Our busy life with an amazing veterinarian and cattleman, a gardening, quilting and history loving wife and mother, a creative perfectionist violinist, a spunky and kind epileptic princess, a sweet yet wild little man, and the most mellow and happy babe, on a joyful 1/2 acre living and loving in a beautiful mountain valley.

Civil War sewing wish list
I can't remember where I got this picture, and I apologize, I should be better about that.
But I want to make a sheer dress very soon!
This is Lisa, from the northwest, and I adore her ensemble.
She does a little pre-1860s impression, but I still adore it.
I love her son's clothing as well. I need to make Emmitt something similar for this next spring and summer.
I love all of these dresses. I want to make them all!
The red cape is wonderful too!
This little gal's dress is so sweet. I love her boots as well. I love that she has long sleeves
coming out from under the dress bodice. Something you don't see very often.
I need to make another dress for Kendal this summer.
LOVE LOVE LOVE this hair!
Sarah Jane made this paletot. I love love love it.
This cold weather makes me want to make one too!
I really do NEED one!
This medallion quilt was made in the 1830s. I love love love it. I want to make
one like it as well! The scrappiness of it draws me to it. I can only imagine what those fabric scraps came from - neighbors, old dresses, sisters, a trip into town and splurging on a yard of chintz, husband's old shirts, maybe something from mom. There are endless sentimental possibilities.
These are a few of the things I would sew up tomorrow if I had the time.
I do need to make the time for a few of the necessary projects.
