I'm a good pouter.......

Actually I wrote the book on pouting, but he knows how to stop me from pouting, most of the time that is, by buying me something new! Such as a new Mantis tiller!! Wootwootwoot!!!
Now if he will just clean up that garden and get it all tilled for me I might feel better too.
You see I am pouting because I did not get to join in on my friends meeting each other in Missouri yesterday!
Terri and Brenda were not supossed to get together without thecannedquilter and I!
Pout, pout, pout!!!
My lip is really hung low enough to step on right now.
That's what my dad used to say when I was pouting and it would make me so much more pouty!
No REALLY I am so happy for them!
Seriously, happy for them!
Now if you don't believe me......
I just wish my stupid job hadn't got in the way of making a trip west to meet these great ladies too. There will be other trips, especially when we talk Terri into moving south!
Now to prove to you all that I am not ALL bad......
I have decided to get on the "Dress A Girl Around The World" train
and make some dresses to send to special little girls who may not otherwise have a pretty dress!
I surely have a stash of fabric that can be put to good use now.
These are pillowcase style dresses that are super easy to make and satisfy my cravings for a "quick sew project"......I have those cravings daily ya know?
Robin planted this little idea in my brain.
Go on over and look at her 3 beautiful dresses that she made in the past day or so.....getting ready to burst open with this new grandchild of mine too! Tuesday!! heheheehe

I didn't use a pattern, I just guesstimated and I think it's perfect for a girl about a size 7 or 8.

I used bias tape for the trim and ties.....easy peasy!

I plan to make several more.

Wanna join me?

I promise I will stop pouting......some day............maybe!

I am not a horrible person, no matter how much you think I am!

Should I be pouting too? Just wondering I need to know these things! Sister I beg to differ with you but I wrote the book on pouting. Just ask O Wise One. Hugs all around. Love the dress by the way : )

If I pout will Danny buy me a mantis tiller, too?? Boo-hooo-hooo!!! Can he hear me yet???! If it makes you feel any better.... I really wish we could have met up with you, too, Becky~ but it was still sooooo great to meet Brenda, and Tonia, and see her goats and her farm and her cheese and bring home one of her beautiful little bucks to expand my herd next year and give her a big ole hug and..... oh sorry, that didn't help:)))) hehehehehe! Love you girlfriend~ Terri

You guys are the best! I wish I could reach through the computer and give you all a big squeeze!

I just thought I'd share with you that I'm enjoying a salad with some of the blue cheese that I made last summer crumbled on it. It is so good! I'm glad I love cheese. :D

I love that new tiller too. I always wanted one of that kind.
