A Whirlwind

 Well Fall is officially here and we are loving the cooler weather and being able to have the windows open.
We have been crazy busy getting Schelly(my sister-in-law) ready for her mission trip to Bangladesh through her school DBU. She was not able to find any appropriate clothing in her size so we had to make her 11 new outfits that would be appropriate for the Indian customs (veil and tunic down to shins). we sewed day and night for 4 days even had a machine give out on us but we got it all completed in time to wash it and treat it with bug repellent before she had to get it all packed. She is now back safely and very jet lagged she is having a hard time readjusting to our time zone and I have no clue how she is able to go to work and school. Schelly brought us all back some beautiful goodies see how pretty they are

I am continuing to sew making quilts out of all the scraps to sell and help pay back all that she had to borrow to make it possible th share the Gospel with those in another country I will post pictures of those quilts as I go.

With Fall also come Nutcracker! Izzy's class is angels, Jacobs class is gingerbread, Jacob and his cousin Ryorden are also party boys  whom help Fritz (Clara's brother) wreck havoc on stage and break the nutcracker. Nate and I have volunteered to be party parents and dance in the first scene which requires lots of practicing and an excuse to make a regency ball gown yay! Another project that I will be sharing with you all probably making one post with step by step pictures. For now I must go be supermom!
