The Midwest Abode

Hi Y’all! Long time, no post. It has been 16 weeks since my last post. Unbelievable! Needless, to say I’ve been working a lot. It’s what I came here for. But work is not ALL I do. I make it to the gym a few times a week, take my dog for a walk at least once a week, go to church and bible study, shop, go out to eat. I do the latter less often than I used to (for a few different reasons) but I do love me some KC barbecue! And who knew I’d have such an affinity for Indian Cuisine?! It’s my most favorite comfort food ever!

A friend came to visit in February.

She’s a quilter who had never been to Missouri, so naturally I took her to Missouri Star Quilt Co in Hamilton, where she shopped ’til she almost dropped! We also visited Angela Walter’s shop here in Liberty, Quilting is My Therapy .

My friend actually worked for Hallmark for many years in AZ so I took her to the Hallmark Visitors Center AND we toured the Arabia Steamboat Museum. We had a grand time.

On the day she left, I got another visitor. A semi-permanent one. My youngest son Joshua.

He’s been with me ever since. He’s working (more in the last 3 mos than he has in the last 3 years! Praise God!) and is enjoying living in the Midwest.

And speaking of living in the Midwest, I bought a house! The one I fell in love with at first sight back in August.

Here are a few more pics of the unique beauty that is now our home.

And look at the new sewing space in the basement! There’s even an electric fireplace! I had to decorate my design wall with some orphan blocks to liven it up until I can get going on a project which hopefully will be soon!

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed the tour.

And Thank You Lord for allowing me to be the steward of such a lovely abode.

A Thread for Life

let us draw near to God with a sincere heart and with the full assurance that faith brings, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for He who promised is faithful. Hebrews 10:22-23 HCSB
