Be our Guest

A layout of Jim's sister and her husbands visit to Ocoee, December 2009.  Papers are a mixture of Basic Grey, Love Elsie and unknown.  I made the little tree, adding sequins and beads, plus green mulberry paper to the right of the ribbon.  I used the extra Thickers to make star (or maybe they are snowflakes - use your imagination LOL) embellishments. 

thank you for stopping by.

Baby quilts

Baby quilts - I have been making baby quilts for several nieces and nephews and now for our great nieces and nephews.

I finished the top quilt for a great nephew, Liam; born June 2011..

The second photo is of two great nephews.  Connor was born March 15th 2010 and  his brother Carter was born May 28th, 2012.

This has been a busy year for babies.  I have 2 more quilts to make.  A great niece, Madeline was born  June 14 and another was little girl, Charlotte Ann on July 29th. 

Thank you for letting me share.

3rd grade

The third graders at Thornebrooke grew by several students the week before school was to start.  The staff had to make a decision to have the classes close to full capacity (18 in FL) and hope no one moves in during the year.  Or get another room ready.  They chose the second option.  They pulled 2 students from each class and put them in P20.  That makes 8 rooms of 3rd grades.  The school just keeps growing.  The teacher is TBA, they have a substitute until someone is hired.  Luckily Katie and her BFF, Taylor were both pulled and put in the class together.  Should be another interesting year.  The photo was taken at "meet the teacher" Friday afternoon. 

Have a wonderful 1st day Katie and Taylor - love you both!
