I've been on vacation and it's been hard to get back into the swing of things, so I've been a little lazy about posting. Remember This shirt? I used the other tie to make Taylor a tank top.

I know this shirt to some will seem very obnoxious, but I love it.
I started out by making three ruffles with this small check material.
Then I sewed them on by layering them on top of each other a little bit.
After I was finished with the ruffles I attached an old purple necklace to the sides of the ruffle. I used the extra strong thread to keep it in place.
I hid it under the ruffle. I wash all of my handmade clothes on the hand wash cycle so that things like this won't get ruined.
Then I attached a fabric rose I had lying around and some more of my grandma's clip on earrings.
A little "over the top"? Yes, but so am I sometimes :).

I finally got around to embellishing the shirts I bought a while back. Kelly Green is one of my favorite colors. I went through a bag of clothes that I was going to donate and took out this shirt because I thought I could use the satin polka dot tie.
I snipped it off...
and tied it into a bow. As you can see below the cut end doesn't match the finished end. So I tucked it inside itself and sewed along the edge. I also sewed along the edge of the other side to make them match.
Then I carefully attached the bow by sewing it in place here and there in places that wouldn't be noticeable.
I took one of my grandma's old clip on earings and attached it to the middle of the bow.
I love my new shirt!

I picked the winner by using random.org but when I tried to publish it, it showed everything but the number it picked. I'll have to figure out what I'm doing wrong for next time but it picked #1. :)

10 potatoes peeled,boiled until cooked, cut up cubed , 7 boiled eggs chopped, put in refrigerator and chill. Add after chilled 1 and1/2 cups of mayonnaise, 3Tbls of mustard, 3/4 cup sweet pickle relish and salt and pepper to taste. Sometimes I use Lawry's season salt instead of regular salt. And sometimes if my potatoes are big or small I put more or less mayonnaise.
(For a lighter version of this use light may, I like Light Best Foods)
catsup, 4 Tbls. of mustard, 1/2 cup molasses and salt and pepper to taste. If you don't have molasses it still taste good without it. Simmer on the stove until all ingredients are warmed up, or put it in crock pot and serve hot. (After reading these ingredients and being the health nut I am, I'm sure it would still taste good without the bacon fat. ) I think my mom and Paula Dean would be good friends, ha.
