The next day....and something new to make

It's the morning after the night before...and Blossom would like me to say to you all, THANK YOU!!
She sat and read all your comments last night, and was so touched by the well wishes and prayers. She'd like me to share with you a picture of her unofficial 16th present - we couldn't resist buying them yesterday, and she needed new slippers anyway. ;-)
Aren't they gorgeous!?

And a special photo of Blossom and I last night - complete with her choc-fudge brownies. She doesn't do birthday cakes, she prefers the fudge brownies.

So what am I doinng today?
I have printed up Stephanie's Dresden Plate tutorial, chosen the fabrics (Lila Tueller's "Woodland Bloom"), and will finally open the Dresden tool Stephanie sent me! I have not been brave enough to use it yet, but today I'll take courage with leftover chocolate fudge brownies and a strong capuccino, then crack that plastic open and begin....I wonder if I'll get hooked on them like Stephanie is???

Stayed tuned to this spot.
I may have something really lovely to share tomorrow if this works out.

Hugs
Jenny

  2. You two are a lovely mom and daughter couple. Now we all know where Blossom gets her looks from. Great looking slippers. What a lucky girl.
    Have no fear, the dresden plates are easy. I did them about 10 years ago with a seniors group and we made templates out of cardboard, traced them onto fabric, marked all the sewing lines, cut them all out by hand and sewed them. Loads of work back then but they had the time.

  13. Oh how lovely it is to see a photo of you Jenny and your sweet daughter. How about a pic permanently on your blog? It's always nice to put a face to a name. We all enjoyed Blossom's birthday as much as she did...you have a wonderful family and; that would be because you are a wonderful person.

It's always nice to receive feedback on a blog post, so *thank you* for taking time to comment!
I will try to reply via email unless you are a 'no reply blogger' which means you'll have to check for my reply in the comments. Of course, life is a rather hazardous activity, isn't it? So if I don't respond to your comment that's the reason why - life simply stepped in...
hugs
Jenny
