Welcome to the Goodwife's blog! Here I write about our lives and the journey God is taking us on. It's a wild and wonderful ride, full of happiness and the occasional heartbreak, but the one constant is our love for Jesus Christ and our faith that God has a plan for us! We strive to submit to His will for our lives in all ways. We try to be good stewards of the land and animals God has blessed us with.

Such a Love Affair.......
My love affair with Steve continues to grow. I can't tell you how much I love sewing! It's such a great feeling to take that blank canvas of cloth and create something lasting. I love making clothes and then wearing them. It's fabulous!
I had to finish the straps different because they weren't long enough, but it works anyway and I really like it a lot! This picture doesn't do it justice.
This is what I did today. I whipped up this simple housedress.
You can't tell in the pictures, but the fabric is a navy with a tiny green check in it. Very pretty and I promise that in person it doesn't make me look pregnant! LOL! It's the first time I've done inset pockets and I'm thrilled with how they came out!
I LOVE it! It's so comfy and simple and pretty and I enjoy wearing it. I don't wear dresses or skirts that often, but I do feel like such a girl when I wear them which is a nice way to feel once in awhile!
This is a blouse I made a couple weeks ago. Soon to be Mrs. Neighbor came over and we were working on some sewing. She is a fantastic clothing designer but she doesn't know the basics of pattern reading. I'm glad to say that I'm teaching her what little I know. We have a lovely visit and talk about marriage and Faith and things. It's nice!
Anyway, just wanted to update you on what Steve and I have been up to!
