Karen's Pretty Jacket


This is the pretty little jacket the collar was attached to!

Made by Karen (one of the Still Magnolias)
The back of the jacket.

The jacket was made using fabric and embellished hankies with her personal hand embroidery added.

Bullions and eyelets.  Two of my favorites.







Bunches and bunches of beautiful embroidery!!

Still Magnolias - Sewing Wagon


Sewing Wagon.

It has a wonderful sound to it, don't you think?  Sewing Wagon.

This was the cool toy at this Retreat,

Many people had them.  They loaded their Sewing Supplies in them to cart them from their car to their sewing space at the table.

There was room at this Retreat center to have the Wagon handy to keep supplies at the ready.


After class, they packed up the Sewing Wagon and carted everything back to their car!

Easy as that!

Each wagon carried a full load and were easy to pull.


And they folded up into a little bit of space.

Word is they purchased them at Sam's or Costco.

I think they were called Beach Wagons, but I had never seen them on the beach.

The are really neat!

Still Magnolias - Gift Exchange

The Still Magnolias have a Gift Exchange when they have a Retreat.

You bring a gift (under $10) and you get to choose a gift.
They were wrapped up all pretty.

I had a gift to add to their exchange because I love surprises and wanted to play.

This was my gift.  I love this Scissor Holder.
Do I remember Myra telling me her husband had something to do with making this?

Can that be right?

Anyway, I am pleased as punch.
