I know it has been a long time since I last posted but life has been busy. We celebrated my husband's 40th reunion at the Naval Academy, getting to see our grandkids at the same time. Followed by moving Sallie into her NYC apartment. Quite an adventure! And lastly flying to Texas to see our newlyweds, Jeff and Pan, in their new home and Danny's family in Austin. It was a great visit until I got deathly ill. I returned home to go to bed for 4 days. So that brings us to now...3 days before Thanksgiving. So much sewing to be done...but first I had to reorganize my sewing room (that has been accomplished). And now to plan out the rest of my sewing projects for the holidays. Here is the sweatshirt I designed for my Mother. I had fun putting this together. It includes her children, grands and greats. Quite a legacy! I love you, MOM! You are the Best!!
Here are some other items made in the last few months.This is a vinyl bag that folds up which I made for my daughter. Easy to tote around in your purse.

These are three bibs I made for Danny to wear during the Fall holidays. Cute!

I hope this week is a time to reflect on all we have to be thankful for. I am thankful for the love of my family and mostly the enduring love of my wonderful husband. Thanks for always being there for me. Happy Thanksgiving to All!! Daisy


  1. We love the dress Sallie! Thanks so much for thinking of Kherington. We'll send you photos soon.

  2. Hi! I just found your blog! Your work is beautiful. I especially love the smocking and embroidery work. I hope you will continue to post the things you make this year. Come visit me sometime at my blog too: I love to smock for children too when I have time! :)
