Happy Birthday Mom!

I made this casserole cover for my Mom for part of her birthday present. Her birthday is Friday, Feb. 27. The closure is a wooden spoon. I saw these somewhere, but can't remember where. This is my version of it, the best I could remember. It will hold a 9x13 casserole dish. This will be great for toting warm casseroles to church dinners. I hope you like it Mom! Happy Birthday!

New Goodies

I have just completed a monogrammed make up bag for a friend's birthday. I won't tell who it is for since she might see this blog before she receives it.

Happy Birthday!

Trudy Horne Trunk Show

Saturday, March 21 Leticia and I made our way to Smyrna to view the Trudy Horne Trunk Show. Ms. Trudy is so very talented. The garments on display were just breath taking. I'm so glad we arrived just as the show started because by the time we had been there a while, it was very crowded. Thanks to Ms. Trudy for having her picture made with us and also for allowing us to photograph some of her garments. We came away with some fabulous ideas and had a wonderful girls morning out!

Tools of the Trade

My wonderful Brother sewing / monogramming machine and just a sample of the thread collection I have accumulated. I love the colors.

Birthday for Bella

Yesterday my friend Tina called and asked me to make something for her niece's birthday. She wanted a little jumper with a monogram on it. After church last night I whipped up this little cutie for her. The birthday girl's party is Saturday. I sure hope she likes her new jumper.

Stitches Update

Today is another beautiful day! I love this gorgeous weather we are having. I know it won't last, but it is great while we have it! It gives me hope that spring is just around the corner.

I have been working a a size 6 months white, smocked bishop. I'm smocking in a pale blue and adding a pale green vine with pink french knots. I should be finished with it very soon.

I went to Stitcher's Playhouse in Smyrna last week. It is a smocker's dream. If you haven't been there yet, you MUST go. They will be having a trunk show Saturday, Feb. 21 featuring Trudy Horne's gorgeous work. I can't wait!

Also in process is a smocked bishop for a special little girl. Her aunt is having me make it for her. Her initials will be incorporated in the smocking. Too cute! I'm not mentioning any names because I'm not sure if it is a surprise or not.

It's time to start thinking about those Easter outfits! I have already been thinking about what to do for my grandchildren. Hummm, decisions, decisions.
