Here's a close-up of the skirt and the sweet little socks I knitted to go with...just kidding, I wish!
I made the t-shirt with a coordinating fabric by cutting out a flower and some of the leaves and arranging them and affixing them to the shirt with "Wonder-Under." Then I stitched around the flower and leaves really slowly, which made me crazy going so slow!
Here's another shot of the "model"...I am working on another "look" for my "Sophia line," but it won't be ready for a while...I'll let ya know when it's done! I'm also working on a couple of things for my nieces for Christmas...*gulp* other people seeing my sewing up close?? I must have lost it!!

For Indian projects, Noah made a piece of pottery and a sandpainting. The sandpainting is just tinted cornmeal and he glued it in a pattern he drew.

1.) You made us!!(Well, you and the Creator, of course) Some of the coolest people ever! And you're a great Dad! Tough at times, yes, but appropriately so...we gave (and give) you a hard time at times, but you are always an assertive, but loving Dad.
2.) You're fun and funny! When we were little, you always wanted to do fun things with us and take us fun places...we can remember tons of summers of fun vacations and lots of great memories.
4.) You have lots of mercy, but you're also very discerning...two qualities that depend on one another.

Here's the forest....
We painted some little wood thingies to look like toadstools...and most of the other stuff we found at the crafts store. No, not everything is proportionate to everything else...like the bird could definitely take out that bear! Oh, well he had fun.
