Kamies' Fitting

This is Kamies' "before" fitting. She didn't want that dress on but as soon as I put it on she knew she was beautiful!! She loved it! I ended up cutting 9" off the bottom. Kadee has one just like it........for Uncle Seth's wedding in June. They are the flower girls. Heidi wanted mid-calf length and the dresses only came in even sizes. Kadee wears a 7 and got an 8 and Kami wears about a 2 and we got her a 4. Hopefully they can wear them next year for Easter or something. It also came with a wrap! They have sparkley necklaces to wear and I think they'll have a bow in their hair and maybe bare feet!! The wedding is at the Little Stone Church near Silver Lake. Reception here.......down the hill next to the pond. Pray for good weather!!

Odie's open house was yesterday and had a Hawaiian theme. Jenny was the token Hawaiian!

Here's Odie and her boyfriend, Anthony (or as Kami says "Ant-knee"!) Mom and Evan got in on it too~

Kami was exhausted after a long day and didn't want me to go home for some reason! I'll bet she slept good last nite! Today is Sr. skip day so Odie and friends went to the movies. Graduation is Fri the 28th. She's going to become a CNA and hopefully start her nurses traing at MCC in the fall.

The latest quilt projects.....

My 3 youngest grand kids didn't have Christmas Stockings so I made them for Gage, Kami and Skylar. They have a picture of Santa on each side. This is both sides of Gage's. The girls already have theirs.

I finally came up with a project for the hand dyed/painted fabrics that we did so long ago. I love how this turned out!! I needed something for my knitting.

This is the quilt I made for Seth and Heidi.......Don's brother who is getting married in June. I gave it to her at her shower yesterday.

It starts out as 9" sqs, sew them into circles (including a layer of batting), trim then slit the front and turn right side out. When the assembly is done, so is the quilting! It's a great design! I'm not sure where she is going to wash it tho!

It is actually square and fits a full bed like a spread. A queen or king will use it like a comforter size. It's quite heavy! Heidi loved it. She said she liked blue and/or green when I asked her what color. This was allot easier then trying to guess what shed like!

Here's the label.......
