This is the left side of the top. The houses are from Tonye Belinda Philips pattern. The car pattern is from the book Dogs and cats by Lynette Anderson. Can you see the dog sitting in side? Another house and another and another grrrrrr, blogger! tip your head and look at this one. See the dog? It is from the book Cats and dogs. I have all of the houses appliqued on this top and the next step is the trees, then the fun stuff... embellishments. here is what it looks like so far. It will be a pillow cover for a body pillow that will sit on a couch for my grand kids. So far I am loving it.
Well ,she is 24 but home for a few days. No matter how old she gets she will always be my baby.
And this monster tractor is a stomper. It is what my son has been driving nights for a month. It is designed so that those wheels stomp the rice stubble into the ground so it rots over the winter when the fields are flooded. Cuts down on the amount of acres that are burned.
And here are rice fields full of Ducks and Swans and Geese. I love the noise they make. I love it when the sky is full of them and they are honking like crazy. One of my favorite things in the whole world.
I have a love of Patience Brewster and her quirky xmas stuff. Only wish I could have been able to afford more of it. So here is my little set up. Now to get wrapping. Went over to my DIL's this weekend where it was Santa's bakeshop. Each year for Xmas she and her mom and sister make a gazillion cookies. The air was sweet and the cookies were oh so yummy. fudge, yummmmm
