Upside Down! A Great Big Smile! & What's Next?

I took this picture of the reflection of the flag in a small lake in a park near my house this morning. This lake has a walking path around it that is one mile long. I will tell you more on my Fat Fighting Friday post about this park, the lake, and this walking trail. This reflection is pretty amazing, I thought.

Here's Lil E in her Easter dress. Her mom posted this picture on Sunday. The green band on her leg is an id bracelet that her church uses in the nursery. The church they attend is THAT big!!! In my church there are only a few little ones and everyone knows them all! It makes me feel good that they take such measures to assure the kids' safety at their church.

Yesterday, I mentioned that my next project is to make a couple of dresses for my friend's niece from some heirloom pillowcases. Here is a picture of the pillow cases, fabric that I am going to make an under dress, and the pattern that I am going to "kind of" go by to make this first dress. My friend wants a pinafore over a dress. I will probably make the pinafore longer, with the crocheted flowers coming right to the edge of the hem of the underdress. I am also going to change the top of the pinafore.

In my stash I have these crocheted flowers that are almost identical to the ones on her pillowcases. I couldn't believe that they were so much alike!! I am going to maybe use them on the bodice of the pinafore some way or other.

Gotta go get busy!!!

Anxious to see this new creation you are working on, of course, it will be gorgeous, too.

Nice picture of the flag reflection! Your E is adorable in her Easter dress. Her basket is almost as big as she is!
