Back to sewing

It's been quite a few months that I have used my sewing machine, so much else going on.

Here's a few pieces I have done in the last two weeks:

A dress made of a tweed like fabric.

Up close

Dusters seem to be making a comeback and I wanted one to go with nice jeans and dress boots.  The ones I saw were pricy so I'm making one. I love vintage looking fabric so I chose this one.

Everything is done but the armholes.

My grandmother Jewell's pincushion sit's by me for inspiration!!!

Hope you find inspiration this week to create what you like!!

October in Kansas City

While in the car yesterday (hubby driving) I took several shots of the city.  October is suppose to be quite a bit cooler but I still feel the cool breezes.

The golf courses are still plenty green.

Sunflowers blowin in the wind.

But we do have some trees turning.

Autumn is my favorite season but all the weather experts are saying we are suppose to have lots of snow this year.

My grands love to go to McDonalds, sometimes eat there. Here is the decor in one that just redecorated.

They know Papa had a 1957 blue Chevy so they liked this one. OH he wishes he still had it.

Vinyl seats and everything. Love the records and yes we still have boxes of them!!!

Are you ready for some spooky?

My Sonic always decorates their restaurant with fun spooky Halloween, nothing evil.

Notice the blue sky this October morning!!!!! I'ts cool out here but bright.

When our children were little I put plenty decorations out for Halloween, not so much now but I like seeing cute decorations up everywhere else.

Keep the candy coming!!

It's midweek  and it's ABC Wednesday.  My daughter and her family just got back from a football game in  Baton Rouge, Louisiana.  They had a merry time  in the  French Quarter and eating all the great food.

Granddaughter #1 saw a telephone booth (a minute in history) and had to try it out. I got a phone call that said phone booth. That was a new one for me.  Mom had to capture it.

LSU tigers beat the Missouri tigers so it was a great outcome in their eyes.

Fall pink

Fall is my favorite time of year, love wearing a sweatshirt, football games and the wonderful cool air.  This is the time of the year sedum plants bloom and I have a couple in different parts of the yard.

Spent a few hours on our deck this morning enjoying the 60 degree weather and drinking coffee along with my cell phone to snap pictures.

Here's to Beverly at PINK SATURDAY our hostess for this meme I've been contributing to for going on eight years. It's been  so much fun.

Little sister

We are on letter L this week and I have a few sister pics to show.  My little sister Lori and I share a great relationship.  She is 14 years my younger and was my flower girl in our wedding.

She has grown up to do great things, she is a Nurse Practitioner in the cancer field. Her specialty is  Breast cancer and ministers with her healing hands to many women who are suffering this horrendous disease.

Here we are at a benefit (Treads and Threads) for Breast Cancer at the Kansas Speedway.

Along with taking care of her patients, she lectures all over the country on Breast Cancer preventative care.

 I am the lone one in white.

Lori also has 7 grandchildren, very active in our church and is a wonderful gal to share this life with.
