I'm Still Here

Wow, I can't believe it has been so long since I posted and been blog hopping. No excuse.....just haven't sat down at the computer to do it.

Sarabeth will be five years old on Monday, November 24. It just doesn't seem possible that she will be that old. Where does the time go? I have made her two jumpers for her birthday and have plans to make her a pair of Hannah Montana pj's and embroider a couple of shirts. Here are the jumpers.

This is a denim jumper with a machine embroidery applique and decorative stitching.

This is a navy cordoury jumper for Christmas. I love this Christmas tree machine embroidery applique design.

I have ordered several red tee shirts from WalMart on line for Addie and Sarabeth so I can do some Christmas shirts for them. We checked several stores in our area and none had the red long sleeve shirts in their size.

Yesterday was another day from H--- with jury duty. I spent the whole day at the courthouse....'cause they didn't start jury selection until 12 noon. It was a 1st degree murder case. My prayers were answered everytime they reached into the box to draw a name -- my name was never drawn. So the judge finally excused those of us whose name was not drawn at 5:00 p.m. once they had a jury finalized. But it was a very long day spend sitting on either the horrible wooden benches in the hallway waiting for the jury pool to be called into the courtroom or sitting in the equally horrible wooden seats in the courtroom.

Luck, love and laughter,
