Fabric, Flowers and Fruitage


Welcome to my blog!  My name is Kathy Jackson and I’m a Southern Belle from Alabama.  I’m the proud mother of 3 wonderful young adults; a teacher, a nurse, and a soon-to-be Senior in High School.  My wonderful husband of 33 years is Peter, fondly known as the ‘Mission Impossible’ man.  He’s never met a challenge he didn’t like!! 

My desire for this blog, as I hope in all my life, is to bring glory to God Almighty, Maker of Heaven and Earth, and to His only-begotten Son, Jesus Christ.  The old hymn says it better than I could:

Sing, oh sing, of my Redeemer,

With his blood, He purchased me.

On the cross, He sealed my pardon,

Paid the debt, and set me free.

I have been blessed in SO many ways; not the least of which is a love of flowers and fabric!!  I’ve been sewing for at least 40 years, yet I find that there is still so much I want to learn, and to do!  I’m very inspired by the Modern Quilt movement.  These new designers are bringing life into an ancient art, and that truly excites me! I hope I’m not too old to jump on the bandwagon!!

In recent years I began working with flowers, and have been fortunate to put my talents to use for friends’ weddings, showers, prom corsages, etc.  Our God is a God of beauty, and the variety of flowers He created proves it!!  In this blog I hope to share some tips and ideas for using flowers in your home, in ways that WON’T break your budget!

In addition, I hope to share with you an insight or two that I have learned from Scripture along life’s journey.  Paul the apostle wrote to the church in Rome:

For I long to see you, that I may impart to you some spiritual gift to strengthen you— that is, that we may be mutually encouraged by each other’s faith, both yours and mine. – Romans 1:11-12

Now, let me be the first to say, I’m no Paul!!  But I will share some of what God has been teaching me, and I hope you will feel free to leave your comments, so that I may learn from you.  In this way we will be “mutually encouraged by each other’s faith”!

The blogging world is a new adventure for me, so I ask for your patience as I figure it all out!  In the meantime, enjoy!!
