Christmas Tree Apple Pie

My hubby loves apple pie.. Now... he has been
really sweet to me lately!! [Christmas is in the air]
So.. I made him a "pre- Christmas pie"

NOTE: the reason the title says Christmas tree
apple pie-- uuuumh.. my friend Cathe, is
a baker and  so talented.. she makes pies all
the time,and puts leaves and all kinds of
designs on them. GORGEOUS!! so.. I tried
it. All  I can say..........there really was a
tree on top.. it faded..hahahha

This photo shows  a little bit of the Christmas
All in all.. I had fun trying, and Hubby totally
enjoyed the pie.. Said it was the best one , I ever
made?? ha  [He even laughed at my Tree]

Merry Christmas ...Have fun and enjoy your

Fun Christmas Sewing-- Making a Small Table Runner

Christmas  Presents...So fun to Make
 small table runner--One end has a
machine embroidered present

The other end has a machine embroidered

I added Red gingham check ribbon to
each end.. [Nothing says Christmas like
 red checks!!!] -and my old antique milk
bottle holding  pretty  red/white/green
paper straws..

Pillow wraps...[Have you seen these floating
around Pintrest and Etsy?] I doubled this
one so it could be turned to the other side ,
to change the looks.. Just slip it on a matching
throw pillow.. so cute...

Inside is red/white/green mini stripe.

I have made several of these for  Gifts..
I embroidered an initial on   some of them..
[sorry forgot to take photo, and they are
already packaged..]

Fun to be doing some fun sewing.. I have
a few more Christmas gifts to make..

Hope each of you are enjoying your Christmas

Sewing Birthday Presents for Twin Grandaughters

Sisters Forever [Frozen] Skirts  for
Amy and Ashlee

Chevron    Purse for Amy

                                              Happy 10 th Birthday Amy & Ashlee

                                       So hard to believe the girls turned 10 yrs old
                          this month.. They love the movie Frozen.. I found
                          this  fabric, and it was barely enough for the 2 
                          skirts. I bought  matching rtw t-shirts  to go with 
                          them. I also made Amy a chevron initial purse.
                          Ashlee doesn't like purses, so I bought her another
                          present.. Also, got the girls outfits for their
                          American Girl dolls.

                    Sewing... I have done a  few sewing things,  a tunic
                    for me,  an initial pillow .. Just need to photograph 
                     them.  Sorry for the lack of post, I  got in a lull, after
                     Callie got sick.. But , I am hoping to get to sewing
                     more real soon..Miss it!!!

                Update on Callie... She went back to Children's Hospital
                 yesterday, and  had another EEG and blood work.. Have 
                not heard from blood work..But the EEG was normal. 
                Meaning the seizure meds is working.. She is still  having
                some problems, but we thank God for this news.. Please 
                continue to pray for her. and thank you all for your

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.
