"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!

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!


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
