Civil War gift my neighbor made for her Dad for Father's Day and a 2nd birthday for my little Grandson
This is my talented and sweet neighbor Connie. She made this wonderful wallhanging for her Father for Father's Day. He is a Civil War buff. The detail in this is wonderful and she mixed wools with cottons and the tent is another fabric and the details are things. It is wonderful and I hope my photograph skills which aren't the best do her justice. She is much prettier than the photo I took and I should have taken more than one. I started a neighborhood quilt bee here and invited the neighbors I knew who quilted. I realized yesterday they all start with a "C". Connie, Cindy, Cathy,Carrie and Carol. How weird is that? They may start their own Bee and get rid of Mary Lou who does not fit. :0) Anyway, it is fun and it makes me happy so many neighbors quilt.
Blowing out the candle and Dad helps from the background. :0)
This was the birthday scene yesterday with my little Grandson on his second birthday. His Father is a man's man and he adores his Dad. We bought him a ball glove and he instantly grinned when he opened it.We also bought him his own tackle box with worms, hooks and bobbers in it. I soon learned I could have saved alot of money and just bought a dozen bobbers. He was entranced!
Now it is time to get back to sewing and working on the book I am doing with Mel. It is alot of work but it is really fun showing what getting "out of the box" can do.
Hope you are enjoying this wonderful month too.
