I had a wonderful holiday!We had friends and family over for barbecue.Everyone brought a dish to the barbecue.That was a lot of help there.We all ate and ate and ate!Then my dh started a fire and we all sat around it and watched the fireworks.Wonderful holiday.
My son cutting the grass the day before the holiday.

Looking through my pattern stash came across this Newlook 6242 halter dress.I have never wore a halter dress so I decided I would try it.The fabric I made it out of is Linen blend.I did have a little trouble when I had to connect the halter to the middle section of the dress.I had to take it a loose three times and start it over.I think its because of my skill level in sewing.Other than that I didn't have any other problems with it.There's also a scarf on this pattern that will make to put around my shoulders.I finished my dd hat. Now all I have to do is make the bumble bee to put on top.She loves the hat!Well she loves anything I make her bad or good!!HA HA





Looks like a SAM I AM hat!



Hope everyone have a great weekend!!!!

I think it's criminal that you've had children and have a killer body like that. Your dress is tremendous!
