Kicking up our heels!

Here are some pics from the Tapestry Dinner 
I mentioned in my last post . . . 

 Before we took our seats . . . (table toppers from Baby Daughter's wedding reception; they were made the week after Hurricane Ike stormed in through Houston's Bay Area -- no electricity, but a friend hooked my sewing machine up to a generator for me!  Unfortunately, the table toppers lasted longer than the marriage, but . . . well, that's another story.  We keep the good stuff, using what we can, and move forward, right?)  

The boots were graciously loaned to me by my sweet friend, Dawn, who couldn't make the dinner but who knew -- just knew! -- that her boots should attend!  (Those are mermaids painted on them thar boots!) 

The "Princess" magnets -- purchased for forty cents each at a Goodwill store in Medina, OH, this summer -- were originally pink, but I painted over them with some craft paint and a metallic Sharpie.)  

Clockwise from the upper right of the boots: 
Texas Preacher Woman, Debbie, Chris, Bonnie, Maureen, 
Jannie, Sonya (holding Baby Emery who, in honor of the occasion, was wearing the most FAH-BU-LOUS booties), and Jessica.
And a FUN time was had by all!


  1. Wow...that's a lot of hard work. I just can picture you working (over time) on each project.
    Of course you painted over the magnets so that they matched.
    I'd bribe anyone to sit at your table!

  2. Great looking table!!! You did a fab job.
