. This month we choose the Worship Team. She made the two men each a cake and I made up these nail care kits for the women.

I did manage to get these 3 store models done. The Baby Churn Dash (41419) worked up pretty quick and I really like the Changing Season Pillows (44029). Also, check out the Erica's Craft Email Newsletter.

The Michiana Sewing B has taken on a new project. Little Dresses for Africa (and Haiti). There is a lot of excitment for this project. Val Forsey came in to the group this paste Tuesday to give a demonstration on how to make the dresses. If you have AND new/used pillowcases or washable ribbon that you would like to donate, we would be grateful. I'm working on making a 4 minute video to show at church on Sunday about this project, hoping to get support for the B'er with this project.

We also had two B's last at Blair Hills and one at Michiana Community Church of God. I'm trying to get a group together to take the train to Chicago to go to a quilt shop called Quiltogy. Kristie will have quilts displayed at the Berrien Town and Country Quilt Show on the 26th and 27th.

AND...I did make time to go to the Farmer's Market. I love the South Bend Farmer's Market!


  1. the farmers market selection looks great!

  2. Oh the 'Nail Care Kits' came up lovely Bev...did any get into the Christmas Crafting Box?

  3. Whoops...I meant 'Bev' on the brain to-night..sorry darl.

  4. No, sorry to say. I had one extra...but my daughter saw it...she took it. I WILL make more!
