Mail Order Mistletoe Brides

Mail Order Mistletoe Brides

This is an historial two novels in one by Jillian Hart and Janet
Tronstad. It's two wonderful tails about two women Mercy Jacobs and Maeve Flanagan who want new beginnings, hoping for love and a better life than what they and their children have left behind them. A change tostart over and make it right this time.

 They travel far from their home towns on the east coast, traveling
through cold, snow, mountains and the unknow to total strangers hoping and praying that they have not made a mistake coming so far.

 This takes guts and lots of prayers as they reach their new homes,
Mercy to Cole Matheson and his daughter Amelia. Can Mercy win the love of his daughter, can she win Cole's love instead of a business like arrangement?

Can Cole love her son? Maeve Flanagan answered an ad for a cook and a marriage in name only. Can she win Noah Miller love's and will he love her daughter? 

 These are two really good books in one, I gave it 5 stars.

Gift Bags


Gift Bags by N. Banks
Need an inexpensive, but personalized gift bag? 
Here is a real easy one to do and takes about 2 hours
from start to finish. You will need:

1 Green bag from Walgreen's or any other christmas color bag
Green thread to match bag
4 5x7 pieces of white material   
2 5x7 pieces of iron on stabilizer
2 Christmas designs, I used Christmas Bears by Laura (http://www.designsbysick.com/details/bearychristmas)

Thread for designs,

1.     Take out the card board base in the bag, lay it aside for now
and cut bag on fold lines (see below) so that you have a front and back.

2.     Iron the stabilizer to 2 pieces of the white material.

3.     Stack 1 piece of white material and the one with the stabilizer together and sew over the Walgreens logo on the front of bag with a satin stitch, repeat for the back of the bag.

                                                                               



 
4.     Center and hoop the front of the bag with the white material in center.  Set the Christmas design off a bit to the left so that you have room to add the person's name the bag is for. Make sure the bags handle and sides are out of the way before you start to sew.

5.     Place your hooped peice on your machine and stitch your design out.
         
6.     Using your machines fonts, stitch on the front the person's
name you are making  the bag for. This bag is for my granddaughter who loves bears.

Repeat for the back, but leave the name off.     At this point you can add more designs to the front or back of the bag, just use tear a way stabilizer and sew any that you want.

Pin the right sides together, and sew using a ¼ inch seam allowance.

Then turn bag right side out and stitch the seam again. Place cardboard base back in bag and you are done.    

I have also made these for Halloween bags for my grandkids, again using designs from http://www.designsbysick.com/.

Under A Blackberry Moon

Under A Blackberry Moon by Serena B Miller

            I won this book in a contest from Goodreads, first time I have won anything like it. The book is so good I've read it twice now. And that's saying a lot. Most of the time if I want to read it again, I put in on a shelf in my library and read many years later.
            Moonsong is a beautiful Indian woman, that to save her life and the life of her new born infant went though many awful hardships including living with a drunken husband that was killed, giving birth alone, going to a village of white men where she and her baby could be killed, living in the forest after her ship blew up, running from hungry wolves, just to name of few.
            She father deserted she as a child, now she has to learn to trust a white man name Skypilot, and he has to learn in live in a world that meets some where high in the Hurland Mountains.  A beautiful moving love story that will surprise you, make you laugh and cry. You will want to read it again and again. I gave it 5 stars.
