It's Time to Party! Tuesdays with a Twist

Our News This Week...  This weekend was our family decoration at the cemetery for my Daddy's side of the family.  It always seems kind of bittersweet.  I am happy to see everyone who gets to come, but I am lonely for the ones who are gone.   The bouquets I created worked very well and looked quite nice if I do say so myself.  If you would like to see my tutorial for silk memorial arrangements, just click HERE.


 These beauties are Amaryllis Belladonna!  One of their common names is "Naked Ladies".

Tuesdays with a Twist Link Party

Our News This Week...  I've sewn two more nap mat covers for little girls skipping off to Kindergarten.  They are pretty easy, but a tutorial will be coming soon.  I guess the plastic cover that comes on the mats can be uncomfortable and kind of scratchy?  The last two covers were made with a super soft flannel fabric in a pattern from Frozen.  Everyone loves Elsa and Anna, right?  ;-)




 These are Stargazer Lilies as they begin to fade.  I love all the different shades of magenta and pink!
