And so it has come to pass, my darling little girl is now a high school graduate. The ceremony was beautiful, if lengthy. Senator Richard Blumenthal was the guest speaker, and he gave a wonderful speech, I didn't even mind that it was so hot and muggy in that gym. I am so proud. I was overcome with emotions, I think this picture says it all:

Thanks for tuning in, come again

p.s. I am wearing the ever popular Vogue 1250 that everyone has made. I will be posting about that with more pics at a later date.

Bloglovin, claiming my blog.......

I have no clue if I'm doing this right, but here goes...

It"s Been Long Time...

Hi all, I have been sewing, even though I've been neglecting the blog thing. It's been a very busy past few months, with proms and graduations.... Lots and lots of sewing, including lots and lots of fails, but life goes on and we learn from our mistakes, right?!? Well, some of us anyway....

I will start blogging regularly again, starting with the prom dress, as soon as graduation is comfortably in my rear view. Here is a lil preview:

I can't believe my darling little girl is graduating high school and will be heading off to college in the next few months. Look at this little face:

This is what I see when I look at her, no way this little girl is ready to go out into the world...  Although, the girl in the previous pics looks like she's ready to grab the world by the balls. All I can do is stand aside and let her try. Roots and wings, I keep telling myself. Roots and wings.

Thanks for stopping by,
