How Sweet is Kenny

Old Ball Canning Jar

Doesn't this look like a handful of wild flowers
from   a sweet little girl?

 Kenny is so thoughtful, He was out at his deer camp house, it
has some old sheds on it. and he was cleaning one out, when
he found this dirty old canning jar. He knew I would see the
beauty in it. And I did!!  I had been sick for a while, and was
house bound [no fabric stores was visited..oooh this was bad,ha].
 He brought  it home to me, I cleaned it and oh how pretty..
I have seen lots of old canning jars, but this one, had a  funny
shape to it..
  I told Kenny, all I needed was for a little girl to bring me
a handful of wild flowers.His reply,"I think Cindy[our grown
daughter] is a little  too old for that!"  So, I did the next best
 thing ,I went to my stash of artificial flowers,and gave myself
 a handful of flowers.. And I added a tiny little bird  to the flowers..
  How have such a thoughtful husband. The little things
are what counts!!!!

Judy's Been Sewing---Dresses for Grandaughters

Amy and Ashlee

Ashlee and Amy

I am back..It has been a long time.  I was sick for a long time, and my
computer crashed.. I had to replace it.. But , all the while ,I have been
sewing. I will be posting my projects ,as I get photos of them. SO
good to have a computer again!!!

Jumpers & Blouses for  Amy and Ashlee [twin grandaughters]

I made each girl a blouse with peter pan collars. [They have to wear
uniforms for their new school, and this is their colors]. But,I decided
to add dresses  that matched the blouses.. The new blouses could do
double duty for new dresses.. I also made them  a 1/2 slip to go under
the dresses..[But  no pictures of the slips,ha]
The jumpers were both made from fabric in my stash.. I embroidered
thier names on them.

So  fun to sew little girl clothes..

Update on Judy [Missing in Action}

Hi my sweet friends,

  Thankyou all so much for your sweet commments and prayers, I  appreciate it so much.

   I am home from the hospital [Thank God.], I am still battling the asthma and it is winning
[lol]. I have to stay in for awhile. I have an appointment with my pulmonologist [lung doctor]
tomorrow. My doctor wants him to see if he can think of something else to do or change?
But , I do feel some better today ..So I feel I am heading up the hill  now.Yea!!!  Ready to'

    As for my computer, I got it out of the shop, but as the computer doctor said, it's on it's
last leg, and I lost all my stuff on it..[So, If any of you have emailed me, I didn't get them,
and I have lost all email addresses until I hear from you, I will have no way to get
them back, so sorry.. Please email me  your adresses again.].  As soon as  I can get out ,
 I am going to buy a new computer. But until then.. I am hoping to be able to , at least , be
able to  communicate with my buddies and check out sew weekly..[sure  have missed  all
the sewing and what you lovely girls  have been doing].

   Hugs to you all. Judy
