Sweet Little Pumpkin!


A very cute little Pumpkin!


My pumpkin is on the front row....far right.

Our family got together and carved pumpkins.

It was a fun time to be together and have all my Louisiana Grand kids in one place.

This photo was taken of Victoria, myself and Londyn before the other kids arrived.  And I never did get that photo with all of them together!  

Next year.....

Londyn in Pink!

Today, Miss London is wearing my French Acadian Sundress made in pink.


It is the 9 Month size.

It is fashioned after the sundresses made in South Louisiana for so many years.

The originals were all made by hand but I used a sewing machine.
Except for the embroidery and finishing.

She is such a doll!

Here is the same dress in Blue.

Airport Art - Every Piece a Conversation!

I loved this exhibit at the airport as I was arriving into Winston Salem (Greensboro Airport).

I took more time to see it as I was waiting for my plane to leave.


The dog is my favorite. 

He looks just like my Brown Dog.
(maybe everyone thinks he looks like their dog)

But don't you think he looks like a Lab?


And just like that!
The Saga National Convention was over.

And we all had a read good time!!!

More Saga Fun!


I also taught beginning Shadow Embroidery.

This is a beautiful embroidery technique and so easy to stitch!


This design is from my Embroidery Book.

I'm so happy that my raffle Basket of Buttons and Other OFB Treasures went to someone who I know will love them.

Saga National - Baby's French Bonnet Class

This is the Little French Bonnet's Fancy Band. It was stitched by a student.
As a teacher I think this is an excellent class to learn Heirloom Sewing.

Students learn great techniques.  They have the experience of working on a real project, where you always do your best work.  And the bonnet is well on the way to completion by the end of the six hour class.  Win - Win!!

This old Singer Sewing machine did a wonderful job at Heirloom Sewing.

Just goes to show you don't have to have a machine with all the bells and whistles.


This is my finished Bonnet.

"Baby Bonnets 1" Pattern available.
