Wow... My kitchen table would barely hold all this   I have a friend that I sew  Holiday things
for her Girls. I have been doing this for about 11 years.
They love it, and I enjoy it too..
I made 9 skirts, made  15 embroidered  initial pocket  RTW
tees, During this time, I also  made 2 costumes for
some christian schools.

This is the Chrstmas Owl set..

This is the  Halloween pumpkin/ghost  set,  Owl Christmas Set,
and Fall  Candy corn set..
I did 3 sets of these [for 3 girls]
Then I did 6 extra matching shirts for their friends.

photo of the other one.]

 Hope all of you are having a wonderful fall and
enjoying your  sewing. I have made a tunic
for myself too..Just need to photograph..

Callie update:  Callie is improving. Still not completely
seizure free.. But, it will take time to  regulate
her meds. She goes back to Children's Hospital
for  the test  Nov. 10th.  Thank you for your
prayers, Please continue to pray.

Elsa [From Frozen] Costume for Emily [Plus update on Callie]

Emily Morgan
15 yr old granddaughter
 When she came and ask me to make her an Elsa Costume
for  School Spirit Week [dress up week]..Of course, I said,
'YES"----  I did not   realize that  the sheer snow flake cape
would  give me  a  house full of glitter  and FUN?

But yes,  I would do it again... She  was thrilled and had
a really fun day at school.. 

The photo does not show it, but no only is the cape sheer glitter
snowflakes, but the sleeves and upper bodice is sheer fabric\
and so not fun to sew.. She had to wear a  tee shirt under
it for school, due to the dress code.

Note: Update on Callie [thjs is  Emily's sister]
Callie is improving.. She is still having some small seizures /tremors.
But, they are working on regulating the medicines.. She is very
tired. But we are very thankful for the improvement, and very
thankful of all your prayers.

Update on Callie

Praying for Callie

 Callie went to the  pediatric neurologist on Friday..  She has  Juvenile  Epsilepsy
It is not the kind , that she will out grow. She  will have  to take meds
the rest of her life. They have started her on  these. and will work to
get them  regulated.  She is still having seizures at night.  She has 3 types
of seizures. They are:
1- The convulsive type-  which is the bad ones. like she had last Thursday, when she
quit breathing and required CPR.
2- Myoclonic Seizures-  this is where she has the jerking/spasm on the right
side of her body.
3-small seizures  [during her wake hours]. that only last 8-10 seconds.  The doctor
said. she nor anyone else  would notice it. But,  she is doing this so  much,
and  has been for a long time. that is why she is always so tired, and needs

 We are very sad, that  she has to deal with this , for the rest of her life. But, are
so thankful , that it is treatable with medicine. We know, the  outcome,
could have been so much worse.

I want to say a special thank you to all my blog friends. I thank you so much
for  all your prayers and thoughts. May God bless each of you.

ps.. went by  to see her after church.. she is still sleeping a lot, and  not
feeling well.. Hope the medicine gets regulated, and she feels better soon.

Skirts/Tees for the Twins [and a few other sewing projects -completed]

Ashlee Gail

 I made the girls a  monogrammed  pocket
 for a RTW t-shirt. I had lots of  chevron fabric
left, so I make them  a simple a-line skirt.
They both like them, they said,  they look
like big girls.ha

Amy Grace

Disney princess pillowcase dress for Elly.

I was asked to make this Doc McStuffin
a-line dress for a little girl. It was super easy
to make.  It has one button in the back..  I
embroidered "Doc McStuffin" on
the yoke.. This little girl  LOVES this cartoon.

for me, planned. Happy sewing to each of you,

Prayers for Callie


                                                                   Prayers for Callie

                    Callie is our 13 yr old granddaughter. She is a very sweet and lovely
                    girl. Just a joy to our lives.

                   On Thursday night, I got the worse call , that a grandparent could imagine.
                   Cindy called, and when I answered the phone.... All I could hear was,
                   screaming and crying,  She said," Mama, please pray, Tell Daddy to
                   pray... some thing is wrong with Callie, I don't know what?, " I was hysterical and ask
                   " what is wrong?". the phone went dead..  A few minutes later, it rang.
                   She screamed," Oh Mama,  Callie is not breathing, Stanley is doing CPR,
                   and the ambulance is on its way."   I have never felt such terror, in my life.
                   When we got there,  She was being loaded on the  ambulance.

                  After many test,  The doctors said, she had  a seizure.[she has never          
                  had seizures or no one in our family]. She stopped breathing, not sure
                   why? They have called a pediatric neurosurgeon
                  at Lebourner Childrens  Hospital in Memphis, Tn., to get her an appointment
                 .Cindy  is scared to go to sleep, scared to leave her in a room alone, It is terrifying.

                  She seems to be doing fine now..  Other than when, she goes to sleep,
                  her hands are jerking??? Not sure what is going on?

                  I know that God is in control, and He is with her, I  pray for strength \
                  and courage to trust Him and know that He will take care of our sweet

                 Please remember Callie, when you pray..

I had worn it all day , when this photo was taken..So,
it looks wrinkled and unkept.. 

This dress was for my MAGAM challenge. for July.
I did complete it in July..
Fabric and pattern came from my stash. The only thing.
I purchased was the zipper.  The belt was borrowed from
another dress.
