Saturday at my LQS and more dresses.

My Mother-in-law and staff at my LQS, Kelley's Pins and Needles. We had a fabulous time at the quilt shop where we found two future quilters sewing away on some gorgeous bags! After finishing our visit at Kelley's, we had lunch at Cracker Barrel. It was soooo good. I had hamburger steak and she got ( of all things) chicken livers and had enough left over to bring home a doggy plate. My son, Bailey was home working on the fence, so we ordered him a "to go" plate of hamburger steak, turnip greans and potato casserole. We put both his to go order and her left-overs in the same bag. When we got home with them, he grabbed the bag and tore into a plate of food. I noticed he had a yucky, funny look on his face and discovered that he had Mother-in-Laws chicken livers. When I told him what they were he turned white as a sheet and was unable to eat his order. Funny, funny, funny! I wouldn't touch a chicken liver with a ten foot pole and he insisted that they had no place " in his house"! Poor boy!

Future quilters:Below is my new little peasant top and pants, the pattern will be ready next week.

The next two pictures ( not so good pictures) are photos of another one of my new designs, The Elizabeth Play Suit.

Another photo of the peasant play suit. I will be teaching both of these outfits and the Sherri dress this Spring. The peasant outfit was designed to feature the use of the serger in making children's garments. It was a ton of fun to make.

This wonderful Carpenter Star, made by Laura Hensleigh, is creatively made using bright and cheerful Batiks set against Kona black. I love it!

Mom and I both were exhausted after our day and happy to get back home for a nap!

Oh, and here is my "hunka chunka" of burning love, my baby boy, Bailey.


  1. Love the clothes. They are so cute. It's a pity Gem has become too big for playsuits like that.

    Love and hugs Gina xxx

  2. You know I have just the little girls for these new outfits!!!!! I can feel a purchase coming on!! :-) You are so talented to "invent" such gorgeous outfits!!

    Happy Sewing!
