It SEEMED like a great idea....

Fab & very pregnant middle daughter had asked if I could watch the wee one for a few hours today....So youngest daughter and I headed out to the neighborhood petting farm with grand baby. Did I mention that it was 300 degrees today in Virginia!!!! Ok...maybe a slight exaggeration but not much...mid 90's.

With all the crazy weather we have been having this year....SNOW probably tomorrow!

Have a wonderful & blessed holiday with those you love. :)

Big Girl Quilt

My sweet girl is "almost" ready for the next step.

Months ago i had made a full size quilt like this for my bed. Daughter Lacey said that was just what she wanted for the babies room...so back to the sewing machine!

Emerson seems happy with the results...and of course Grandma LOVES that.

Happy a wonderful weekend!!!

Monday morning & I need a nice warm quilt!


Up early to root through my clothes and find my mittens, big furry hunting cap, ski pants.....OK, maybe a little bit of an exaggeration but it's freezing in the nations capitol today! I brought my pretty n pink geraniums in last night (flowers for the soon to be window boxes)...because it seemed awfully cold to me...and this morning LOW 30's! That is NOT May winter in D.C.

Ok...sorry i'm such a baby this morning...actually I think this is my husbands fault!!!(He bagged up all his winter clothes over the weekend and put them in the attic) YES, of course...HIS FAULT! :)

Enough of that...picture of my quilt a long. I've been enjoying along with the SEW TAKE A HIKE BLOG. Almost finished. I got a little sidetracked with several other baby quilts I'm trying to get moving a long.

Time for work. And really...got to find something WARM to wear.

Hope your toes are in the warm sand and the sun on your face. Happy Monday. God is good!

One sheet to the wind!

If I didn't already have a fabric "problem" NOW I've become quite enamored with old sheets.There is nothing like the hand of a sheet that is a couple of decades old.

So with my new stash I decided to make the grand baby (gosh..she is so cute) a sweet little sun dress. The pattern used for this is called the BETSEY DRESS by Owl Baby. Great Instructions...makes up in a snap, very forgiving on size. (i am ALWAYS making things a little/lot to big...or worse, sometimes too small). You just can't go wrong with this one!!!

Sorry I've been AWOL for a bit. My Pops had been sick, business was crazy...crazy good :) and still sewing like crazy! Lots more to share as time permits!

Have a fabulous weekend.
