I need to back up a bit to Sat. Feb 18th. We headed down to San Diego to celebrate 8 year old Donatella Valentina's (born on Valentine's Day) birthday. It was a fun but simple party and we enjoyed every minute of the games, snacks, and fun. We got her a guitar as she has expressed such an interest in learning to play. We have also decided to help out with some guitar lessons for her, and honestly I am really looking forward to her learning to play. I am envisioning a future worship leader in this girl!
|HOW CUTE IS SHE? AND THE PINK GUITAR SUITS HER PERFECTLY|
|MOM AND DAD GOT THE STRAP AND THE CARRYING CASE AND SHE'S ALL SET|
|IT WAS POURING RAIN THAT DAY BUT NO WORRIES. THEY SET THE PARK PLANNED PARTY UP IN THE GARAGE, AND 23 KIDS HAD A WONDERFUL TIME, LOL|
And honestly other then that I guess I don't really have much more to catch you up on. I am back to a sewing frenzy. I guess you have had to figure out by now that I spend some time pretty much every day at my machine. I just enjoy it so. I always have. But the difference now is I don't have a lot of other things that demand my time and attention, so it opens up LOTS of time to pursue this....wink... I do enjoy quilting too, but truthfully, I just prefer the garment sewing. It's quick and varied and fun. And right at the top of my list is making little girl's clothing, (again, always has been) so this works out well for the little girls in my life. Particularly Claire. Let me show you what I have been up too....
Let me start with showing you this 20 sec or so video of little Claire wearing one of her new interchangeable outfits I sent her. Melody sent it to me so that I could see how well it fit her. I want you to see it so you can see WHY I enjoy sewing, lol
|THEN I HAD TO ADD A LITTLE SHIRT TO GO WITH IT OF COURSE....THOUGH THEY COULD BOTH BE WORN WITH SOMETHING ELSE TOO|
Got some more sewing lined up for this week, but that's about it. Hope you are all healthy (goodness sooo much sickness going around this winter, (but hubby and I both have escaped thus far thank God!) and enjoying your winters. I am hoping to get around to visit and catch up with all of you now... Many blessings to you all! Debbie
