“....He LIVES, He LIVES! Christ Jesus, Lives today... He walks with me and talks with me along life's narrow way. He lives, He lives, Salvation to impart....
You ask me how I know He lives.... He lives, within my heart!”

Hymn: "He Lives"

TUTORIAL- How to make a peasant dress

I enjoy sewing children's clothes and hope someone can learn from this sewing "tutorial" :-)

Detail of the top of the dress

The two different materials I used.
I liked the contrasting colors.


The top of the gathered skirt (this will be sewn to the bodice/top of the dress)

The peasant bodice with elastic in the neck and sleeves.
Elastic creates such pretty, feminine, gathers :-)

The skirt after I cut off the original waistband.
(This was a thrift store bargain I found. It is a linen woman's skirt)

My First Post!

I aspire to honor my Creator and Savior in all I say and do. Our family lives on a quiet little street in the heart of Oklahoma. We have three acres and enjoy taking care of six sheep (three are lambs, including one that was born just days ago), a brown and white rabbit called Cottontail, and eleven assorted chickens from whom we enjoy getting our own fresh eggs. On Tuesday, our broody hen hatched a chick! Now we have two chicks and there are three more eggs we are waiting on.

We hatched this rooster ourselves in an 4-H incubator last summer.

The race is on!

The "barnyard"

Our plum, pear and redbud trees are all in full blossom. I enjoy the spring- the weather is just right, and outside all the bright colors and delicious scents are just waiting to be savored!

Photography, and Writing are my strong points but I also enjoy sewing, and arts and crafts.

Whenever I have the time, I enjoy immersing myself in a good book from the library. :-)

Bye for now! Elizabeth. <><
