Whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is gracious, if there is any excellence and if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.(Philippians 4:8)

FAIRly Good Weekend

What a fairly wonderful weekend!

I hope your was half as productive as mine!

I used the Sweetwater Pure Canvas for this stool, which I've wanted to recover for I don't know how long.  Yay me!!


Made this beauty for myself...

Asked my very Dear LQS owner for fabrics a bit out of my comfort zone and have to say, I'm doing okay with this ... for now, or until I find a friend of mine that adores it ...
and it'll be her's just like a few others in the recent past ...
Gives me an excuse to make more, now doesn't it!

I know the pictures are off the mark, but I promise better when Miss Em has it on in the morning!
 I did this dress for her today ... another Oliver + S pattern and she picked out the fabrics ...

Really enjoyed this picture of the dress with arms and legs, but no head ...
the model is holding it for big sis, who's in bed where she belongs tonight ...

The girls were in the driver's seat ... literally :) ... on Friday as I took them to the County Fair:

Of course, they ran (and rode) circles around me ...

And what mother can resist the "please, please, please" plea to a little face paint :) 

Especially when it matched their very first snow cones so perfectly!!

All in all, the girls and I ... had a wonderous day! So wonderful in fact ....

I believe I accomplished my goal of giving them
a day to remember for a very long time!!

I know they gifted me with wonderful memories :)

The girls were plum wore out on the way home ....

Good night and I thank you for visiting!!

Please come again!

And ... please don't forget to visit
remember, if you win, I win too!

:) and you all know I love me some prizes!!

:) LOL :)

Love, hugs, and all things silly!!
