Don't you just LOVE getting a new pair of shoes? Even if you have to wait a few months to wear them. Such as these gorgeous turquoise espadrilles. I just missed the auction by a few seconds on eBay, when I had a difficult time logging on. But then, found them at half price a couple of weeks later. They perfectly match fabric I have to make a casual top.

Isn't this the most adorable creature you've ever seen?

Finally, I sewed something!

I finally sewed something! I made matching outfits for a friend's daughter and her My Twinn Doll.
My friend picked out the patterns and the fabric. The top was made from Butterick 4970 in a soft
and cuddley pink rayon lycra jersey. The capris were made from McCall's 5312, in a cotton khaki twill.

President Obama

Initially, I was all for Hillary. But, then, as I listened and watched, I knew I was watching and listening to the next President of the United States of America.
There was never a doubt in my mind on whether or not Barack Obama would win. I had faith in my fellow Americans that they would make the right choice.
They did.
What an exciting time. Watching history in the making.
President Obama
Has a nice ring to it, doesn't it?
I went to my voting place at ten after seven. After I turned the first corner and could get a better view, I was able to count 150 people in front of me. I wasn't able to count some people that were standing in groups or the voters that had already entered the building. It took me one and a half hours to cast my vote.
I just could not keep my eyes open Tuesday night and fell asleep about 10:30ish. At 11:51, I heard the words, "Barack Obama is the 44th President of the United States of America."
I knew at that second that everything was going to be okay.

It's been a while

since I've last posted. I'll be making up for lost time over the next couple of weeks. LOL

While I was away I went from this

to this

I had a hard time deciding on the style and where I would get it cut, but I finally decided on Janet Mittendorf's. Walt also decided to get his hair cut while we were there, but I don't have pics of him. He only had two or three inches cut, while I had about twelve inches. And, I like the fact that the red color shows up even more now that it's shorter!

I'll be blogging about the projects I've completed and the ones I'm working on over the next week or so.
