How To Make Dish Cloths Made From A Drop Cloth...


This is an easy and inexpensive hand towel you can make;
 for yourself or as a gift for others!
I did both, because using a drop cloth allows you so much more fabric!

Firstly, I purchased a new drop cloth and washed and dried it!
This was the brand I bought from a local hardware store!
As you can see it is a very large size of material!
And is 100% Cotton
It is a very soft cotton and very sturdy.



After the Drop Cloth was washed and dried, I then began cutting out,
my hand towels, using a size I liked from a kitchen towel I had.

I cut so many out, I truly cannot remember how many I got from that one drop cloth.
One drop cloth I think was around ten dollars!

As you can see once they were ironed and hemmed each side,
 I sewed on a piece of fabric and,
added a bit of sturdy lace to them also!

I was able to use scrap material to embellish them and added bits of trim.

I did make these in an assembly line fashion as it made it go quite fast!
I also had a dear friend come over to make a few for herself and some gifts.
Everyone loved these hand towels as they were soft, sturdy absorbent!

Not to mention very pretty and unique and useful!

All I can say is if you need a lot of fabric for cheap for a craft idea or
a home project. Is to look into purchasing and using a drop cloth!

You can make reusable gift bags!
You can make curtains!
You can make dusting cloths!
You can make Burp Cloths!

There are many ideas out there, that require an inexpensive, and sturdy fabric!

Try this and I think you will be pleasantly surprised!

Blessings To You Dear Ones!

Beware Of Empty Conversations...

Light Upon Our Words, Living From Glory To Glory Blog...


Empty Conversations

I have been thinking a lot about the time I use every day in my
conversations. Now, that being said, what I am thinking is this.

Are my words in my conversations considered;
Shining sparkles of truth and joy?
Is what I am hearing from others considered worth repeating?

There are many people who talk incessantly and never say anything worth repeating.

We need to ask ourselves if our conversations are built on
Empty, idle words, not even worth remembering.

We all know of at least one person that just talks and talks!

But when you walk away or hang up the phone;
Do you feel comforted?
Do you feel like a word of encouragement had been given?
Can you repeat what you have heard?
Was the conversation considered noble or good?

Life is short and the days are even shorter;
So may we all be mindful of our conversations!

We all laugh over the quote
Blah, Blah, Blah!

But truly are we doing the same thing?
Do we just talk to hear ourselves?

May our words be few,
 But chosen like a beautiful ripe piece of fruit
Or flowers that smell heavenly!
If our words cannot equate to a bowl of luscious fruit!
Or make a lovely banquet of flowers.
Be still and ask the Lord for His Words!

Blessings To All Of You;
May This Letter Inspire You To Use Your Words Well!
For as always I desire to live from Glory To Glory

Hugs, Roxy

What Kind Of Mother in Law Are You? What Kind Of Daughter in Law Are You?

What Kind Of Mother In Law Are You, Living From Glory To Glory Blog...

What kind of Mother in law did you have?

I feel very strongly that so many women have missed out;
On one of the most valuable relationships!

Why do these relationships from both the son in laws or daughters,
Turn so sour and hateful anymore!

To allow the enemy to rob us of another member into our families;
from either the parent or child that has gotten married!
This is so rampant anymore!
I have heard so many young ladies say that their Mother in laws 
are just so mean and terrible to them!
Undermining them, and their child's choice of a spouse.
Then the child is torn between loyalty to one's wife or mother or father.
We are told to leave and cleave, but not to cut one's heart out!

Does this all stem from our selfish, controlling motives?
Like a two year old that will not share!

Now, grant you there are a few of these relationship's that looked
good and healthy, but once they married, Then the wolf appeared!

So many have identity crisis, and have come from broken homes!
Many look upon the Mother or Father as old fashion!
They are afraid we will take some of their children's affection away!

Controlling and causing an uproar at every opportunity!

The pain and sorrow that these individuals have cost a God fearing mama's heart!

It's shameful...

Let me remind you of even in the book of Ruth;
She told her friends that her daughter in law was worth more 
then seven sons!!

We must stop this horrible cycle;
So may we all encourage others to look at their in laws and also
the sons and daughters, we give away to their chosen spouse differently!

Look, no one is perfect and no one is going to look or do the things
you do or even enjoy, we all have been raised differently.

If you do not, at least for yourself to decide and with the Lords help;
To be the best Mother In Law you can possible be...

Love is a choice!
Do you always have to be right?

I was given a little plague from my Mother In Law
and it had the sweetest poem written on it!
I loved my Mother in law so very much, I wanted her around!
She loved me and taught me many good things!

Now, My daughter in law has been given that same plaque!

It truly breaks my heart for all the confusion and hurt that
comes from this kind of behavior!

If I can, I will try to always lead someone to reconcile the best they can;
But, If there is none to have, stop calling or trying!
Just Pray And Keep Away
Leave them alone, and just maybe they will come to their senses!

Always learning...
Hugs, Roxy


Here is a picture of the poem that was given to me almost 40 years ago!
I still miss my Mother in law...

The Goodness Of Honey...


Honey, Living From Glory To Glory..

If you are looking for all the values on honey;
This is not what this post is about!

I just feel that honey is so rich and is made by little bee's
That work so very hard to produce a rich amber sweetness!
Liquid Gold...


Honey Jars, Living From Glory To Glory Blog...

Honey comb you can chew with the wax in it (yummy)
Royal jelly for strength and endurance!
A teaspoon in a cup of warm tea or coffee.
A teaspoon taken for a scratchy throat!

But, oh on a biscuit or cornbread!!
Now, were talking.

And it looks so satisfing sitting on your counter!

Buying honey from a local source is the best for your family!
Have you ever tried Bee Pollen?
I love that stuff...




Honey Bee, Living From Glory To Glory Blog...


Hello Little Bee
Are you afraid of Bees?


A Field Of Clover, Living From Glory To Glory Blog...

Every different flower makes a very unique tasting honey!

With all these things in mind, I think you might want to have some
beautiful liquid gold on hand!
Enjoy The Little Things
HONEY

Blessings From Above, Right Here On Earth,
Sweetly, Roxy
