YOU ARE THE CREAM IN MY COFFEE


WHAT CAN I SAY ?
My sister Sarah Beth will be the recipient of this little bag.  I have been taking the cheap shopping bags from the various stores and "dressing them up" so to speak.  It's amazing what a little applique, ribbon, etc.. can do for something so cheap  economical.  I made a few with ruffles that were a big hit with some little girls I know.  I challenge you to get creative and see what you can make from a .99 cent bag.

These are zig zagged with red thread.  Next time, I think I will use Black for more contrast.


And last but not least...



I'm leaving tomorrow for a camping trip to a Bluegrass Festival Wedding!!  3 Bands, Food Trucks, hayrides for the children, and Bon-Fire at Night!!

My Nephew Daniel is throwing a party and relatives from all over the country are meeting at a beautiful Virginia campground to celebrate the wedding of Daniel and Stephanie!!
Daniel is an aerospace engineer that loves to play the Blues!!
This should be one fun wedding!!

Please join these other coffee lovers for a peak at their creativity
I'll be back with the schedule for today.


I'll be a Pickin' and a Grinin'
