I am feeling a bit homesick...

No comments:
(back to front)
Nov. 2006. My sister, Suzanne, her daughter, Brittnie, my daughter, Meri and me.
This was our last 'Sisters, Daughters, Aunts, Cousins' play date.
We spent the weekend in Pasadena, Calif...We shopped, we ate, we laughed till we cried and then we shopped and ate some more.....
I really do miss my family back in California. Not to mention the weather.
But am so blessed to be up here with my daughter, son-in-law and my 2 beautiful grandbabies.
Gary & I keep busy with work around the property,,,and right now we are up to our eyeballs
in trees, shrubs and other assorted plantings (5 truck loads) that need to be done around here.

Sewing, Sewing,Sewing

I bought these 2 patterns, only to realize that i had a similar pattern (5944) that i use to use when making sundresses for my daughter back in the 1980's...patterns haven't changed much, just the price! lol!
I came across this fabric a couple months ago,,,I just luv the whimsy fabric.
I still need to find the perfect buttons for this lil dress.
This is an easy peasy outfit that can be a top or dress. And once again,,,I luv the fun fabric.
It is such a cute wrap dress/top,,,,now why can't I make one for myself! lol! (back side)
The shorts match both outfits and can be worn with either outfit. (front side)
These outfits will be tucked into my suitcase & will travel with me back to Germany...
I am flying back to Heilbronn in April with my mom, we are taking a 'Mother~Daughter' trip back home to visit family & friends.
My childhood best friend, Irmgard has a Grand daughter, and these outfits are for her.
Now to get busy making some for my own Grand babies.
