Here is the day we have been waiting for....................you will like!
Today I wrapped Clarice's Vintage Apron #97 (because that is how old she is) in a
beautiful piece of wrapping paper that a sweet friend wrapped a gift for me and gave
it to me (thank you Becky) this last week. I saved it because I new I would use it
for someone special! Clarice seemed to be the one. When I went to the manor I first
took my momma a bouquet of columbine flowers. They were beautiful. I also got to
feed her some of her dinner. That is always a special time. After I spent time with
Momma I went down to Clarice's room. I think she was very excited to see her package. I told her that she was going to get something soon the last time I saw her.
Here is her gift all wrapped up!
This is my special friend Clarice. She said I could take pictures, just not from the front. Do you see her adorable hair? She is the cutest lady ever and I wish you could all come and meet her. She is looking at her card.
She told me that I did a very nice job and that it was pretty. She loved the color combinations and the fabrics. I was so glad. It made my heart smile. She said that she didn't deserve it. I told her she did! She said I could take a picture from her side. Do
you see she has her other apron on? Cutie!
Look at her precious hands. I don't know why I like hands so much, but I do. Those little hands have done a lot of "stitches" in their day!
We put her apron on. She looked adorable. We talked. She said that she learned how to sew when she was 7. She made a dress for her doll. Oh my, I wish I could see that today. She said that I should take some pictures of her quilts. Here they are. She said that she has made lots more, but they are with her family. Wow, what a special lady. I am so thankful she is my friend. Did I tell you that we are related? I could sit
for hours with her. She said that she had made a Grandmother's Flower Garden (a block
like I made her pocket) Quilt years ago, but thought it was with her family. One of my
Miss Clarice made this crazy quilt with feather stitches on every seam. It was so pretty on her bed. She cut each piece individually, she said and didn't use a pattern.
Clarice thought it would be okay to put a picture up on my blog of her baby quilts. This is the first one. She did all the quilting. Isn't it sweet?Along the sides there are little embroidered flowers and leaves. She is so talented.
This one has been hand appliqued with all the little images all over the quilt. The words are all hand embroidered. Amazing work! Should of taken a picture up close. I will try to do that next time, so you can see the detail.
It was a very special time with Miss Clarice. She asked me questions about when I started sewing and was anyone else in my family interested in what I did. I will treasure the time I had with her. She is a very special friend. She misses her family, so now I will be her family. Claris liked that I had a big family.
If you want to leave Miss Clarice a note, please do. I am going to take my computer in so she can see the blog posts. I will show her the comments, if there are any. She would love it! I tell her all about you!
After I got home our son's family said they were coming out to bring our granddaughters horse Sugar to the pasture. We all went down and I took some
pictures. I thought some of the children who look at my blog might want to see what we found.
Is he the coolest bull frog? Our son caught him at the edge of the creek so he could show him to his children. All my boys are like their father. My honey brought home “everything from the field”, so his kids would have an appreciation for animals. They do!
This little caterpillar was hanging on for dear life. The wind blew so hard today. He is a fuzzy wuzzy is he not?
Poppa found the snake for the children. He is always finding snakes!! I don't mind the little ones, just not the big ones.
Our grandson wanted the kids to see how the snake wrapped his tail around his finger.
I shot this picture of the storm that was coming in. It was so beautiful.
We call the clouds (when they look like this on the horizon) "Kansas Montains".
We are off to the zoo this friday. Our grandson invited us to be his chaperone. It will be a special day for Grammie and Poppa.
Everyone have a wonderful weekend!
Blessings to you all!
