Hoo Am I???

Found a new blog, I know I'm blog hopping again :-)!!!  Hoping to get my blog noticed more, so here goes!!

1. Do you decorate for the 4th of July?

No, I'm not a big decorator, my daughter is the one that normally does this type of thing and she just recently got married and moved out, such a sad time in my life!!

2. Do you buy fireworks for the 4th of July?

No, our state limits what you are allowed to set off so we normally just watch what the town puts together.

3.  How do you celebrate the 4th of July?

We normally spend it with family and friends, doing family reunions or just random picnics.

4.  Do you have a family member serving our country?

Not in active duty right now, I have however had many family members serving in the past.  I do have a very good friend who's son is on his way home from Afgahanistan as I type, he is to be in NC on Friday evening.  I do have a cousin that is doing the civilian thing right now in Afgahanistan, he is retired Marines.

5. Do you dress in red, white, or blue for the 4th of July?

Yes, I do normally try to dress in 1 or all 3 of those colors for the holiday weekend.

Well until next time,

Bridal Shower Gifts

Please remember I am NOT the photographer of the family, unfortunately he wasn't available when I was taking these photos.  My cousins daughter is getting married next month and as a shower gift I made towels for the kitchen, I told her since I didn't know which of the 2 would be doing the cooking this covered them both!
Also did these pillowcases, this is a first for me and I think I'll do them again, I am very please with how they turned out. 
I'll have to spend some time looking for cute saying to put on them, I thought about putting "I have a headache" and "I have an aspirin" on them but decided to be safe and just use their last name.

Until next time,

Latest venture

A dress for a little girl, special order from a co-worker.  She wanted a dress for her daughter, it was easier than I thought it would be.  I do have to say that I am very happy with the way it turned out.

Well until next time,

Sewing classes

Well, I've commited, I'm going to offer a class to teach the younger generation to sew.  Lord help me, I have never taught sewing before but I really feel the need to give back.  I would like to inspire the young ones to learn to sew with some direction and not have to learn by themselves like I did.

I'm going to work with the local quilt shop, A Touch of Thread Quilting Gallery where Martha and her family have adopted me into the family. They have been so encouraging to me and I really appreciate the opportunity they are giving me to do this.

Keep me in your prayers as I take on this challenge.

Until next time,

Another wedding item

I know everyone is probably getting tired of all the wedding stuff, and I think I'm finally done now.

This is the ringbearer's pillow that I cross stitched, it's a pattern I got from Creative Poppy wasn't too bad to make and put together.  I changed the colors to match the wedding.

Well until next time,
