Cierra's Bow

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!!!!!
