"Oh say can you sew"

 It has been a long, long, long winter & come spring everyone always asks me "What do you do all winter?"
 I know I keep saying I'm going to my sewing room that is!  I am going to show you in the next couple posts what I have done for the past 3 months
 This a skirt that LiLi wanted me to make for her.  I showed her a similar one in a quilting book I had & let her design it.  We started with a jelly roll Cameo by Amy Butler & she laid out all the strips the way she wanted it to look.  I just did all the sewing. I used my serger to sew all the strips together & then top stitched each piece.  We modified it from the original by making it a little fuller with more of a gathered ruffle.
 I then took all the leftover strips & made this dress which is also similar to one that was in the same book
 Lots of repetitive sewing but so much fun to do.  I also love that I have the world's best model to to wear these!

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!
