What was up with Aunt Em???

LiLi decided she wanted to be Dorothy for Halloween & my first thought was "How easy is that!"
As usual I was so wrong!!!  I was so excited when I went to the store as I not only snagged the last 2-3/4 yds of blue & white gingham, I got an end of bolt discount!  Then also snagged the last packet of blue rick rack.  It gets better!  I ran next door to T*rget & got the last pair of ruby red slippers in her size!
Then I went home & started sewing & discovered Aunt Em must have thought she was Betsy Ross.....look at those sleeves! Notice the straps & trim cut on the bias!
This is on the have to make this!  It's cut on the bias!  Then pressed like bias tape before being sewn on!  I still have scars!  Aunt Em was an "overachiever"!
I could have skipped that part. 

Would anyone have noticed if I did?

But you know me.

 I didn't.

 I guess that makes me an "overachiver" as well!

Round Lake Village

Every time we go to Round Lake we wander down streets we've never seen before
A little people house
This garden was gorgeous
Look if you buy this house you definitely need to get along with your neighbors!
This house is even smaller & comes with a golf cart
This house really fascinated me
That stonework is incredible
They need to make it a little more welcoming

They are still working on my house

I would love to see the inside.......I hope they plan on selling it & then I can go to an open house
"Mama I have flyaway ears again today!"

Love Val

Snowy day in the park

I have an abundance of snow pics.  Between last Thurs & Monday we had 20 inches of snow!  We are so done with this white stuff!
 But I do have to admit it is pretty

 Makes for great pictures
 And you'll see from the next few pics how much Molly loves it!

   We take a two second pause.....
 ......& off again

 I do hope the hornets went to Florida for the winter

 This sums up the whole walk!
