I finally glued the trim to the top of the trinket box.
Dare I say it? It's done!!!
I know that there are many mistakes in this but it was great way to learn by doing. I'll know better how to do things when it comes to my caskets.
My sons each gave me an Amazon gift card for my birthday and I have been having fun spending them. I had a running list of books that I wanted. I ordered several of them. One of them came in yesterday's mail. It was reviewed by Mary Corbet, Modern Folk Embroidery.
Love it. My friend Janet Brandt is just a master at this type of embroidery. I wanted a resource for stitches and designs. Wouldn't it be fun to putter all day, combining colors and stitches and just see what happens?
Here is sweet Claire in her Elsa dress. Don't you love the wig?
I am so happy with how the dress fits her. She is a real princess.
Evan is awfully cute too.
We have lived in our neighborhood for 38 years. All the children have grown up and gone. We had very few trick or treaters last night. Less than 20 even with the mild weather. Lots of candy is leftover.
How can it be November already??
