"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!


We went to JoAnne & Peter's for thanksgiving this year.  They were cooking dinner & Josh & Carol were going to be there
 Molly is always game for a road trip!

 It was gray , gloomy day & kinda chilly by the river
 Sadie is such a cutie
 We couldn't get Addie to pose as cute
 Josh got there first as Carol had to work......these dogs just love him

 I forgot to take pics of the table but everything was so good & JoAnne made apple pie!
 We spent the night & left for home after breakfast on Friday.  Our GPS sent us home a different way & we crossed the Tappan Zee bridge.  They are building a new one so lots of work going on

 One of those big cranes toppled over a few weeks ago.....they are so tall
 Look at the size of that one!
 As you know I love bridges

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!
