"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!

My car is pigeon-toed!!!!!!

I get out of work on Thurs at 1:00 & usually play golf with my buddy Dominic.  Yesterday was kinda rainy, blustery so we decided not to play.  I headed up to the mall but got side-tracked on the way.  One of the things on my extremely long to-do list was "get two more tires for my car".  I pulled into Mavis Tire & checked to see how long it would take.


I was told around 20 mins before my car would get in so I decided to wait.


About an hour later my overly friendly mechanic wants to show me did I know it wasn't going to be pretty!  My rear "struts".....whatever they may be.... were leaking causing the rear end to lift up when I braked causing my car to "pigeon toe" which in turn was making my  new tires .....that were put on the front wheels in wear unevenly.  As if that wasn't enough for my brain to digest one of the front wheels had a bad wheel bearing.

Needless to say at that poin…


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!"
