About Me

My photo
I am a Homemaker and Freight Broker (with my husband) who has a love of needle crafts, sewing, crochet, cross-stitch. I learned to sew in 2007, really love using vintage patterns (1940's, 50's, 60's) & and seeing how I can modernize them with fabric choices and trims). I need 25 hours in a day to get to everything I want to do!

Western Days, yee-haw

This is the weekend of our town's festival, Western Days. As promised, a picture of the finished bandanna dress for Hayley. She is modeling it with a white onesie and socks as she would not leave her shoes on. It is from New Look #6842, view D minus collar and waist tie. It is made from red bandanna quilting cotton. Made like the directions asked for, used size small (approx. fits like a realistic 9-12 mos RTW), but is just snug enough in the bodice. The next one will have to be slightly larger, say a medium. I handhemmed and hand finished the back facings and bodice lining for a cleaner edge. This will be the pattern for her Christmas jumper. Onward next to my other projects...

Budweiser Clydesdales


There were antique tractors, cars, buggies, fire engines, football teams, bands, etc.

Last night, I went to the booth with Mike & plan on returning tonight after kid's bedtime to help again. Lots of fun, street dances (think "Sweet Home Alabama" movie with the fair/dances). Life should return to normal soon.
Also, Happy 4th Birthday to Philip, my youngest son
