Some pictures from Saturday's
 McDowell Reunion.
Wee Jack at 6 months, 11 lbs.;
a far cry from his birth weight of 1.1 lbs.
Mamie--Bob's beautiful Australian Shepherd with the marble eyes.
Some of the first cousins that were able to make it.
That's me in the brown shirt.

The burlap and muslin flower garland I made
A little snowman in progress.

Whenever I'm stalled on any other project,
I continue embroidering this shirt.
Hope everyone has
a great Thanksgiving in the works!


  1. That a nice time. Wee Jack is so cute! I really love the garland you made. It is so elegant...very country chic!

  2. What a wonderful reunion! And charming crafting :)
    Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.

  3. It's hard to believe that garland is made of burlap! It really looks good. Great set of pictures. I like that you all got together in cousin groups. Wee Jack is a cutie pie. He looks really happy to be with so much family. Hope you guys had a great Thanksgiving.

  4. Ooh what fun! I love reunions. Everyone must have loved this one for sure.

  5. Stephie - It was a great time for all of us, I think. Yes, Wee Jack is quite a character now; he makes everyone laugh when he chuckles!

    Nancy - :) We had so much fun catching up and hearing old stories! Hope you and yours had a great Thanksgiving!

    Mary - The garland was super easy to make, just gathering down the middle of the burlap "ribbon" from Michaels. I'm going to have to quit calling the little guy Wee Jack and switch to Brawny Jack as he is growing so fast and is so strong.

    Yarny Days - :) Reunions are fun, aren't they? So much chatter going on as people catch up with each other!


Good to hear from you!
