Well I went from one video on you tube to another. Some of them were pretty amazing and I felt like I was robbing a bank . I learned so much in a short time watching them and it was free. so far I have made 12. One with straps and pockets. Now for the double zipper!

Today is such a fun day not only is it Grandparents Day at our local school here but I am going to be a grandma again any minute.

This is our sweet grandson Paul. He is graduating from Kindergarten.

This is the dress I made last fall getting ready for spring this year Such a fun dress, I really liked the true to size pattern. Went together nicely too.

Above is the pattern I used. The beautiful vase and flowers are from my sweet daughter Leah. Yesterday, my dear husband made a delicious dinner for a few in the family to celebrate Mother’s Day. it was our grandson Isaac’s graduation from H.S.

This is my daughter Marybeth and her big family of only boys, all big football players.We had our game time together in the evening. It was a very nice day indeed.

This special cake above I made for a sweet graduating friend. I have to say that without the Lord I could do nothing, because it’s true. Blessings, Christie

I am in my pledge completed. This will be a first anything on line challenge for me.

I have pledged to wear only those garments which I have seen myself except a few tee shirts and under clothes for the entire month of May. I also pledged to take at least 15 pictures that I will post here during the month. The picture posting will be the hard part as i am not the slim trim GRANDMA i wish i was as a young mother.

Cooking

Ol Fashion Cinnamon Raisin Bread


 

This batter bread recipe is simply amazing.  I think I can settle down now and just enjoy baking up some simple bread that is mouth watering good. From the book, “A World of Breads”, by Dolores Casella.

I was able to deliver loaves fresh from the oven to two friends right before dinner.

That was the highlight of my day.

Blessings Everyone
