So this past weekend, I was invited to my Mom's church for a women's dinner. "A Night In My Father's Vineyard." While my Mom read various devotional selections about vineyards relating to John 15:5, "I am the Vine and you are the branches..." I painted. It has been a long time since I have painted and I have to tell you I was a little nervous about pulling out the brushes for the first time in 3 years in front of a large room full of women!! But it all worked out well. I painted a landscape of a vineyard and then one large grape vine/plant with lots of grape clusters on it. I wasn't 100% sold on it the night of the dinner, but after a little tweaking and some repainting the next day, I am quite pleased. The church is going to hang it in their "meeting room" and put a frame around it. It is a very large picture 8ft x 6 ft so it should make quite a statement! Here are some pictures of the during - and wouldn't yuu know it, I didn't get any pictures of it completed! Story of my life!
I'm a very happy, very busy wife to the most handsome soldier in the world! A sometimes crazy homeschool mom, who does not take lightly the privilege that I have to be home with my two fabulous kiddos teaching them the basics of school and hopefully shaping them into, "a compassionate Godly leader" and "a respectable young lady who loves Jesus!" I love to be creative and frugal at the same time!
I enjoy anything creative. My sewing machine and I are inseparatable and you can find me sitting at it most days after we finish school. I love anything to do with fabric. Quilting, making bags, attempting to make clothes... but my favorite is mixing fabric and furniture. I love making slipcovers and re-upholstering furniture.
Currently I am trying to fill my time with projects while Handsome Hubby is deployed. I'm not really sure what time I am trying to fill since I keep myselft quite busy with taking care of the home and kids, homeschooling, grocery shopping, making meals, taking care of the vehicles and of course laundry. Laundry, laundry and more laundry!!!
