Slice of Heaven

A few days ago I returned home from running errands just as an afternoon snow storm was beginning.  A mug of hot tea in hand, I headed upstairs to my evolving new sewing room in the loft--for the rest of the afternoon.  Ahh...a foretaste of heaven! I have purposely left the windows curtain-less as they make me feel like I'm in a tree house--the views and light delight me no matter the time of day or the season.  Every time I looked up from my sewing, I just smiled out loud. 

So, I finished a baby gift of receiving blankets and bibs for a dear young friend...



and dug out some UFOs...
I started the binding for this table topper...
and laundered this black & red dresser topper for my bedroom...

and came across these happy birds that I had started last summer and plan to finish up into a runner...

Then, how about the traditional Mongolian ger furniture?  I ordered some made back in UB and it came back with some of our other furniture and belongings last fall.  It's a bit rough around the edges (hence the rubber bands holding the doors shut on the red piece), but isn't it fun? ...and, it does exactly what I wanted it to--store fabric, and ribbon, and patterns...   I couldn't decide on a color, so I ordered one of each.













Last but not least, my real favorite of the sewing room--this dollhouse!  Another generation is enjoying it (Randy made one for both Jana & Nikki :) and it just warms my heart (and keeps little hands busy, too :).
So, it is with a grateful heart that I enjoy all of the above.

...but [trust] in the living God, 
who gives us richly all things to enjoy.
