Cool weather is great!

The girls and I had a great trip to Sonoma and Napa Valley. We had many laughs and memories that I will cherish forever. I am working on several orders for Christmas and hoping to get a few more on Etsy. I am going to post a few of my sewing projects that I have recently sold to customers. I love my new Baby Lock monogramming machine, it makes things go so much faster. Well I have 3 weeks and then I have another holiday and I can't wait...the good thing about teaching is the long vacation time. I hope you have a great week and stay warm.

Middle Child's Birthday and sewing fun

Today is my son Matthew's 25th birthday....my time flies! Today was a chilly and misty day here in Southeast Texas. I cooked Cornish hens and rice for dinner and it was delicious. I haven't cooked that in a long time. My mom, sister and I went to the Nutcracker Craft Show in Houston yesterday and I had a fun day out with those two.

Today I made a couple of new things for my Etsy Shop and worked on my booth in Jasper. Just 5 more days until Linsi, Haley and I fly out to Sonoma and Napa Valley. This is my first trip to California and I am pretty excited about it. We will be gone for about 3 days and then back for Thanksgiving and family time. Here is a look at the new shirts that I have added to Etsy. If you have a chance visit my shop:nwalkercreations "The Pink Door".

What a week!

Wow...glad this week is over! I got sick on Weds. and really didn't feel better until Saturday. The stomach virus was going around at school and I had to catch it. I went to Dallas to visit my kids and pick up Fisher, my son's dog. Finn, my dog has been enrolled in training school and will be gone for at least a month. Fisher has a tumor and we are going to hopefully get his surgery scheduled and get him on the mend. I had a great visit with Linsi, Haley, Tanner, Matt, and Dallas this weekend. We always have lots of laughs and eat tons of good food. Since my tummy wasn't all that great I had soup at most stops.
I plan on sewing lots of new things this week so I will post what I make later. I did visit one of my favorite fabric shops while in Dallas. City Craft off of Lover's Lane some really nice fabric and patterns. I always find something to buy when I go there.
Linsi is busy making her cute baby shoes and other projects that she is selling. Haley is winding down the semester and has senior idis really bad...LOL. Matt is working and hunting.
I hope you have a great week and I hope have a better week than last week. God Bless and take care.
