Spring Green

Doesn't green just make you so Happy?
My Green faux Pears make me happy!
So does this Nicey Jane fabric by Heather Bailey

In fact I even liked her selvage labeling so I included it on my table cloth hem.
I felt her talented art work should be recognized by those who see my table cloth.
So I carefully tucked the edge under while leaving the label visible .

I love the vintage feeling of the fabrics and how happy it makes me!

I used 2 yards of the floral for the main body of the table cloth.
Then 1 yard of the contrasting green fabric divided into 6 strips and sewn
around the floral. Then I did a rolled hem on the edge.

Do you you have something that makes you happy?

I just finished watching this film "Steal a Pencil for Me"
I watched it on Hulu
It was so worth watching. It is a love story and
a story of family history too. It is a true story of a couple that
survived the Holocaust and their experiences in the
concentration camps. It is also a story about their
60 year love that started there.
Take the afternoon off and sip cocoa with hankies near by
and watch! Than go and kiss all you love and pray
a prayer for all when you you're done.

Sister Tea Party

Thank you for coming to my little Tea Party!
It was a success thanks to my little sister C who helped me
make Cucumber sandwiches, deviled eggs as I made chocolate
muffins, raspberry mouse, dipped strawberries in chocolate
and dashed to the market for roses and strawberries.

I found some pink heart cookies at the market that I had to
get for my little event. So pretty and yummy. I made some
Devonshire Tartlets the day before as well. We had more
than enough little cucumber sandwiches. The shrimp was a favorite.

Everything was lovely especially the sisters I shared the
afternoon with. Thank you ladies. I miss you now that
you have gone home. I also discovered that my two
sisters aren't on my new Visiting route. I will miss them.

Oh well, we can always get together for another Tea Partty.
..... I can hardly wait
