Warning >slightly picture heavy !
Today is my hubby's birthday and I want to wish him the best day possible .I will be making him his favorite meal of pinto beans,cornbread and fried potatoes.Not my favorite ,but it is his birthday. LOL! He has work today so we will be doing something together over the weekend.We haven't decided on a game plan yet ,but we will think of something I am sure. Just going for a drive together and enjoying the scenery is a favorite way of spending our time. Happy Birthday Sweetie!
I wanted something patriotic for my dining room but couldn't find anything that really suited me locally .So I decided to try and make something . Here is what I have came up with so far.I am not crazy about it but it will do in a pinch.I used a few odds and ends that were lying around home to make it.I still need to add a flag to the center .
And here it is sitting in my trencher on my dining room table.
I have also been admiring all the wonderful bonnets that you ladies have been displaying so I thought I'd try making one.First I will tell you I can sew ,just not real well. I would love to be able to sew as well as my momma but it probably isn't ever gonna happen. Lets just say that a few prayers for patience and forgiveness for my cross tongue have been said the last few days .LOL! I am going to share my endeavors with you so remember I am making the pattern out as I go and learning by my many mistakes. I have one bonnet that I used as a visual reference but I sketched my own pattern.Why must I be so stubborn? It would be so much easier to buy a stupid pattern .But oh no,I have to declare that I will figure it out ,or run out of fabric trying to get it right.I have always been this way ,never one to bend once I set my mind to the task at hand .I have always thought that if someone else can do it then I should also be able to do it .My goodness but that has gotten me into trouble a time or two.LOL ! Good thing primitive doesn't have to be perfect.
A short style bonnet.
Here are the longer ones that I made the past few days. This is not where they will be staying .
I really like the striped bonnet and I used it to make this display this morning.
Well I am sure that I have bored you long enough so I will sign off for now .I just want to leave you with this thought ...Your dreams are only as good as your ambition .Blessings,Jen
