First Meeting...good times!

Yesterday was the first meeting for the 2010-11 year of Holly Berries.  We had a wonderful time...all five of us. Missed Wanda, Susan, Ginny, Jeanne.  But we did come up with a basic calendar for the first few months.  AND we agreed that the FIRST Wednesday of every month will be our Wee Care time.  Not always workshops, but just a day with some time to sit and work on wee care.  Sit n Stitch time!! 

Sew...soooo....Our first Wee Care sit n stitch will be:  October 6th at the shoppe. Bring any wee care you are working on, or come prepared to put some together!! And please don't forget that WeeCare is not just gowns...bonnets, hats, blankets and more.

See you real soon!!

Mother's Day 2010


Samantha is modeling a sweet bishop dress which is now on it's way to be included in a raffle.

The yellow roses are from my garden here at the shop. A favorite of mine, my sister and yes, Our mother.

Mother's day memories are many. But none so sweet as all the other ordinary, everyday Mother's Day...each day with our mother, or with our children, all are sweet. May today be one of many to come for the young.
