The big news is I am now retired. Not exactly by choice but I was laid off April 1st due to low oil prices. And I am soooo tired of the commute I decided to not look for another job.
We have had a new addition to the North of Nowhere family -- our 3rd grandchild, granddaughter #2. She is a sweetie and loves her brother and sister.
Granddaughter #2 is six months old in the photo that was taken by her mother. Her mom is quite a talented photographer!
This is the picture from the Magazine:
The magazine version had embroidery on the organza overdress but after trying briefly to replicate that I quickly gave up the idea thinking I would simply ruin the organza and have to start over on that layer. I really did not think it detracted at all from my version of the dress.
I've not chosen my next sewing project yet. I have so MANY Many many UFO's (unfinished objects) from the years of working that it might be hard to chose one!!
Next project on the list is to start a garden! I want to do something in raised beds and am thinking about using some of the old leaky stocks tanks we have just laying around for the bed planters. I have one friend who has tried this and says they work great!
Will keep you all posted!
