RING RING SCHOOLS OUT!!!!!

Since the kids have been out of school I have been doing a lot of cooking.I have to do lunch now.When they are in school I only have to lunch for me and my dd.Four weeks ago we put in our two gardens.Yes I said two.The reason for two is the kids in the picture below!!Yes I also know how to can food too.My dear mother in law who passed away in November taught me how to can.Not only have I been doing a lot of cooking for some reason, I have had to do a lot of laundry also.I don't know what that's about.I think they are putting clean clothes in the basket.I don't have to do my teenagers clothes he does his own.Well that's life with four kids!

THESE ARE THE REASONS WHY!!!


Well I was able to squeeze in some sewing time.This dress is simplicity 3757.This was one of simplicity easy sew patterns.What I liked about this pattern was how they did the hem.I can't remember what type of fabric this was ,but it was light weight.The fabric had embroider flowers on it.I do know that I bought the fabric from JoAnn fabric for a 1.50$ a yard.Sorry about the not so clear pictures.I am still learning how to take good pictures.You can click on the picture to see it better.
SIMPLICITY 3757
Have a great day and happy crafting!!!
