Fun Things I Have Been Stitching This Week

Hello Fall and Get Ready for Thanksgiving and Christmas.
 Hello Fall ****Battery Operated**** Tea Light Cover
I am loving making these Tea Light Covers. All tea light covers are made with patterns from Embroidery Garden. 
They look so pretty on the sink in the bathroom. It is a wonderful night light for the bathroom or guest bedroom of your home.
The Pilgrim Lady and Man plus the leaf , turkey and Give Thanks makes a nice decoration for the bathroom or the Thanksgiving Buffet. Oh yes, why not add the apple, pumpkin and scarecrow.
 Without the tea lights.
I am starting to get in the Christmas mode as I am sewing for a Christmas Craft Show in November.
If you look close you can see the light. It is sooooo hard to photo the light and get it to look as pretty as it naturally does.
I love the little Penguin and Snowman. That was our house several winters ago.
 So cute in the bathroom or on a buffet.
 I finally got the Baby Boy Tea Light Covers finished.
 These will make a wonderful decoration for a baby’s room or baby shower.
 Sweet Baby Boy
 Baby Girl, yes the baby is the same.

Extreme Home Makeover God’s Edition

We spent the week-end at a family retreat.

The Theme was 
Extreme Home Makeover-God’s Edition.
John 14:23(NASB)
23 Jesus answered and said to him, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our abode with him.
When one starts a Home Makeover you often find that you get one thing fixed and another thing needs to be fixed. Some times one needs to tear everything down to the ground. One may have to change the ground too.
We have to have the right foundation.
1 Corinthians 3:11 (NASB)
11 For no man can lay a foundation other than the one which is laid, which is Jesus Christ.
We have to choose the strong foundation.
Matthew 7:24-27  (NASB)
The Two Foundations
24 “Therefore everyone who hears these words of Mine and acts on them, may be compared to a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25 And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and slammed against that house; and yet it did not fall, for it had been founded on the rock.26 Everyone who hears these words of Mine and does not act on them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. 27 The rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and slammed against that house; and it fell—and great was its fall.”
We have to build strong exterior walls based on God’s principals and not the world’s way of thinking.
Exterior Walls have to be torn down. We have to change the way our families look and react  to the world.
1 Corinthians 15:33 (NASB)
33 Do not be deceived: “Bad company corrupts good morals.”
Ephesians 5:16 (NASB)
16 making the most of your time, because the days are evil. 
Interior Walls have to be torn down by God. 
He is the only one that knows which ones can be removed and the home still stand firmly.
Ephesians 2:14 (NASB)
14 For He Himself is our peace, who made both groups into one and broke down the barrier of the dividing wall,
Mark 3:25 (NASB)
25 If a house is divided against itself, that house will not be able to stand.
God is the only One who can heal the family relationships.
Ephesians 5:33 
(NASB)
33 Nevertheless, each individual among you also is to love his own wife even as himself, and the wife must see to it that she respects her husband.
Ephesians 6:1-4 (NASB)
Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. 
Honor your father and mother (which is the first commandment with a promise), so that it may be well with you, and that you may live long on the earth.  Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.
The Extreme Home Makeover-God’s Edition is about changing the things  our families participates in. 
We live in the world but we are not of this world.
Romans 12:2 (NASB)
And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.
It was about making the changes in our families lives that are going to lead them to heaven.
Daniel 12:3 (NASB)
Those who have insight will shine brightly like the brightness of the expanse of heaven, and those who lead the many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever.
If you have ever tried to do a  Home Makeover, you know how hard it can be.

Microwave Cleaning Tutorial

Am I the only one who ever has a dirty microwave?
It seems that no matter how hard I try to keep the microwave clean, it always get nasty splatters.
Not to worry!!!
Get the trusty vinegar and a medium size bowl.
Fill the bowl about 3/4 full with hot water.

Add about a 1/2 to 1 cup of vinegar.
Put the bowl of water and vinegar in the microwave.

I start with about 2 minutes on high power.
If the splatters are still baked on hard I 
go another minute at a time until they are soft.
When I am finished with the vinegar water, I just add
it to my dish water to add extra cleaning power.
Wipe every nook and cranny. Rinse your rag in the
vinegar water and wipe away.
Do not forget any spot.
The splatters will wipe off as if they are fresh.
Do not forget the door.
I like to wipe with a soft towel to get the excess moisture 
and any left over spots I might have missed.
I washed the glass turn table with dish soap
and scrubbed it real well in the sink.
Just wipe it nice and dry.
Put everything back in the microwave and you are ready to use it again.
On second thought, let’s not use it, let’s keep it nice and clean.
Enjoy!!!
Thanks so much for coming. 
Feel free to leave a comment.
Blessings

How Shall They Hear?

 All Photos are copyrighted by Shelia Holmes 2012
Romans 10: 14-15
How then will they call on Him in whom they have not believed?
How will they believe in Him whom they have not heard?
And how will they hear without a preacher?
How will they preach unless they are sent? Just as it is written,
“HOW BEAUTIFUL ARE THE FEET OF THOSE WHO BRING GOOD NEWS OF GOOD THINGS!
 All Photos are copyrighted by Shelia Holmes 2012
Romans 10:17 
So faith comes from hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ.
Acts 19:5
And when they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.
