Day Visit to Hendersonville

My husband and I went to Hendersonville for the day yesterday. I got to meet Sandy Setliff one of my blog buddies. I admire her artwork so much! Sandy is a true artist and does beautiful work! We went to lunch at The Moose Cafe then we went downtown to her art studio and she gave us a tour, we even got to meet some of the very talented artists there. After talking to some of the artists and looking at all of the beautiful creations we walked around downtown some and we even got to see Poppy Bear. Poppy is one of the beautiful bears Sandy painted for the city of Hendersonville and will be auctioned off for charity. Last year her Elderbeary Bear sold for 4,000.00!!! I just loved Elderbeary! Thank you Sandy for such a wonderful afternoon! Hope to see you again soon!

Just in case anyone is interested,  our youngest daughter Amy and her husband Daryl went to the hospital yesterday afternoon and our new granddaughter was born at 2:51 a.m. this morning! Her name is Ruby Ann and she weighs 7 lb. 15 oz. and is 21 inches long. Some of you know that my oldest daughter Nicole has five children, Alexis 20, Zachary 18, Joey 16, Josh 14, and Jakkob 10. We have always called  Alexis our favorite granddaughter to which she quickly tells us that she is our ONLY granddaughter. She said I wont be your favorite granddaughter anymore and I told her yes you will, your our favorites OLDEST granddaughter and Ruby is our favorite YOUNGEST granddaughter! The boys are favorites in their age groups!
We are so excited about our new precious little addition to the family!

2 Creative Chicks Challenge #28 "Anything Goes" Mid Posting

Good Morning Everyone!

It's time for another challenge over at 2 Creative Chicks
Where the challenges are always"Anything Goes" but a card.

Here is a little outfit I made for or new baby granddaughter. She has not arrived yet, but is due as I write.

My daughter Amy is not a fan of pink but, I love pink ( and so do little girls).  My Mom (Mamaw to the grandkids) who is in Heaven always loved ice cream pink on little girls and babies.

I made this little ice cream pink set in honor of my Mom. I wrote a special note to Amy and explained why and told her it was from her Mamaw and me.  I modified the pattern because I wanted pleats in the bodice and skirt. I also hand embroidered on the front of the bodice , the sleeves, the bonnet, and the shoes. I made the little ribbon flowers with pearl buttons on the sides of the bonnet. I added little seed pearls to the centers of the embroidered flowers. I also made the bonnet stand.  It was very difficult to get good photos. I hope you are able to see the detail.

Patterns, fabric, thread, embroidery thread,  needle, seed pearls, pearl buttons, satin ribbon, buttons for back of dress, lace, interfacing,. Bonnet Stand- wooden stand, paint, glue, styrofoam ball, tulle netting, satin ribbon, silk flower.

Onto the challenge info.
