I am done with the dressmaker for this year...

This is the back of the dress...a very large bow. I put small crystals on the shawl to dress it up. and the big over done jewels to give it sparkle. So we will see what happens at the Bazaar???? I saved number 3 for next year, I am running out of time. The velvet was fun to work with. I kept thinking that I should just go nuts and put lots of stuff on this little number, but I am a plain Jane at heart....Happy Fall!
The bell of the ball, maybe not, but she will have sparkle:)

Here it is!

My son and his wife (Trevor&Terri) loaned me this exercise bike. It is really nice. Now to see if I will be faithful to it's use. I need to lose 50 pounds. It is for me, for my health and feeling better about me. The bike is really nice. It tells you how far, time, cals, and so on. The only thing it doesn't do is say," get your butt up and peddle!" It moves arms to which is really nice. Okay...I went one whole mile today. I know it sounds like so little, but if I do to much to soon and I get to much pain, well you know the story. It will set here and I will be dusting it like a piece of furniture. I will keep you posted, Mary's big adventure. Peddling, Peddling!

The Dancer

As you know I have been working on charms. This one is for the Granddaughter of a friend of mine. Dawn is a professional dancer in New York. I haven't seen her since she was a little girl. It is 3 inches by 1 inch, with very thin glass. The back of the charm has a sheet of music I cut out of a old music book. I was lucky to find this lovely tassel at Micheal's. It is probably used more for ear rings, but it seemed to be the right choice for this charm.
It got down to 31 degree's last night, so the heat is on. It is supposed to be about 60 today. The leaves are turning on our tree's and soon our yards will be filled with them. Happy Fall!
