For the past two weeks I have been diligently working on the above child's senior overalls. Each year the new class of senior girls don their overalls on Fridays for pep rallies and football games. I finished sewing the last rhinestone last night and they were ready to be worn today. Now, I have never appliqued before so this was a first for me. The inside seams had to be taken out for me to work on the material. I started on the back and I used the same color thread as the fabric so it would blend in! By the time I got to the front and bottom of the overalls, I was almost a pro! But, I am so ready to get back to painting!

I can't believe it has been almost 2 weeks since my last post, but we've been pretty busy around here lately! Todd finally pinned Lindsey down on a college, and we went to tour Tarleton State in Stephenville. This sign was in the welcome center when we walked in! Lindsey was embarrassed that I took the picture, but I told her one day she would appreciate it. I couldn't get her to stand beside the sign so this was the best I could do!
