The sweetest little dancers…

I was too busy to comment yesterday, but I read all your comments. Thank you!!

I am on my way home and will be back in the sewing routine soon, but until I get home, here is one sweet picture, sent to me from Joy. Her sweet granddaughter, Landry, is on the far right…isn’t she adorable? The kids are now 4 years old and this is their dance recital.

If you click on the picture, it will enlarge…

I was trying to crop part of the background out of the picture and didn’t quite get the job done. When I tried to redo it, I wasn’t successful either…you can still see the kids just fine though.

I’ll see you tomorrow…
Blessings, Jeanne

Shopping and Vegging…

Hi all,
Still down in Missouri visiting my sister but we’ll be coming home on Wednesday. We have done some craft projects and of course…gave some of our money to a few Springfield merchants…you know…shopping. :o)

One of my very favorite places to eat is Hu Hot, a Mongolian Grill where you go through a line, fill up your bowl with whatever you want for your stirfry dish, and then watch the guys there cook it in front of you…I snapped a few pics in case you’ve never seen one before…it’s such a fun place to eat and the food is always yummy!!!

I also went to one of Deb’s Hobby Lobby’s and look what I found…

Not just one, but two…

I know a few ladies hinted that they’d like to have one, so I can figure out how to do this…maybe sell them just as they are or finish them like mine…

I found some little red doll shoes that needed some “love”…

…and I couldn’t get out of the store without picking up 2 of these cotton plant sprigs…

Yep…that’s what we’ve done here…shopped and vegged…just like Charlie and Lucy…

Oh, for our entertainment tonight, we watched “The Ghost and Mr. Chicken,” starring Don Knotts. I hadn’t seen it since I was a young girl. We saw it at a drive in when my dad was still alive…
I have to tell you, we laughed ourself silly!!

See you tomorrow,
Blessings, Jeanne

Today’s flowers brought to you by Linda!

Somebody always bails me out when I’m going out of town or super busy, by sending me pictures of something I can use for a post… This time Linda sent me some pictures of the lilies in her yard and they were just too pretty not to show… She has the typical lilies and two VERY pretty hybrids…

So let’s discuss the flowers you have in YOUR yard today…

See you Monday,
Blessings, Jeanne

A baggie of “Show and Tell…”

Let’s see if you get this…

If you don’t get it… Nora is on “the back burner.” Want to know why? Because I’m heading out of town to visit my sister Deb and help her celebrate her birthday. My mom and I are leaving Friday morning and we’ll probably be gone until Tuesday or maybe even Wednesday. I guess it depends if we wear out our welcome.

I didn’t have anything new to show you on Nora’s dress as my day was full from morning till now…it’s 10:25 and I’m still not finished packing… My hubby woke up this morning and decided he wanted to go visit this showroom with all different flooring samples. Well, since we’ve been walking on crummy plywood floors for 13 years, how could I say, “Today? You picked today?” So I fit it into my schedule…somewhere between boiling eggs for my hubby and picking up my mom’s car so George can look it over before we go. There were the usual interruptions in my day… a friend needing advice on how to get her money out of paypal, since this was her first transaction, and she didn’t have a clue what to do, Rebecca needing a headband stitched up, a trip to the grocery store to get a few “snacks for the road” and of course, playing with my new haircut… 4″ shorter makes a big difference!

Somehow I managed to fit in burritos for dinner and get all my comments answered… and I even ran by the thrift shop to see if they had anything I “needed” for the trip…clothes wise! Well, nothing to wear, but just as I was about to leave, a tiny baggie caught my eye… Guess what was in it? LACE… but of course. It wasn’t your typical polyester or nylon lace, but a few pieces caught my eye. The baggie was taped shut but it was $4.00 and I decided to take a chance and see what surprises might be inside… I was actually pretty pleased with all the pieces except maybe 2 of them…

Okay, now this is for all you seamstresses out there… if you had seen the front and the back of this baggie, would have given it a second glance?

I opened it up and this is what was inside…

This big white rick rack is my least favorite… it does nothing for me…and will probably end up in a bag or box going back to the Thrift Shop.

I do like these 3 dainty little laces…

Here they are unrolled a bit…

I think this pink and white tatted piece is interesting…

These 2 white pieces aren’t quite my cup of tea, but I might use them on something sometime…

So that was my day… I better sign off so I can finish packing. Again, sorry about nothing to show on Nora, but she’ll be like Molly was a few weeks ago…happy to have extra time on the cutting table. My girls say it’s “the most important place in my sewing room!” :o)

See you tomorrow, I hope…
Blessings, Jeanne
