paper coterie about a month ago. It's one that you customize yourself. You drop your photos in and add quotes and sentiments that just speak to your heart. It's pretty and personal.

I've been having to remind myself to be nice....even when I haven't felt very nice.
The Great Gatsby for book club and I think my energy level is up enough that I can keep my eyes open long enough to knock that off. Have any of you read TGG before? This is my first time and I'll wait until I finish it to completely decide how I feel about it, but so far I'm feeling like empty extravagance seems quite fitting. Sometimes I wonder who decides what makes a book a classic.....Anyways, have a great start to your week! Hope it's full of sunshine and substantial blessings! (the photos all came from my instagram feed this week....)

fall fabric stack and added a couple of stash fabrics to make my new fall table runner. I cut all my strips 2 1/2" by 11" and then sewed them together. I added a 1/2" border to the outside. (The border is a clearance sheet that I cut up and used.) To finish it off I stitched in the ditch all the way around the outside and called it done!

Happy Friday! I'm linking up my Instagram pics with Jeannett! These are from the last 2 weeks...it's been busy! We've been visiting colleges and watching baseball games and knocking out some really good school work. Hope your weeks are going wonderfully!
Maggie got glasses. She noticed that her eyes were straining when she was in her college English class...good thing I took her, she's a bit near sighted.
Well....that's the run down of the last two weeks. I'll be back soon with some sewing and a peek at my new journal! Have a great weekend friends!

*wanting to see some changes and some glimmers of hope but knowing that if they don't come, if I can't see evidence of change.....that God is faithful. God is trustworthy. God is still in control.
That's where the struggle lies...allowing Him to be Lord and giving my agenda and my desires over to Him. In knowing that if nothing changes, that all is well. He is my source of strength. He is my mighty tower, my strong fortress. I'm spending time today reflecting on the Word that says "He is your constant source of stability." Isaiah 33:6 (NET) So thankful for that!
*hoping you know that He is more than enough. "He is your constant source of stability." "Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken, nor my covenant of peace be removed, says the LORD, who has compassion on you." Isaiah 54:10
