When I last posted I was waiting for my transfer at work to come through and for them to find a replacement for me. I didn't think it would ever happen but on Thanksgiving Day I boarded a plane along with my little dog "Pepper" heading to Florida. My son picked me up at the airport and I was able to sit at the Thanksgiving table with my grandchildren for the first time in 4 years. So I am now living with my son and his family in sunny Florida. I love being around the kids on a daily basis again. I was fortunate enough to have enough vacation time until after Christmas so for the most part I have been extremely lazy.
I've been doing some embroidery and sewing. My granddaughter, Cierra takes a dance class at school and she asked me if I could make them hair bows. They are responsible for coming up with a dance and their own costumes for a grade. Of course I said yes ... although I have never made a hair bow. I searched online for a tutorial and found a video from mommycraftsalot. My bow isn't as pretty as hers but not bad for a first timer ... lol. Anyway .. they are calling themselves The Flamingos so I embroidered a covered button to add to the center. Here is the result:
I'm pleased but most importantly Cierra is happy with them.
When we arrived at the airport on Thanksgiving the flight was about 1/2 hour early so while we were waiting I couldn't resist taking a picture of Pepper. Boy was she glad to get here ... lol
Hopefully I will get out of vacation mode and start posting again. I am looking so forward to spending Christmas with the kids. And afterwards I hope to get back into some kind of routine. So until next time .. have a great day!!!!!
