Monday Update .......

Real clever title for this post huh?  I haven't blogged much lately.  I have been busy and have several finishes, but not much time for blogging.  

First, my greatest accomplishment (well, ok, my daughter's accomplishment, but let's not split hairs ok?) 

Miss Ivy Rose
7/29/14 - 4:50 pm
6 lb 10 oz - 19 inches

Gabbie-Lou-Who loves her.  

She (and her parents) came to church with us today and afterward to lunch at my mom and dad's.  Gamma got lots of rocking time while her momma and daddy ate their lunch.

I've made matching dresses for Ivy and Sadie. 
(This is Sadie's, I've already gifted Ivy's) 

And my newest project   .... A whole herd of elephants!!
I am addicted to these creatures!!
(They are made from this pattern from Sweetbriar Sisters for Camelot Fabrics)

  5. Congratulations, Grandma! How exciting! Thanks so much for sharing the cute pics of your newest family member, Paula. How nice to be able to spend Sunday together in the Lord's house. Your sewing time was also well spent. Such a pretty dress.... And those elephants are simply adorable!

  6. Congratulations on the new addition to the family, and those elephants are completely adorable. I think my favorite is the green and grey and black one, but the flowers with thte light blue ears comes in a close second.

  8. Love your herd of elephants! Too cute. Congrats on the new grandbaby. She is adorable.
