Fun Day with family . The booth
of beautiful artwork is that of my niece Angie Cook. Self taught artist. She has a gallery in St. Helens.

Josi turned 4 May 28. She is now such a big girl.
I made her this dress from Sis Booms Bell Bottom fabric collection. I just used a simple Easy Sew Pattern. Appliqu├ęd a
crown and trimmed the crown and hem with rick rack. Oh how I love rick rack.
Of course little sister Jaida had to have a new dress.
Here they are together with their best little friend Libbie.
