Love and Lollibags

I love this gray chevron, especially with the pink flower.  I think that is the extent of color choices for chevron.  The gray and yellow are my favorites.

I bought this vintage floral fabric in Oregon.  I love it.  Actually I bought it from a lady who is very dear to me.  She became like a mom.  She now has liver cancer and is having surgery Wednesday to remove part of her liver.  Thank you for any prayers you send out,  I appreciate it.  Recently she gave her life to Jesus Christ, I am so grateful and amazed by God's mercy!

Today I was reading in Romans about Love.

Romans 12:9-21

Love must be sincere.  Hate what is evil;  cling to what is good.  Be devoted to one another in brotherly love.  Honor one another above yourselves.  Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord.
Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.  Share with God's people who are in need.  Practice hospitality.
Bless those who persecute you;  bless and do not curse.  Rejoice with those who rejoice;  mourn with those who mourn.  Live in harmony with one another.  Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position.  Do not be conceited.
Do not repay anyone evil for evil.  Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone.  Do not take revenge, my friends, but leave room for God's wrath, for it is written:  "It is mine to avenge;  I will repay," says the Lord.  On the contrary:  "If your enemy is hungry, feed him;  if he is thirsty, give him something to drink.  In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head."
Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

Well I have a ways to go, how about you?  I'll start with being joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.  And let me clarify, it won't be me, only God can do those things in me. 

Enjoy the rest of May, summer is almost here!!

New Lollibags~Chevron

Well I have long admired Chevron and finally ordered a bunch of Chevron fabric.  My yellow Chevron Lollibags are going quickly, so I just ordered even more.  Here are some of my latest bags.

This is Jessica Swift fabric in Preeti.  Isn't it cute?  Remember I am putting her wallpaper in my 1/2 bath too.  I think I have finally made a decision on which one.  More on that later. 

The yellow is my favorite.  I just made Lauren a bag like this only smaller.  The pink flower is vintage polyester.

We are coming up on a year in Minnesota.  I think I am finally liking it here.  Of course I am so grateful to God for the move and all it entailed and for God providing for us.  But I was just hanging on to Oregon for some reason.  BUT, I just love being able to call up my friend and sister and be able to go to coffee or shopping.  I really appreciate my kids having their Grandpa.

So speaking of Oregon.  I am going out for a quick weekend in June.  It is both happy and sad.  My close friend, who has been like a mom to me, has liver cancer.  I'm really excited to see her.  And of course my friends and the farm.  It will be so wierd seeing the farm!!!

You know how when you go through a huge life change like an out of state move, or your mom dies... after a certian amount of time you begin to question if you really ever did live in that other state or you really did have a mom?  I know wierd, but those of you who have experienced it...KNOW what I'm saying.  So anyway, kinda fun I get to go back to what I still feel like is my home ~ Oregon :)

Do you have any BIG plans for summer?  Or not so big plans?
