Hearts for Home 1/25/11

     I have decided to join in the weekly "Hearts for Home" posting with the lovely ladies who read Cherished Hearts at Home. Here is the link. Its a delightful blog that I read for inspiration in my day to day housekeeping. Its nice to find ladies who share my passion for being a housewife! So here is my list of 5 or 6 things I would like to do this week, to help me keep focused on making a nice home.
     1. I would like to make sure I keep on top of washing my Hubby's warm clothes. It has been so cold out, and I want to make sure he has plenty of clean warm clothes to work in. I know laundry is an everyday chore, but I do try to do HIS clothes first, that way I know they are done and ready.
     2, I'm going to make a batch of cookies for tonight's Ladies Sewing Circle that I go to every Tuesday. I get together with some of the nice ladies from church and we all work together to make quilts for children with cancer. I have been wanting a way to get together with other women and share my love of crafting, so this group is such a blessing.
     3. I need to make a curtain for the long table/shelf I have in my kitchen. We got this table used and fixed it up by spray painting and decoupage. I wanted it it for extra storage, as our apartments kitchen has very little in the way of counters and cupboards. It looks very cute so far, but i don't like that the shelf underneath that holds my food processor and blender and cake pans is visible. Soooo, I'll make a curtain, pics will be coming soon:)
     4. I have a half knitted cushion cover that I should probably finish. I am so bad, always starting projects and seeming to finish only about half of them. So I guess that leads to,,,,
     5. Finish up the odds and ends of knitting and sewing projects that are lingering around the place. Oh Boy,,, this may take more than a week,,,


  1. May you have a truly blessed week as you focus on your homemaking projects. ~Alana~

  2. You have a great list.
    I hope the cold weather eases up so your washing dries for you.
    Sewing a curtain for the shelf sounds like fun and very practical too :-)
    Have a blessed week in Christ..Trish

  3. Thank you ladies, thank you for visiting my blog:)
