"Oh say can you sew?"

 LiLi spent the day at our house on Veteran's day.  We had a long list of "things to do"
 First up was sewing.  I showed her some ideas & she wanted to make a bag.  She went "shopping" in my stash of fat quarters & ribbons & picked out her supplies.  I just folded the materials different ways so she could visualize how it would look & let her decide how to make it.

 Yes I let her use "real" scissors
 Don't you love the concentration!
 After trying different ways for the handles she cut the ribbon.
 I showed her how to fold down the top edge & iron it in place...No Mark I did not let her use the iron!
 I didn't take pics of the actual sewing because she was sitting in my lap....that part is a little tricky....she's not tall enough to sit on the chair & reach the foot control so we have to get creative!
 Here she is turning it right side out (please ignore my messy sewing room)
 The finished product....we actually made two of them.  One for her best friend Gabby.

Happy birthday to my big brother Terry...........have a wonderful day!

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!
