Works in progress.......

Here we are another stormy weekend... When will this end? And now they're saying another storm mid-week. Gotta love living in New England. Had a nice surprise visit from the kids and my favorite little "twinkies". It was like a storm blew through here but I love it. I think you've heard me say before I just can't get enough of them. Here is a picture that little Miss "O" staged.



She got both Baby and Teddytogether and said " Memere need take picture." A buddy photographer. She's quite the gal. My Works in Progress. Sometimes I think I'm a little ADD cause I get antsy with a project and then get on to something else. I've been working on a couple of things... an embroidery design for one of my little girls. I plan on framing it, maybe a little white frame so they can put it in their room. I really like this little girl. This is actually my second one, the first one I ruined after all the work went into it. And absolutely cannot use it. Also making …

Sweets.........sweets........sweets.

Yes, today is all about  sweets. I had my little Valentine get together on Saturday and my sweet little grandchildren were here to celebrate. I wanted to make it special for them so I got the decorations out and got them set out. I had some fun things ready for them. Lunch was pizza that I formed into hearts and  let them top their own. It was a bit messy but they had a great time.
Lots of pepperoni and abundance of cheese! So how sweet are those pizzas! Oh yes and they had salad with little heart cucumbers which they love! After dinner we made some heart necklaces and they did such a good job. Of course they included one for Grammie and one for Memere. These little people bring so much joy to my life I can't get enough of them! And now for the other Sweet thing! OMG! its the DuncanHeinz321cake I now know that I did see it before on my girl Cathy's blog but didn't know what it was. Boy I sure do now and Love it! If you're not familiar with it be sure to check it out on line. The directions are 1 …

Hearts....hearts and more hearts.

I don't really have much to post today but I did want to take this opportunity to wish everyone a Happy Valentine Day. Not sure what all this crap is about but...whatever! I'm having the family over on Saturday so we can have a little celebration...mostly for the kids. I'm planning on having a pizza party for them. Making the pizza out of the large english muffins.....that's because Little Miss "V" has a food allergy and the muffins are what she can eat. So I'll shape them into hearts and then they can add the sauce and toppings of their choice. Also going to make cupcakes and other goodies. I'll cut out a bunch of paper hears and some straws and they can string them  on yarn to make heart necklaces. I think they'll enjoy that. Not sure what I'll make for the grown-ups to eat I guess I'll have to give that some thought. Both my children will be here with their families and I am soo looking forward to that. The little ones don't get to see each other of…

Storm clean-up..............................................

Image
Everywhere you look....today is clean-up day. This storm has really created a mess for everyone. Gonna be a chore to get out the front door. With this amount of snow at the cottage door I sure hope it melts before the vacationers get here. Hubby's been out there today since 9:30am and didn't come in till 2:30pm. He said he'll tackle this tomorrow. I think we're expecting rain on Tues. so we hope to get most of this cleared up. Me? Well I've been staying busy making ruffled skirts for the girls. The first one is complete and now working on the second. This is nearly done. I also have plenty of fabric that I'm thinking I'll make more skirts with. I like how I can really switch up the colors and the patterns. Princess "A" asked me if I could make her a skirt with the fabric that has the "cupcakes" on it....I sure hope this is the fabric she's talking about. I think these combinations are so cute. Before I say Good Bye...I'd like to thank those of you …

We found Nemo!......................

Image
For those looking to find Nemo! We now know where he is...right here in Southern Maine....at 6pm this evening with the temps at 14* and roughly 7 inches of snow the weather man is saying the storm has not even started yet. Yikes! Just does not seem right...way too cold for all this snow.
My neighbor and I have this on going "thing" about his snow-plow. I can always tell if we're expecting a real amount of snow or if we'll get just a dusting because he won't put on the plow for just a dusting. So on Thursday morning I went over and added some warning tape across the front of it. That was my way of telling him we don't want this snow they're predicting..... so when he got the chance he left me a little note as well..... I guess it's out of our hands. So NEMO has arrived. So since I'm going to be stuck in the house I decided that I'd start on a couple of ruffle skirts for the girls. I have some really cute fabric....black, red and white that have cherries…

Bags........................and Wool!

Image
Here I am back again and still not feeling myself. This cold/flu has really taken its tole on me. Been way too long now. Even resorted to a Hot Toddy last night. mmmm. Not too bad so I might just have another tonight. I have completed a couple of items thought. The bags for the twins are done.
The one for my little Buddy is showing the front and the back. I plan on using these for their Valentine gifts. The other Grands already got theirs and they use them for school. Of course Little Miss "V" has already been in a little trouble because she snuck some candy in hers and brought it to school. That's too funny....gotta love her! My friend JoyC brought me some wool pants that were her husbands so I could cut them up and make winter bermudas out of them. The wool is perfect. When I started cutting them apart I decided to make a "wrist let" for her out of part of the leg. I think it came out well. The pants were actually kind of cool. They had these buckles on th…
