"She looketh well to the ways of her household..."

Okay:-) As oppose to cluttering lists and mail boxes I'm posting these things I have for sale here and if interested I will be happy to answer any questions at all:-) I'm posting my woodstove also, in hopes that someone in the TN/AL area may want one:-D This post and these pics will either be altered or deleted as things hopefully sell:-)

Here are some headcovering and clothing patterns I have , all except the Hiding place patterns are uncut and unused ,I am asking $5ppd for each, if you'd like close up pictures of the veiling patterns, just email and I'll be happy to send them...from Friends patterns I have:"Heart Shaped Covering", "Traditional Headcovering" ,"Jewel Headcovering" , "3 piece Ohio Dress, size L", "Contemporary Mennonite Dress size P/S" and "men's zipper front pants size 38"... From "The Hiding Place" , "Leah hanging veil","Lydia hanging veil", "Elizabeth hanging veil", "Abigail hanging veil" , "Mary hanging veil" and "Tabitha hanging veil"... other patterns are : Hanging, Flowing, Charity,Gathered Bonnet, Round Chapel, and Missionary... Here's my woodstove:-) I hate to part with it but must:-/ Although it IS an antique, it works ,heated our home and cooked our food for quite awhile. It does though need some refurbishing..If you want more info about the stove just let me know:-) It's in our outbuilding and you would need to be quite strong (you and a couple more like you:-). My husband and I moved this with a moving dolly by ourselves though, so it's possible. We are asking $750 or best offer. We'll entertain all offers though.:-)

This is a childs mesh covering with cute! :-) I'm asking $10ppd

Shannon's hair is HUGE under this but I'd say it's a med/large ...asking $10ppd

This seems like a large to me...$30 ppd
This one is a small $30ppd
This one is a sm/med $30ppd

This is an amish maternity/nursing dress, with detachable bodice and apron (pinned). I would say since it's so adjustable it would fit anywhere between a size 6 and a 14/16 depending.. Asking $25ppd for it.

Here are the nursing slits.....and the waist is pinned to account for a growing belly:-)

This dress is a girls dress ,handmade by Ruby Roth for my daughter when she was 11. I would say it's about a size 12..asking 20ppd

This green silky dress is a cape dress with detachable bodice and apron , it also comes with this opaque covering (dear daughter here has a GIANT amount of hair under it so if your bun is less than 20lbs,lol, it'll fit closer on you:-)..I'd say it's probably anywhere between an 8 and 12 but you know how hand made it...I'm asking 35ppd.

"Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies. The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil. She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life. She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands. She is like the merchants' ships; she bringeth her food from afar. She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens. She considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard. She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms. She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night. She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff. She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy. She is not afraid of the snow for her household: for all her household are clothed with scarlet. She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple. Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land. She maketh fine linen, and selleth it; and delivereth girdles unto the merchant. Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come. She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness. She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness. Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her. Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all. Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised. Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates." Proverbs 31:10-31

I am not sure how I ended up here on your blog as I tend to rabbit-trail entirely too much for my own good...
but I have enjoyed the visit here.
I love your cookstove! Were you able to sell it? It's just what we have been looking for.
Seems we are "neighbors" of sorts -- we live in north Mississippi :o)

God Bless,

Hi, I am interested in several of your covering patterns. I do not know how to email you to ask about them. How do I get in touch with you? I am not a blogger, I found your blog looking for patterns from The "Hiding" Place. I am a little unsure about putting my email at the end of this, so could you direct me in how to communicate with you. Thank you.
