Just a quick blog before I hit the hay.  My dear friend, Jackie Hahn, came over last Saturday, and I made her a black fur vest.  Just what she needs for Lady Raider basketball games.  So, here she is in Andrews, Texas out in front of Buddy's Drive In, which is famous for their steak fingers.

The vest has a red lining, so it will go with Texas Tech colors.

And, if you don't already know it--Lamesa gals do love to doll up.  Jackie's fingernails prove it.  I am jealous, of course, because I can't grow fingernails like this.
I finally finished my vest (after I finished Jackie's) and wore it to school.  Mrs. Franco took this picture in her room.  She teaches Spanish, and let the kids decorate the bulletin board last fall for Dia de los Muertos!
I ended up cutting about 6 inches off the bottom before I was happy with it. I couldn't believe how comfortable it was--not  too hot and not cold.  Sewing, blogging, exercising, and all the fun stuff is hard to work in now that we have started a new semester. 


  1. Those vests are the bomb! Jackie makes me smile; love her nails. I can't grow nails, either. Maybe if I'd learn to wear think?

    You're so busy!
    Last year of school, right?!
    Woo hoo!

  2. Yep! I am going to Austin the middle of March to fill out the papers! I don't have time to think about it though.

  3. You are so talented! It is time for a change for you and your creativity to flourish!!! We will have to think of something REALLY FUN to do when you come this year!!!!!
