Cheer Loudly

Northland Hospice 10K was a blast. Started out with a kid's one mile fun run. In the last 100 yards as they struggled towards the finish line, seeing the faces of those kids go from exhausted defeat to overflowing faith in themselves when they heard the crowd cheering them on, was very moving. Note to self, always cheer loudly, so that others can feel your faith.

Northland Hospice 10K

Just registered! 10K Saturday morning 7am, running in memory of my father. I love you Dad!

I am the one in the dress. (-:

Current Project....Butterick 5223...again.

This time in a blue linen with a round collar. Just love it. Buttons aren't attached yet, haven't made up my mind whether to go with 3 buttons, or just do 1 at the top and let it be a short swing jacket.

DD summer dress

Sunday night, have to be up early for a 4:30 teleconference, so what am I doing? Sewing a summer dress for my DD. It went pretty fast and it is so darling. Just like her. It is Butterick 5179 and it was Fast and Easy just like it says.

I have been sewing for years. Yet I still feel like a beginner. Lately I have begun to actually wear more of the clothes I make, so I guess I must be getting better....or perhaps less picky...or perhaps my eyesight is worse than I thought...Here is my most recent creation. A loose fitting linen jacket, Butterick B5223. I just love the fit and the style. If I make it again, I might add an inch or two to the length. Such a serious face.... I must have been concentrating hard on the shot.

This is my first posting. I feel as if I am entering unchartered waters.... at least for me. Others have been doing this for years. I am a newbie.

I am off today, my daughter had dental surgery today. Wisdom teeth extraction and a bone graft. All in preparation for a permanent implant for her front tooth which was knocked out by a boy who pushed her down when she was 7, because he thought she was cute, and that is what 7 year old boys do to show their adoration.
