A bit of sewing

I am working on an order for my neighbor.
This is a childs size 8 apron.

Also some notebook covers
with monograms
and a pincushion.

Next I am working on some lunch bags.

43 more sleeps!

Happy Birthday Jocelyn

It's Jocelyn's birthday today.
Walked around the neighbourhood to
take pictures of birthday flowers.

This is our flower bush.

My neighbour across the street has a red one.

This belongs to another neighbour.

Our tree in the back yard.

Kevin attached a rope to it for the girls.

These little buttercups grow all over the lawn.
I hope everyone has a great day.
I have to go sew now.
God Bless

Oh No!! Not again.

It's my birthday, again!!
Received a delivery from my daughter.
Aren't these beautiful flowers.

And a fruit basket.
With cheese, crackers, jam, cookies.

And of course, chocolate.

Kevin took me out for supper at White Spot

Then watched a movie "It's Complicated".

49 More sleeps!!

If I had a bike, I think this would be it.
I don't have anything new to post about in regards to sewing.
Kevin is gone having fun for the long weekend.
So I am here doing more of what I usually do.
Watching kids.
Because Kevin is off having fun,
I get a little extra work.
Sure will be glad when this long weekend is over.
Kevin took the camera so I don't have any new pictures, but because blogs can be really boring without a picture, I snagged this one off the Internet.

Jocelyn sent me

and a fruit basket
with a chocolate bar.
Thank you.

Kevin is taking me out for lunch after church.
Food is always good.

Saturday Project

A skirt for Jessica. Her choir at school is doing a little performance on Tuesday so I decided to make her a new skirt with ruffles and ric rac. I will get a better picture of it on Tuesday when she has the proper shirt on with it. I asked Kevin if he thought it was too long. He said "No, that is the proper length for a skirt". He can be such a Dad!!

Using my gathering foot.
It is one of my favorite feet for my machine.
You can make miles of ruffles in no time flat.
