I got to babysit a princess today!

I got to babysit my princess today while her mommy and daddy had a little date for lunch. Her mama brought her in a delightful little outfit but the princesss and I had a secret mission! I had saved one of her mama's dresses from when she was also about four months old. So, while mama was away, we got the princess all dressed up in her mama's little dress and bonnett. Then we got the camera out. I think she looks so sweet and beleive me she is a sweetie. Grandchildren are such a blessing.

I Got The Sweetest Phone Call

The telephone rang and I picked up the receiver. A sweet little voice asked if Grandpa was home from work yet. I said that yes, Grandpa had just got home. The little voice said "I wanted to come up and help Grandpa in the garden." The voice belonged to my eight year old grandson, Benji. My son's farm is just a half mile down the road from our farm. I asked if he want Uncle Andy to come down and get him so he could help Grandpa. Andy ( my son-in-law) hopped on the four wheeler and went right down and picked Benji up.

Recycling Ideas!

I created a recycled skirt for my granddaughter today. I purchased an Old Navy skirt from the thrift store for $1.99. The skirt was in like new condition but was a mini skirt and my granddaughter like long skirts. You can also use old jeans that have holes, stains, or are too short. I cut the bottom portion off. I then added a cute cotton print to make the bottom portion of the skirt.

I Think Spring Is Really Here!

It's been a little while since I posted. I have been busy sewing for another wedding. It's finished and it was beautiful. It's always nice to see a bride and groom so happy and in love. It's also a nice feeling to know that I had a little part in creating the beautiful satin gowns that will be part of the bride's wedding memories.

We've had one new calf born this spring. We are waiting on one more that is due anytime now! My hubby is getting things ready for his garden. He has also planted another apple tree. We've never had too much success with our grape arbor. We think it does not get enough sun. So, Hubby is starting a new arbor in a sunnier spot!

Wishing you a beautiful week.
