Love the drying rack, love the dress, love the quilt. You are fabulous.


You are so cute! Your dress and quilt are just darling. BTW- Would you like a hoop for embroidery/quilting that is quite large and has a floor stand? Somebody gave it to Rick and it's been sitting in my craft room unused for too long. He suggested I see if you'd use it.


JOANN that DRESS is amazing!!!!!!

Great drying rack. Absolutely LOVE the dress. Fabric is amazing. I need a maternity version of that exact dress :-)

I.LOVE.YOUR.DRESS!! You are one very talented lady, Joanne. Mine would NOT look like that, sewn or worn :) I read the comment above...I too would need a maternity version and am about 9 1/2 months out of maternity...hee hee!

I also love the fabric displayed...a great motivator.

'Hope you had fun at the pool!
I'll try to call tomorrow afternoon. VBS is going great, so great I took a 2 hour nap today.
Love ya!


What a great retro dress... and the girls did a fabulous job arranging the quilt squares! Looks like they definitely have their mama's talent!


Now you need to borrow my Beth Moore bag since it matches the fabric of your dress!


cette robe est absolument magnifique ! et elle te va à merveille ! je suis épatée !
le plaid en patchwork est très mignon aussi - il a du rendre cette petite fille très heureuse !
félicitations (pour les deux)!


Like I said yesterday. You have inspired me. I am buying that pattern, because that is the cutest dress ever! I tool my first step towards sewing today, and bought some patterns and a sewing book. My husband will be thrilled that I am actually going to use my sewing machine that I just "HAD TO HAVE"!
