Hannah made her first sale

Hannah made her first sale today and got an order for a specially dyed shirt.  I'm so proud of her.  I made a little dress and she dyed it a special color combination and they bought that too.  I think it will take off once she gets her name out there.

Hey look I can type on my blog again.  Yippie

So little posting

I'm sorry for lack of posting.  I can't post any writing other than captions on photos and its been that way for a couple of months.  It's very discouraging as I don't know how to fix it.

Fiber Arts

This is the little sundress I made of muslin fabric.  Hannah died it after I made the outfit instead of dying the fabric.  I like doing it this way better for this application because when she gets done with the dying all I have to do is iron it and my part is done.
Since Hannah is getting into tie dying we decided to just make it part of her school.  We put together a class where she will be doing her tie dying as well as learning to track inventory, order supplies, market, advertise and package her product.  A fun entrepreneur class.

Its a crow

It is a Crow

An 80 year old man was sitting on the sofa in his house along with his 45 years old highly educated son. Suddenly a crow perched on their window.


The Father asked his Son, "What is this?"

The Son replied "It is a crow".

After a few minutes, the Father asked his Son the 2nd time, "What is this?"

The Son said "Father, I have just now told you "It's a crow".

After a little while, the old Father again asked his Son the 3rd time, "What is this?"

At this time some expression of irritation was felt in the Son's tone when he said to his Father with a rebuff. "It's a crow, a crow".

A little after, the Father again asked his Son t he 4th time, "What is


This time the Son shouted at his Father, "Why do you keep asking me the same question again and again, although I have told you so many times 'IT IS A CROW'. Are you not able to understand this?"

A little later the Father went to his room and came back with an old

tattered diary, which he had maintained since his Son was born. On opening a page, he asked his Son to read that page. When the son read it, the following words were written in the diary :-

"Today my little son aged three was sitting with me on the sofa, when a crow was sitting on the window. My Son asked me 23 times what it was, and I replied to him all 23 times that it was a Crow. I hugged him lovingly each time he asked me the same question again and again for 23 times. I did not at all feel irritated I rather felt affection for my innocent child".

While the little child asked him 23 times "What is this", the Father had felt no irritation in replying to the same question all 23 times and when today the Father asked his Son the same question just 4 times, the Son felt irritated and annoyed.


If your parents attain old age, do not repulse them or look at them as a burden, but speak to them a gracious word, be cool, obedient, humble and kind to them. Be considerate to your parents.From today say this aloud, "I want to see my parents happy forever. They have cared for me ever since I was a little child. They have always showered their selfless love on me.

They crossed all mountains and valleys without seeing the storm and heat to make me a person presentable in the society today".

Say a prayer to God, "I will serve my old parents in the best way. I will say all good and kind words to my dear parents, no matter how they behave.

More tie dye

These are some of Hannah's latest tie dyed shirts.  This morning I made a little sun dress out of muslin fabric and she is going to tie dye it.  Before I had her tie dye the fabric first and then I made the dresses.  I'm going to see which way I like best.
