Mommy's Angel

This is a collage of my granddaughter Emily. She liked my self portrait and wanted to keep it. I think she'll like one of herself more.

Dotties Arrived

Here is a picture of the Dotties I received today. They are each so sweet and so different. The little one with the gold sequins around her face is "Honey Bear". She traveled all the way from Australia. Thank you Ivy Yates! The little green owl came from Julianna "Belle" Doerres in Arizona. Don't you just love the glasses? Thanks Julianna. The "Snow Spirit" was made by Sarah Jones in Sweden. I laughed when I saw her because we had a few snowflakes flying around last week. So, she was very appropriate!
Thanks you ladies, I love them all!......and a HUGE "Thank You" to Judi Wellnitz for all the work she did hosting this exchange!

New Purse

I am taking a fabric dyeing class on Saturday. We will dye 20 yards of cotton. I am so excited. This is something I have been wanting to do for a long time. The class is through my local quilt shop. I am not a big quilter and neither are a lot of ladies who shop there. So, I designed this purse to use many different colors. Hopefully, it will give the "none quilters" some ideas ! Hope they like it! I used dupioni silk and batiks. I also put an adjustable strap on straps are always to long!
