Real Talk - A new day!

Thank God for a new day, a new week. Another chance to get it right. When people affect your life, negatively or positively - choose to draw what helps you from the relationship. Make it work for YOU. It's easy to take the positive, but use the negative as a learning tool. Learn about the person and then learn about yourself. What are you willing to tolerate?

Another sweetsixteen

This the Birthday girl in her second dress. I used Butterick #5323 view A. There are jewels on the waistband - I glued and sewed them on.
Me and the Birthday girl.

These are the girls from her court. The dresses are made from Butterick # 5457 view E. The pleats in these dresses gave me a problem but once I did the first 2 , it was full steam ahead.
Oh, the young lady second from the left is my daughter.

Unfortunately , I didn't get a good shot of the first dress, i used Mc Call #6029.

Good Day everyone

It's been ages since I have been on my blog. I have been sewing and looking at other blogs. But, mainly I have been taking care of my son , he had open heart surgery on May 24th. The operation went well, with minimal complications. He is now on the mend - he is 19 and thinks he is superman, but his body is telling him otherwise, lol.
The surgeon said "it's was the biggest defect I've ever seen", I am giving God thanks that it was found and could be repaired. I meet several people at the hospital who had children that needed new hearts , one as young as 7 months old. For them I am praying also.

I will be posting some pics soon.

Until then - peace.
