I Made A Thing

I am ecstatic to say that I have a new great grand daughter! She was born at 35 weeks gestation due to my grand daughter having some medical issues, but both of them are fine and healthy! I am so happy to report!

I have been busy sewing things for our new baby despite the fact that she is far away. Because she was early, I set to work sewing some preemie clothes and mailed them off to mom. But now I am sewing the next size up, zero to three months.

Here is one of the little outfits I have made for her. It is a pair of pajamas and a hair band with a tulle bow with a little stuffie made from the fabric. It is 100 percent cotton.



I am looking forward to seeing her in her outfit at Thanksgiving!

Until Next Time!

Here he is doing his fist actual canning (with a lot of help from his mentor). What is he canning? Pinto beans.

Especially since my left hand is pretty much disabled from a previous broken arm. Although my wrist still hurts in some positions and tires easily, I have rejected the splint for the most part and am trying to get back to my normal activities.

Last week we went on a little trip to the place we were married almost 45 years ago: Las Vegas. Read the rest of this entry »
