So enjoyed the sun today.  Like always it is a tease.  I was looking forward to mowing the yard and I started and the rain started.  Hear are some Easter pics we took yesterday.

Off to find fabric for monogramed pillowcases and towels.  I have decided that I am going to cut the pillowcase altogether and then sew them.  I think that they will go faster.  We will see how that works.

I truely believe that God is punishing me for something.  I havent seen the sun in ages.  I have been to two funerals this week.  Its been quite depressing.  I want to sew but cant get motivated to go in there and do it.  Hopefully over spring break I can get some sewing done.  I will take some pictures of some of the dresses then. Happy St. Patrick's Day!!!

A yucky Saturday.....

This morning I found out that one of our student's mother died of cancer.  The children were in 2nd grade and pre-k.  I just cant imagine the fear, loneliness, the sadness that these children are feeling. The last two day have had two friends ex-husbands  are tormenting their children.  Whats sad is that neither care about the children, its all about control.  This all makes my heart ache.

I did sew today.  I got four dresses done and bought a bias maker.  They turned out really cute.

Nothing done....

Spent time with great friends helping them clean things out.  We had dinner with my parents for Chloe's birthday (even if it was in February).  Great comfort food and our favorite red velvet cake.    YUM!!!  I will try to sew after school tomorrow.
