Haven't forgotten...

You've heard the term..." if you don't use it, you lose it". 

As you know, (if you've read any of my previous post) I love to sew and especially enjoy making bags of various styles and sizes.  What you don't know is that years ago I made almost every dress and/or outfit my daughter,Hannah, wore. (daughter had her 28th birthday this past week.)  A dear friend got me started on smocking and french hand sewing by machine!  I don't even know how many dresses, bubbles, etc I've made. What I do know is it was fun.  Jill and I used to start dresses for our girls on Saturday night and they would wear them to bible class and church the next morning.  I also sewed for my niece that's two years older than Hannah.  On a number of occasions I would call my sister and tell her to bring Holly and meet me in the church parking lot and slip a new dress on her before going inside the building! 

I haven't done that kind of sewing in a long time.  But I learned recently that it's like riding a bike. You might stumble a bit, but you'll get the hang of it again pretty quick!

This little round yoke dress was made for a beautiful, big blue eyed, curly haired little girl with the name Katherine.  I enjoyed making it and it brought back so many memories.

I haven't been on a bike in a while....
I wonder????

Not welcome here...

Have you ever had someone come to your door and you think...

UGH!  Go way!  I don't want you!

It doesn't happen to me often but on occasion I have felt this way.  Because we have an outside dog,  I count on her to give me a shout out when one of these occasions is taking place.  And she did just that this past Saturday.  Not being a "barker" when Rae started having a barking fit I knew someone or something wasn't right. (never go investigate a dogs bark in flip flops) 

We had company!

And so, I did what anyone else would do....hollered, did a little jump dance, screamed snake, snake and ran inside to Hubby Honey.  He shoots said snake and throws it over the pasture fence!  Whew!  He tells me it was, "just an old water snake". Ha!

 It was a snake. In my mind a snakes a snake and that makes them unwelcome company!
