What is living simply?

  • Living simply is not so much about the particulars of our lives as much as it is about the principles that govern them. Knowing what God has called you to do, and then doing it--that's living simply.

So cute! Now I'm inspired to tackle a sewing project for baby girl. I've been putting it off as I still get nervous reading patterns, etc. Love that fabric :)


You are a clever girl! When I was growing up I didn't know what it was to have store bought clothing. My Mom made everything! I am convinced the sewing gene skips a generation. I am so clumsy at it. I love to do other handcrafts, but sewing just eludes me. So I am a great admirer of sewers!
Have a happy 4th!

This is darling! It's making me want to go look at patterns to make myself some summer skirts! LOVE the fabric!


Wow! I have tried to sew a few things but I think I'd better stick to scrapbooking. Sewing is totally not my forte. YOU ARE MY HERO! The skirt is very cute but I am in love with that dress!

I'm size 7/8 if you feel like whipping one up!


Great idea re-using a bedspread. Is that bias tape at the bottom of the skirt?? Happy Fourth!
