Project 365 - January 3, 2010

Project 365 button designed by http://richgift.blogspot.com

We're beginning a New Year with Project 365 hosted by Sara. Join us won't you?
I'm starting out by coming up three days short on pictures this week.

Monday - Word Girl spent most of the day sewing with the sewing machine she got for Christmas. This is a wall pocket that she made. Can you tell she's excited? I do believe she enjoys sewing. (This picture was actually taken on Tuesday but the sewing was done on Monday.)

Tuesday - In the picture it looks like it's raining but that is actually snow. You can see it accumulating a little on the grass. It was a bit slushy and didn't stick for long. Word Girl was only too happy to check my mail for me.

Wednesday - The girls spent the night and decorated little boxes. I wasn't feeling very well so the poor little things endured a grumpy grandma.

Thursday - My book arrived today. I'm joining Yolanda at Joy Comes In The Morning in a study on the Names of God. I've been wanting to do a study on the Names of God for a while now so I jumped on it when Yolanda mentioned that she was doing this. We are just about to start so there's still time to join us.

If you would like to join us in this study, the book is available at ChristianBooks.com. It was on sale when I posted this. My book arrived only 3 days after I ordered it even though I selected the least expensive shipping method. And if you use the search box below to order it, you will be helping me as well.



Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy your week!

We've been studying some of the names of God at church recently.

Great photos....love the Word Girl enjoying getting the mail - and WOW does she have a talent for sewing! That looks awesome! Sorry you weren't feeling well... I hope you are feeling better now!

My ADHD Me said...

Monday- Good Job Word Girl...she can out-sew me!

Tuesday-A great thing about the south. A flurry or two is still something to get excited about!!

Wednesday- They look happy to me. Somehow I think when you're grumpy, you're still nicer than most!

Have a great day!....(night)

How creative are those girls - very impressed. We had the rain/snow this week too. Wish it would pick one or the other.
Blessings on your week!

Yolanda said...


How cool! I love how sweet and creative you are towards those three gorgeous grand-daughters. They will always remember the time and energy you invested in them. What a legacy you are leaving!!!!

You are incredibly special and amazing to my heart.

Love YOU,

Tracy said...

Sweet photos! I love the concept of a photo of a day (although I have to say more often than not my days wouldn't be overly exciting!) Maybe when I have precious grandaughters... = ) I have so many incredible memories of time spent with my Grandmas, particularly when we were creating things together. Hope you're
feeling better now.

sara said...

so fun seeing young girls liking to sew....it's becoming a lost art since they took it out of schools!

we never got the snow! yea!

That is a great study, you will LOVE it!!

Kim said...

Sure hope you're feeling better now!

Ahhh, I remember my first sewing machine. It was more toy than real but I did some fun little projects with it. I had just turned ten. When I was 16 mom gave me my first "real" machine. I've had a love/hate relationship with them ever since. lol

The Bible study looks fun. I really like Kay Arthur's material.

Have a great week!

adorable...know they were having fun

Kathy S. said...

Fun! I have a book by that author called, "The Peace and Power of Knowing God's Name"...it's a coffee table type. I will look forward to reading what you are learning!

I am with Tracy...prolly not that exciting here...but I can take a few shots if it ever is;D

Esthermay said...

A sewing machine!!!! I love it. What an absolutely appropriate gift for a young woman. Very lucky girl!

Grumpy Grandma – still good!

...and oH! If there were only more hours in the week. I want to do this Bible Study too! I so appreciate Kay Arthur – I share her heart for studying GOD’s WORD – she has been such an inspiration to me and I aspire to exude that same level of JOY as she does when I speak and teach.

Be blessed in your study!

If Word Girl can maintain her enthusiasm for sewing, she will find herself making her own clothes before too long, and there are marvelous benefits to that! Love the boxes! Simple and fun, and helps the grumpies be not as grumpy as they could be.

I'm going to join a new Bible study group this year, so I'm excited to get back into the Word with a group. Also will begin blogging again on "In Between Time." I'll be doing a tour of the O.T. prophets....for as long as it takes!

Looking forward to the writing as well as plugging in to your posts this year.

You, grumpy? I doubt it!

Hey, we have plenty of snow in Michigan, and it isn't slushy. Feel free to come with your grand daughters and play. Word Girl can get my mail, too, if she wants. *grin*

Hi Edie! Wanted to stop by and wish you a blessed New Year for 2010. The Kay Arthur book sounds like a great one. I've always wanted to learn about the names of God. Spring from princessandtheking.blogspot.com gave me a long list of names of God in the Bible when I was preparing for a lesson I am to give at church. She amazed me with her knowledge on the subject.

Love your pictures.

Neat idea Edie.

Happy New Year!

From the Heart said...

The photos are neat. Sorry you weren't feeling well. Hope and pray your better now.

I learned to sew when I was in Home Ec (which probably isn't taught anymore). I used to make bridal gowns for dolls and actually sold some. I also made some of my clothes. The only problem I had is the pattern had to fit me exactly right. I never learned how to improvise. I also made clothes for my girls when they were small.


LeeAnn@Encouragement Is Contagious said...


I left a comment for you under one of your scripture tags that I used today in my post. (and added your link on my post) I wasn't sure if you go back and read the comments under some of your earlier tags you made. Thank you.

I always admire your 'grandmothering'.
Always enjoy your comments on my blog. Yes, I am spoiled to have 'help', although I might add that it is not the norm. I guess grandma's are more into nourishing little ones.
Keep up the great work of eternal value!
What a power-laden Bible study!

sara said...

hey Edie, I notice that when you click on the P365 button it just takes you to my blog. Can we change it so that it takes the person here:

that is the post with the instructions on P365.

just let me know!

Jackie said...

Elizabeth said...

Hope you are feeling better... I just wanted to say Happy New Year and look forward to reading your blog as we go through Project 365
