In His grace, God has given us different gifts for doing certain things well... And if you have a gift for showing kindness to others, do it gladly.Romans 12:6-8

Doings Down South ...

Hi Y'All!  

I feel I can fully embrace my use of "y'all" and "sweetie" now that I officially call the South my home ... 
 ... who knew I had a touch of the southern gal living in my soul??

Job search is continuing, as is the wait for my daughters to join me, but Faith and Hope continue to live strongly in me ...
I appreciate each and every prayer made on my behalf!

I had the pleasure of meeting Arlene Blackburn, owner of Delta Patchworkthis past weekend.  I was able to enjoy a bit of fabric therapy by means of visiting Arlene's internet quilt shop that she occasionally opens for her local customers. The shop is neat and clean with lots to choose from ... just as she has in her online store!  And those she had helping customers ... so wonderfully kind and helpful!

Sweet, sweet lady and a true representative of kindness towards others.  I hope to return often, even if only online until she has another Delta Patchwork Warehouse day for her local customers.  Be sure to visit her online shop and I know she's on Facebook too ... link here. 

Found the above fabrics on the marked down shelf ...

I picked up a recent magazine for inspiration along with some materials I needed for current projects I've got in the works ...  
And the little birdie you see above ....

Perfect zipper pull for the bag I made recently!

Well ... I will get to work now on those previously mentioned projects so I have more to share in the near future.  Thank you for visiting!

Y'all come back now, ya' hear?
(sorry ... couldn't help myself... heeheehee)


  1. It sounds like you are getting settled in there. Glad there is a little fabric therapy included. Love the little birdie.

  2. You've got the language down pat! :) blessings, marlene

  3. Sounds like you are fitting right in. It just sounds so friendly to say y'all. Maybe that's the yeehaw in me.

  4. Hi!!!! So happy for you!!!!! I gotta little YeeHaw in me too!!!! Ok!!!! A lot!!!!

  5. love the cat print, in fact I love it all...very colourful great taste there wendy...looking forward to what you will make with it

  6. I'm glad you're getting the language down so you'll fit right the sound of "y'all!" Sweet looking fabric finds!

  7. True Southern folks embrace anyone willing to learn the language, eat the food, walk the walk, and talk the talk! I moved South, 37 yrs. ago and I soon learned the following tips: every soft drink is not "pop" or "soda" but rather a "Coke" regardless of brand, you MUST wave or hold up your index finger to everyone who passes you while driving, you will know the life story of the cashier at Wal-Mart before you finish swiping your card, it will take an extra 30 minutes for ANY grocery shopping trip because everyone you know and some you don't will want to "chat", don't ever eat instant grits and think that is true
    southern fare (yuck), when buying a baby shower gift make sure it is monogrammed IF you know the future child's name and if not make certain you tell the future mother you have arranged with the store to have the item monogrammed after the baby is born (ask me how I know this?) and Most of All, Take ANY AND ALL Tornado watches and/or warnings very seriously!!!
    Welcome to the South!! Before you know it, you'll wake up one day and realize you're one of us!!
