Valentina photos

I have been having problems posting blog posts on my phone. Fingers are crossed that I can succeed via the iPad! These are photos from a recent visit with Warren and Valentina, plus a dress that I recently sewed for her. Val is turning one in about a week!

A last fond look at Heirloom Meadows Farm

The last photos from our visit to Central NY in August. I loved this photo of Sammy holding a chicken! There is a photo of my mother holding a chicken as a girl; I will try to add it later. 

Here Sammy us modeling a dress that I made her. It's the Oliver and S Jumprope dress. Years ago I made one in size 3, and I liked it so much I made it in size 6. 

One of their beautiful chickens. I used to know the names of the varieties. 

Ducks of a feather stickin' together.

A visit to a very special petting zoo. This camel adored Martine. 

Lots of hungry, docile animals to feed.

Yvonne tribute

This is the quilt I made for the Yvonne Porcella tribute, organized by Pokey Bolton. I call it "A Toast to Yvonne (And to Strong Women Everywhere)." It was inspired by the toasts made at Dinner at Eight dinners. 

And here's a detail.
