Here is a fun hairdo for Gymnastics!

Okay this is the only good from a fall fair the other day. The sun was right in her eyes!

Genesis is still in her horse phase and she said her horse named Jewelry Stallion needed a run yesterday so we took her to the park!!
Nice boots and gauchos and is almost 90 today, but still in the fall mood (boots). She had the cowgirl hat but that came off!


I have been doing about 4 embroidery projects 3 are almost done and 1 is. No picture until I mount it.
Here is Genesis American Girl club meeting. We went to our town Historic Old Salem. An Old Moravian Village. Here she is with her Journal.

They played an old game, hide the ring. There were almost 20 girls.
We had home baked bread and homemade butter. Cold heavy whipping cream in an old mayo jar with one marble and shake it for 30 min or a bit more. Drain off the liquid salt to taste and enjoy!

Then on a nature walk to make leaf bouquets!

We also went to the fair last weekend!

Look what I won!

I won these from Alexis over at Knot sew crafty

I need that journal type of book. I am going to decorate it too!!!

There is a good sized piece of burlap! I am going to use that to put behind some embroidery and frame it for my Mom! And maybe with a tote as well.

Embroidery thread, the curly one. BTW I don't know what that is for yet..
and a silk scarf.

This cool Japanese magazine and some stamps.

Then there were these cool vintage patterns. We are using this one right away. Genesis wants that white gown.

Here is Lyla, a doll I just finished and she needed a dress! We put that pink fabric to use right away! Genesis helped me and we hand stitched her a little dress!

Lyla's eyes look like sunglasses and her hair is wild (but soft). Genesis loves her Mommies first doll though!!

Thanks Alexis!!
