My first Applique! What fun!

First, I'm really enjoying my new "Baby" Tote and am thrilled to hear that the Moms-to-be are happy too. My sister requested one as a gift and wanted a sports theme applique for the pocket. I called my good friend, Sherry for advice - as she's an expert - and went for it. I'm very pleased with how it turned out, but more importantly the Mom-to-be who received it is thrilled.

I can't wait to do another one!

Black & White Damask! What's not to love?

I've been meaning to post this gorgeous damask Tote and I'm finally getting it done. I made this at the request of a dear friend and I'm so pleased with how it turned out. It's a New size made especially for her but I'd love to do more. I think it's a really cool Tote and it holds a ton. The finished measurement is: 12h x 18h x 6d. The black and white damask is a classic combo and she wanted it paired with a sort-of lime green. I'd love to have this in the Damask with HOT PINK. Yeah, Baby. Anyway... it was fun trying something new and I just love how it turned out!

Birthday Girls Getaway Weekend!

I was kidnapped for my 50th Birthday! And, I'm not pressin' charges.

My girlfriends kidnapped me for a surprise Birthday getaway weekend in Panama City Florida. Two others of us had birthdays too so we just celebrated all weekend. Long walks on the beach. Bible study, pondering and great conversation. Good food and tons of laughter (these girls crack me up!). SO much fun and I'm eternally grateful and humbled by their generosity in creating this special moment for me. I have to thank my wonderful husband too because he was in on it all and helped them surprise me.

I wanted to share these beautiful women with you this evening 'cause I just think they're awesome. To Kelly, Janice and Trish I publicly say: Thank you for making my 50th Birthday to best birthday ever!!!! I gotta say thank you to Nayeli too because she helped with the surprise and was too funny in the process. She's delightful!!
I love you girls and am honored and humbled to call you "friend."

Here they are!! The birthday getaway girls.
