My brain today is one big jumble. I keep thinking of things I want to say, things I want to do,but there's this shakey feeling inside, and my mind skips about. The only time I feel calm is at Florence's grave side.
I want to tell you about the skirt I made this afternoon,but thankfully I think it speaks for itself. It's just a skirt for someone who is too fat to fit into most of her other winter skirts.

New skirt for a fatty

And on the fatty

I also want to tell you about Heather's wedding, been meaning to do that for a while. Suffice to say it was a gorgeous wedding,Heather was beautiful and I hope she and Gary will always be happy together.

Happy Couple

There's other "stuff" too, but like I said, my brain is a jumble.....

Don't be shy, say hello!


  1. Way cute skirt! I love it! And that wedding dress is, of course, amazing!

    Been thinking of you lately and will continue to pray for healing! <3

  2. Love the skirt (especially the buttons!)

    I've already commented on the wedding dress but it bears saying again. The dress is stunning and she looks beautiful!

    Take your time and be gentle to yourself.

  8. LOL Liz, as much as I love Heather's shoes, I think she might have some choice words for me if I tried to steal them!
    Cybele! that fabric is Dutch...you bought it for me from one of your trips a couple of years ago!
    Thanks everyone for your comments.

  9. I am so glad that you were able to attend the wedding and soak up all the wonderful compliments that the stunning dress deserved! Thinking of you and your family during this enforced return to the 'real world'.
