Catching up with Pictures

Pictures!!  I ordered and received in April the most gorgeous antique Rooster and Hen salt and pepper shakers from Sew Graceful.   Mary is a treat to know and her selection of fabric and other items is unique and her website is fun to peruse.  

Something else I received is a doll that I found on Ebay that is identical to my first doll at 5 years old.  A problem is her eyes look like cataracts have invaded. I identify with her and understand the blindness that comes with that issue.  Thank God I had successful surgery in both eyes. Now I have to fix my doll's eyes.

I wanted to show you the One-Tie bag the Sewing Guild loved and wants me to teach a class.

Something I finished over the weekend watching Nascar (I get so much done with the race on) is a 1976 butterfly pattern.  I had made at least 1/2 dozen then. I am beginning again, only this time I will use them as appliques instead of doilies.  It is so fun getting back to my roots. 

Have a great week, Happy May.
God Bless and thanks for the visit.


  1. butterflie! love them and they will make great appliques too! Also, I can identify with your feelings about your doll as I still have a doll by my bedside that I had as a child ~ love it!
