I found this on FB it's a photo of a Russian Penguin. I bet you didn't know we have some of these way up north in Alaska. It's a well kept secret in order to preserve them but I thought posting on my blog would be okay as not that many see it.
Pastor a couple Sunday's ago was preaching on relationships and made this statement, "If you really want to show your wife you love her, take her to the Opera" Here is Bob Thursday night in Homer Alaska at the opera with me! Bet you didn't know we had opera in Homer. Click on the opera link above to see!! Oh I wore a black cape lined in crimson I made in the 70's. Didn't get a shot of that. As we left the theatre that night we both promply flopped on the ice!
Sewing projects have been going on hot and heavy here! Courtney and I are working on the same projects now, she is so talented! We both made this blouse from Gertie's sewing book called The Bowtied Blouse. Both of us had problems with the collar being too small. Mine is of a stretchy heavy cotton, a really beautiful lush fabric.
This cute PJ holding dog Courtney made. She had one as a child just like it. She put her old dog inside of this new one! He came out so cute I have one cut out myself in white with red dots.
The next Gertie project is this lace blouse. I have it cut out and will work on this today, my fabrics being from the Russian shop. Courtney is going to be making the identical blouse. I work slightly ahead of her as to weed out the problem areas with the assembly.
Gnomes spotted in Safeway. The gnomes below I found on Pinterest and have made one similar in the past and want to make another. Cute huh! There is a tutorial here to make these cuties.
I close with a shot of Kalen relaxing in his Dad's chair on one of my quilts!
