Safe weed killer

I came across this simple recipe recently. It works amazing and no poisons that could hurt kiddos or critters.
I've used this here and there for a couple weeks now and wanted to share. Great for grass and weeds coming up  through gravel, pathways, etc.

Here's the ingredients...

For every 1/2 gallon of apple cider vinegar,
 add 1/4 cup salt and 1 teaspoon Dawn. 

I put mine in a 1 gallon Hudson sprayer.

In 24 hours or less you go from this

To this

Easy peasy!

Westerning Women Quilt Blocks

I've started on a little journey this year with Barbara Brackman's WesterningWomen monthly quilt blocks!

I've taken quickie pics after finishing #5 just now...
Here are the quilt blocks I've done so far:

#1 Independence Square

#2 Indian Territory

#3 Sweet Gum Leaf

#4 Lone Elm

#5 The Platte River


I'm really enjoying doing these and excited to see how it might turn out as a big 'ol finished quilt someday.  In the meantime, I'm learning and tweaking and loving the stories and back grounds she provides. Thanks Barbara!

My morning devotion


  Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times and in every way. The Lord be with all of you.

2 Thessalonians 3:16


That hits home whatever you are going through! 

Have a blessed day my friends

Blessings and May Early Works ~

It's time for an Early Works update already! April has flown by and sometimes I feel more behind than ever. 

As I was doing my morning devotions, I'm always struck by how they are spot on. Today spoke about when your basic needs are lacking...time, energy, money, etc. To consider yourself blessed. 
  Some may say, WHAT!
 However, it goes on to say.... when you begin a day with inadequate resources, you must concentrate your efforts on the present moment. This is where you are meant to live - in the present; it is the place where I always await you. Awareness of your inadequacy is a rich blessing, training you to rely wholeheartedly on Me. My Power is made perfect in weakness.

But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness."
2 Corinthians 12:9 

As for Early Works, I'm offering a little wood box for some of your small sewies, buttons, and keepsakes...and I've got a few goodies tucked inside to get ya started. Goes live tonight!


Blessings my friends

Philippians 4:13

One of my favorite verses. 
These ten little words say so much!
And I know I CAN do ALL things...only through CHRIST and what His perfect will is for me...and everything I do through Him.....

~ Have a blessed day my friends ~
