Sewing Time

This is what I have been working on. Getting things made for the Railroad Festival. I think I will add them to my website also. I am making prairie dolls using a pattern from Sweet Meadow Farms. I love here patterns. Just ordered another one to make with cats and pumpkins. I can't wait to do that one. Below is some finished stumpy prairie dolls that I made. I am working on the ones with legs now. Love how they turned out.

The Day Off!

This is what keeps me so busy. I watch my grandbabies Monday-Saturday. They are a handful. The baby is 9 months old and into everything. She discovered the piano yesterday and now will not leave it alone. Lots of  noise. lol Her brother is almost 4. Sadly, he did not get into Pre-K in September. I will try to work with him here. There is a 100 kid waiting list in their city, so that will not be happening. And his dad is a deadbeat so my daughter can't afford to put him in a paid Pre-K. In a way, I am glad I get to spend another year with him every day. 

Today is my day off from watching the kids. Doesn't seem to happen often these days. Love them to death, but love to have time to myself. So I think I will get crafting!
