I got two aprons from this tablecloth with lots of leftovers, too. The rest has quite a bit of red stain- maybe too much wine at a Christmas dinner????
Merry Christmas everyone!

Custom order from her wedding dress. I was very nervous! But I think it turned out very nice! Of course it looks better in "real life". I'm not sure I want to do these very often...

What I made today...I'm glad to be inside because we are having a heat wave! UGH!!! Sewing in the AC suits me fine! This was fun- I had all the fabric here. Took awhile to decide what to line it with but Claire likes dogs and I thought this green just gave it a kick and the button matches the green just right!

Just finished! I found this fabric at a local antique shop and had to have it. We host the Columbus Carriage Classic, a pleasure driving competition, here in Columbus WI every summer- this year Aug. 22-24. I made this for a dear friend for her birthday. The fabric is a Waverly- called "They're Off". Don't know what year it was made. I got a good sized chunk of it and will make some more totes and maybe pillow, too!

Movie pictures

Actors chairs
Me with a real Tommy gun- very heavy!!
Setting up the camera, etc
Some of the excitement here at the Gallery...we are the scene of the Green Castle bank robbery. They spent all day, Tuesday March 18th, filming this scene...the gang coming out of the bank after robbing it. Can you spot Johnny on the car? We did get to meet him very briefly- he is very gracious. They finished up the filming here last night-or should I say early this morning (3am) We will miss them!

Our Bea

This is our Bea-short for Beatrix-she was an English Shepard- the good old farm dog. She passed on March 14th from kidney failure. She was the BEST dog ever-never ran away, never barked except in a thunderstorm)loved everyone, stayed in our yard with no fence! We miss her but know she is at peace now. This was taken on one of her best last days- she loved to be outside and would only come in at night. She was 14 years old.

Johnny Depp in Columbus!!!!!


OK- I have to post this...Johnny Depp is coming to Columbus and will be filming for the movie Public Enemies. One of the scenes will be shot in my Gallery!!!! The Gallery was once a bank and will be a bank again- although the scene will be shot from the outside- Johnny will run out of the front doors, get into a car and be drive away. I'm not sure yet if we are being robbed but I'll let you know as soon as I know.
VERY exciting!!!!!
