Paper Doillies, Burlap and Lace

I am trying to get back in the groove after being in Vermont for 10 days with my grand kids. The doxies want a lot of attention and there are many things to do to get ready for my trip to LA on Friday to see my daughter. Whew!

I was cleaning up my dining room table where I have a tendency to place project or potential project materials. More on this table than I care to show you!
But as I began to organize, these paper lace doilies caught my eye. What could I do with them? Flowers? Ta Da!

Leaping Lizards!

Early afternoon, the dogs and I head outside to get the clothes off the clothesline. It seems that someone else is enjoying the fresh smelling clothes as well. I must say he scared me at first. I was not expecting him or her.

Sensational Sweet and Sour Meatballs

Sensational, that is what family and friends say when I serve these meatballs. I often serve them when I have company or parties, although I did make them last week just for us. 

The first year I made them for our Christmas party, they were gone almost immediately. The recipe makes around 80 meatballs so I thought it would be enough with all of the other food. Last year I doubled the recipe and still they were asking for more. I guess I will triple the recipe this year. lol!

Will I ever get this couch slipcover done?

I haven't been blogging much the past two weeks. I have been sewing and sewing, and then some more sewing. Whew!! My daughter just moved to LA.  She went from a small town in Vermont to LA. What a major change! She has this couch with a beige slip cover on it and wanted to get a new one. Well, there are times when you should keep your mouth shut - I think this time was one of those. I volunteered to make one for her couch being the good mother that I am. How hard could it be?
