And the winner is....


I wish I could make a set of pattern weights for each of you who commented on my birthday giveaway. I've enjoyed visiting all--yes, all--your blogs and catching a glimpse into your lives.

Alisa, from
Making More with Less, is the winner of the pattern weights. Visit Alisa's blog that she shares with her sister Suzanne to see all the pretty things they make. Alisa, I really like the red "Miss Mary" dress that you sewed for your daughter last month.

Email your address to me and I'll pop these pattern weights in the mail.

Happy Sewing,

And just because I have a hard time writing a post without a picture, here is one of my family (missing just one daughter) taken on Easter Sunday by a very talented young lady, Tyna. I love the bright colors--this picture reminds me of spring and colored eggs. :)


  1. What a lovely family picture Ruth!!

    Love, Heather

  2. You have a beautiful family.

  3. Yay! I'm happy for Alisa! Congrats!

  4. Wow! I won something! Thanks so much.

    Your family photo is beautiful. So if I'm counting correctly you have 8 children. Suzanne and I are from a family of 10 as well (there are way more of us now...)

    I will email you.

  5. Alisa,
    Actually, my husband and I have 7 children. We have 2 grandchildren and a son-in-law who are in the picture. My grandson is close in age to my youngest daughter, and people often think they're brother and sister instead of aunt and nephew. :)

  6. What a beautiful family!

  7. You have such a lovely family! I enjoy your blog, so much. I am in awe of you and your mom's incredible, God-given talent! I can't sew a straight line, but I have such an appreciation for creativity. Thank you for sharing your creations. God bless you all!
