Wonderful Birthday..Sunday Update

      Tuesday, we went to St. Louis.  Bri Z. fixed the best chicken and dumplings I have ever had. I didn't even want to know how she made them, it would spoil the illusion she had chickens in her back yard, and a little mill that she ground the flour in. They were better than my grandma's dumplings. We did eat out, but it could not compare with what she left me with when they went to the ballgame.  My grandson wanted me to have cupcakes, yum .I got a gift certificate to the new  Joann super store.  The store was so big that it would be impossible to really do it justice in a day.  The gift card was very generous and I came home with some left on it.  Back I go one of these days. Very nice time. My grandson is such a little gentleman, I am so proud of him.  I really am not just bragging,  my grand kids are so sweet and polite. I can't help let it spill out every once in awhile. Mom and dad took me out to dinner on my birthday. I got birthday cards, calls. I am sad its over. I need to take some pictures of the 2 mags and book I bought...I know, I know, but it was my birthday. I did get some buttons, and a very small knitting needle for cuffs.


               I never really thought I would like making these.  I was wrong. I  was gifted some its not thread yet its not yarn stuff.   The 4 balls I had were all different types of fiber. No way could I give them up. I had thought about Barbie clothes.  If I find a little girl in need of Barbie clothes, I could frog them, but for now they will grace my tables and Ya's dresser. The pink one has a silver metallic thread in it. They are my pretties

                                            Weapons of mass frill abuse;)
I am still rearranging my stuff.  I found my DD's bows.  I bought a new container.  Its not half of them. Each bow matched an outfit I made...yes I still have the dresses etc.  I made quilt blocks from the scraps. someday I will have to take pictures of a few.  I am kind of prideful of them... good fabric, french seams... a baby girl after 2 boys and many miscarriages...I was living a dream. The boys were her idols. My DD acted just like they did... including the boy walk....she was put in ballet for years it worked, then she walked like a duck...just kidding Megs.  I have to tease my baby.

Well, this week may someone see all the good you do, and appreciate your generous spirit. And then sing a silly song and twirl bet it makes you smile. Hugs to my dears.
