Andrea and Michael....Prom 2017

              Andrea and Michael.....Lake Zurich High School Prom 2017.
              It rained most of the day...but someone did something right, because it stopped in time for pictures and for the rest of the evening.   Andrea was so beautiful...I loved her dress...and how happy she and Michael looked together. I hope they had a wonderful time!

Sweet Stitches Sampler

                                                             The April "Sweet Stitches" Sampler....shades of taupe with accents of pink, turquoise, blue, yellow and green. The Sampler units are....a silver Thimble and Scissors; a nine patch Quilt Block; a Pincushion with Pins; a clear Button Jar with Buttons; a Sewing Machine for the center unit; a Cross Stitch Hoop with Embroidery Floss and a Needle; a "Made With Love" Label & a Spool of Thread; a Fan Quilt Block and a Dressmaker's Mannequin.
                                                              I should have photographed the Sampler instead of scanning it....the silver pieces would have come out silver and not black...but you can still see and enjoy the tiny details on each unit.

Spring Flower Sampler...March 2017

                                     The Spring Flower Sampler from the March 2017 Class......containers of flowers that we love to see when they finally appear in the Spring months. Bright blossoms in a pair of wellies, Forsythia branches blooming in a large glass jar, Hyacinths in a china tea cup, Crocus in a berry basket, Seedlings in an egg carton, a bulb bowl filled with Daffodils, Peonies in a colander and an old metal toy truck holding a pot of Tulips.  I wish that I had half of these in my year I will.

The Gluten Free & Allergy Free Expo...

               Some of the wonderful things that were given out or that I purchased at the Gluten Free & Allergy Friendly Expo in Schaumburg yesterday. The top photo is of all the coupons that were handed out. The bottom photo is of the samples and purchases. It was a great way to try new things from a multitude of companies.....some were really good. Samples included.... potato gnocchi, lasagna, tons of pizzas, nutrition bars, beverages, chips, cooking and baking mixes. I bought one of the pizza mixes and one of the angel food cake mixes...the samples of these two were so good that I couldn't wait to get home to start baking.
