I wasn't sure how to title this post as it covers a number of things, but first up I want to show you some pictures of my little niece who has a passion for 'Little House on the Prairie' (a yearning for the simplistic life must be in the family genes!!)
Anyhow, when she heard we were for Lancaster county for our hols this year, I got a little request for a prairie dress, but not being able to find one already made, we bought some lovely fabric from an Amish fabric shop and a pattern.So you can guess what I have been working on over the last while for her birthday, which was also 'Little house on the Prairie' themed. I must confess it was a joint affair between my mum and I as she had to come to my rescue a few times!
Here are a few pics from my phone-I just wish you could see the little patterns on both the fabrics-makes them very old looking!
I wish I could capture the image of her going about on her scooter with the dress flying in the wind-reminded me of Lancaster....You just have to imagine it with this pic (the van sort of ruins the image!lol)
Doesn't she look adorable and really suit the image? Happy b'day again Keri and I am so glad you had a lovely time at your party, your mum is quite the party organiser!
I have been making some progress with my Christmas 'heart to Hand' quilt. All the blocks are finished (until I spy something I have left out) and I am working on the borders now. Sorry I couldn't get great shots as I had no models to hold it up for me, when photographing.
We had another momentous occasion in our household.....babe started primary school!
Just look at all the size of this wean going to school.....here is all three ready to head out for another years study. I can't believe summer is over and the routine has begun!
Thanks again for taking the time to share with us here and hope you all have a great week,
