Do you use thread or fabric or a combination? My daughter suggested I use ModPodge if I was going to try this. I would like to make a picture of flowers or a floral field with tall grass. It just goes to show quilters are truly artists. So many people with so much talent! BJ, the quilts you make and your pictures show true talent.
Hello there.....I was just admiring the sun dress you made for your granddaughter. I was wondering if you used a pattern and if you would mind telling me where you got it.....it is so darn cute! I too have a granddaughter who is 4½ (Aubrey). She gets so excited when I finish a dress for her. Thank you! Marie
I'm still in awe that complete strangers are coming together to help make my wish come true...it brings tears to my eyes every time I think about it...you are amazing, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart!
The outfits you make for Miss Bailey are fabulous. I also make dresses for my DGD Amelia, and her dolls. I'm wondering if you'd be interested in some dress patterns for up to size 6. My Amelia is now into 7's so I am getting rid of some patterns (there are a few costume ones). Please let me know and I'll be glad to send them to you.
BJ I just remembered I can post a message here for you. I will go to the library to send a picture to you of my piece for the swap. Am having a hard time coming up with a name for it. Hope to think of one before posting it to you. Will also send my address to Ally. I had a lot of fun making this one and am happy with the results. I hope Denise enjoys it. Thanks for doing this swap. I do enjoy being a part of these. It's amazing to see the talent that everyone has. Can't wait to see all the different pieces!
Good morning! Thank you for your kind words on my owl quilt. I was so thrilled that my daughter LOVE IT! Now on to finishing a quilt for our youngest daughter and a play mat for our granddaughter out of the clothes the girls grew up in.
I pray you are having a WONDERFUL WEEKEND! Blessings to you!
dear bj, thank you for the kind note and hug. this is such a wonderful blog. it is the only one i belong to (bad grammar i know :) i feel very well. i am walking much more than i could before and hope to continue on my wellness journey in this way.
i have been following your posts and admire your resilience and ability to pick up and move when you need to. your new environment sounds wonderful. i imagine you have some beautiful surroundings. as long as the financial stress is under control. i will retire as of the end of Nov. I am sad about it but the past year has not allowed me to keep up the pace needed for teaching kids. I hope to do some tutoring in the community which pays well and keeps me working with kids which i love. not so big on the math but i love teaching reading LOL.
wishing continued success in your new move and endeavours. p.s. i love your sewing gifts for bailey and hope i can do that too some day (for my own gbaby, not yours LOL).
Yes, by all means get flood insurance! I live on the Sacramento River, which is deep and cold and deceptively placid in the summer, but in rainy season, it can get wild, even with the big dam upstream. We've never had a claim with our flood insurance, but I would never not have it! My rose garden was flooded one year and our three-sectioned composter disappeared somewhere downstream.
