APOLOGY 
(I forgot to announce my Blog Hop winner on the 11th)
SHARON VROOMAN
Suggested I use Vintage Dress Patterns for my Theme and frame some on my wall.!  I loved ALL of your suggestions but I had pretty much thought of most in my sewing room design.  Framing the Dress Patterns I had not thought of and I Loved the idea.  One other comment was close to this suggestion but actually Framing the dress patterns was the one idea I had not considered.  
Thank you Sharon.
You have won a
$25 Gift Certificate from Fat Quarter Shop
I have emailed Sharon and am waiting for her email address reply.

INDOOR FLAG FLYING TODAY

WAVING MY FLAGS



My Patriotic Flag.
(The true colors are a much richer red, brighter royal blue)
There are 64, 3x4, rectangles sewn and folded into this star! I started this project at my Sassy Sewer Retreat in January not knowing what I was going to do with it.  I decided to add borders and make a flag for my front entrance.  I have yet to add the laminate to both sides.  I found the laminate at my local Hancock Fabrics.

A closer look at each fold.  The pattern is found at Moda
Fancy Folded Star.

#2

GET  DRESSED
This design is in part from a dress pattern given to us by Madame Samm 
approximately 4 yrs ago.  
I loved the dress patterns but never got around to using them until now.  Since I am remodeling my large dining room into my new sewing room, I like the idea of using this dress pattern as part of my room design... Oh yes, there will be MORE of these!

Rainy days don't make for great photos...sorry!
Check out the background fabric I found....Looks like the instructions inside a dress pattern.  Hmmm....I'm getting some new ideas even as I post these pictures...I can envision some painting on one of my walls using this idea???  Are you with me??  Any good sewing room ideas?  
BRING 'EM ON!!

MAKING A MARRIAGE LAST OR....

HOW TO KEEP THE HOME FIRES BURNING

Tractor Man came inside THIS AFTERNOON to deliver these....
Y'all, he looked just like a little 9 yr. boy bringing his girlfriend a bouquet of just picked flowers!
My Heart went Pitter Patter...even after 41 yrs.
(note to young couples:  this is HOW you keep the home fires burning thru the good and the bad)


So many young couples ask my husband and I just HOW we have stayed together for 41 yrs.  I tell them that marriage takes a love of God, work, time together, and LOTS of laughter.  A Bouquet of fresh picked yellow Daffodils from the farm are more priceless than Two Dozen Roses from the fanciest Florist in town!!!

Men, THIS HOW it's Done!!

I'm a Lucky Lady!

Blessings


Don't Forget me and my blogging friends on Monday to see what we've come up with for
