The girls and grandkids came up today to see dad and Papa! He has been building a coop for the chickens.

Stephanie, Kassy and Papa! They like what he has done so far.
The chickens have sure gotten big. We have two roosters and two hens. Sure hope there are no fights!

Final dress and a bag

Here is the final dress after having to tear it apart and put it together again for alterations. The girl picked it up today and it fit beautifully! So I am officially done with the bridesmaid's dresses. What a relief! Of course after all that seam ripping my hand and arm ache. A slight case of tight thumb and carpal tunnel. But now I can do other stuff!!
I hope to get a picture of all four girls in their dresses from the bride after the wedding which is next weekend.

There was a party for our secret sister revealing a couple weeks ago. This is the last gift I recieved my my secret sister! It is so colorful and I love it. The inside has pockets all the way around the bottom of the bag. I never even guessed who it was! The lady I gave gifts to gave me a kit to make a table runner.  It was a fun party!
