My Little Valentine....

  First, I'd like to say thanks for those of you that left comments on my last post. It has been a really tough week after the loss of our beloved friend.
 Friday evening we had a gathering at our home for all of her friends per request of her husband, sister, and MIL. I think it really helped all of us including her family to join together and share stories of our sweet Jay Dawn.

 I had made Shelby this little skirt for her Valentine's Day party.  The pattern is "Dancer" by Ellie Inspired. I really like the style, but the 3 layers got a little bulky, and it wanted to sag. The part I love about it is that is has shorts underneath. If I make it again, I will only do one skirt layer and the shorts. Shelby is getting to the age where little girls like skirts so I know she'll be wanting more.

  I covered a headband to match - which she loved!
  Now here is my Little Valentine! My sweet grands really lifted my day on Tuesday.  Oh the innocence of a child!
 I love the picture below. I know this girl would have loved to have had that whole box of cookies to herself. That is her favorite kind. It is just hilarious to watch her eat one of these or a cupcake! A girl after my own heart! LOL
 Thanks for stopping by. I do appreciate your visits.

Hey Shirley! Maybe I need to get you to teach me how to applique and embroider!! I'd save a bunch of $! Do you sell your stuff?
