Project Pajamas

On one of my previous post I showed the bottoms of the pjs I was making but forgot to show a pic of the top. The customer that ordered these custom made pjs wanted to embellish them for a pageant. I just got the picture of the finished pjs. The are so cute if I say so myself. She did a great job with turning them into Sesame Street's Cookie Monster. She will be sending me pictures from the pageant. When I get them I will be sure to post them. I you need anything custom made just contact me and I will see what I can do.

Tuesday Blog Hops

I plan on joining these two blog hops today. Just be sure to follow the individual blog hop rules. Have fun hopping!

Do you think I should start my own blog hop? If so what day do you think is best.

The Story of Casper and Maggie Labrador

Casper is very lonely and he would like to have a play mate.

Casper loves to play with the little kittens and watch over them while they are sleeping. But what he really wants is a mate.

Casper finally has a mate, Maggie, and they just had nine puppies. Eight boys and one girl. There was 1 chocolate, 2 black and 6 yellowish white darling little puppies.

The puppies were very hungry!

Maggie was getting very tired and needed to sleep but the puppies were still so very hungry.

To Be Continued.........

Grandkids At Play

These pictures turned out so good I figured I would share them with you. This is my oldest granddaughter Corby, her friend and her step sister Evie. I believe they are doing what you call morphing. It is hilarious.

This is a really cute one three of the grandkids a couple of years ago.

Can you tell they are Texas Longhorn Fans.

Now this is my handsome grandson Kyler and he still likes to sit in the rocking chair recliner with me.

I have two sister and five daughters no brothers or sons. So this was my first boy, grandson.

These last few pictures are of my 2 yr old grandbaby Macy playing at her Poppy's ranch in the sprinkler

climbing on the fence

then falling off the fence.

Little Macy and the Goats.

This is so precious!

all of the kids love it at the ranch they ride tractors, four wheelers, go hunting and have bon fires. Only bon fires when there isn't a fire ban.

Recycled Blue Jeans - Sewing Machine Cover

This is my MOST VIEWED POST of all times. 
I would share it with my friends and viewers.

I am proud to say that in May 2011 my blue jean sewing machine cover was featured on Jill's Jembellish blog. I am very excited about this.
I use the pockets and belt looks for my scissors, seam ripper, and other sewing accessories I might need to start a sewing project.

I have lot of recycled jean fabric. I'd like to make a skirt with the jean top and calico or other print fabric for the skirt. If I get it done this weekend I will attach it to this post. I also have a lot of quilt squares cut out to make a Texas Longhorn Stadium Rag Quilt. But I found out that since the fabric is licensed I would not be able to sell it I can give it as a gift but I can't sell it.

My Computer Died!

I apologize for not joining any of the blog hops or making any new post to my blog! My computer died on me and I will be getting another one this weekend. Hope you don't forget about me! I am now using the local library cumputer. I have internet on my phone but I have never used it for internet or texting except for emergencies. I will try and get my grandaughter or daughter to make a post for me tonight so you can at least read something different.
I was hoping that at the library I could access my Sony ereader account to get some of my books to read on my ereader but the library does not have access. So I guess I will just check a book out at the library.
Hope everyone is doing well and I can't wait to get back to blogging and hopping. I miss you all!!!

Dropped Some of My Prices in My Etsy Shop

I decided to lower the price on some of my items in my Etsy Shop. Please take advantage of this lowering of prices! Sells have been slow since Easter passed. If you need something you would like to be made for you little ones that I don't have listed just let me know and I will see if I can get it made for you.

I know some of you are wondering about whether I got the camera for Mother's Day. Well as far as I know from all the different stories I am getting from my family is that it might be in the mail.
Let's just hope I get the camera.

God Bless You All,

Today is My 18th Wedding Aniversary

I am usually the only one that remembers our anniversary. But this morning just after midnight my darling husband woke me up and told me Happy Anniversary. I was in shock I asked him how in the world did you manage to know that. He said the computer gave him a reminder. LMBO He thought he was so clever. Now let's see what he does with that bit of information today. I will keep you posted as to what happens next. I am hoping for a camera for Mother's Day and I am pretty sure I am getting it because one of my daughters called and asked me if he was getting me a case for my camera. I pretended I already knew. So I called hubby and and gave him the message from our daughter and he started laughing and said I don't know what she is talking about. Isn't my family amusing. Then the other daughter called and asked for my home address as if she had never lived here before. I am enjoying this weekend to say the least.

Two of my beautiful daughters!

Loveable Kittens

Not to long ago someone dropped off their unwanted beautiful calico cat, very pregnant cat. This happens alot since we live way out in the country. Well she had her kittens and I have kept her and the kittens in the house so they do not become fereal cats and multiply.

I always have my animals fixed. But with so many being dumped off around here it is getting rather costly. Just in the past few months a young dog, on the verge of starvation, showed up under our house. She is now a beautiful black lab needing a good home. Then the other day there was three small chihuahuas on the busy rural road by our place. They were so scared and so fast we were only able to catch one and she is house broke, love kids and the other animals on our place. What is wrong with these ignorant people that keep dumping off their unwanted pets? If I sound angry it is because I am. We have our own pets that we chose for our family. It is not easy to find a place for these deserted animals. Sorry I will get off my soap box. The main reason I was making this post was to share some pics of the darling kittens. Aren't they precious?

Love Nest Ruffled Dress and High Tea Soirree Dress

I just love these dresses.

I sent a message to the designer to see if I can make these for my shops. If not I will just make them for my grandchildren.

Say a little prayer because I would love to combine hers and my talent and share these dresses with everyone. If you are interested in purchasing one of these patterns here is the link for Carina Gardner Designs.
