Red and White-also spring lambs...

Awwwww....look at this little sweet thing! Our first  Spring lamb!  It came a little early...the familiar sound of a tiny little voice baaaahing out in the sheep pen surprised us!  They struggle to stand at first and then they
head for the milk barn (mama sheep!) Hahaha....they want milk!
 Yes we do live on a small farm in S. California with sheep, pigeons, lots of chickens...lovingly referred to as the girls. Well the girls aren't laying right now....buying store bought eggs is new for me!
Here is a new to me twin bed that I put in my craft/storage/sewing room. My son had a fit that his room is gone!
Since my parents moved in with us our two boys rooms are gone! They understand but want to know where they are going to sleep!  The sewing room it is!
Be sure to check out more red and white here.....

One thing I have to show you...I'm making these cake plate dust ruffles (what else would/could it be called) for my Etsy shop. I've made several and I'm going to put them there in 2 days. I'm sewing like a mad woman. I wanted something to cover the cake plate while it isn't in use.
 To show you how I did it...I had to tape several pieces of paper together to make the pattern (I made some to fit a dinner plate-small size, and some to fit a standard cake plate from Walmart). I then cut out fabric in the shape of the circle, and a 2" strip of fabric the diameter of the plate. Sewed the strip to the round piece, then added rick rack and pom pom fringe and it was done.
 I set a dinner plate on an enamelware bowl turned upside down for my base and then covered it with the ruffle. I'm making some for Valentine's day, Easter, birthday parties, etc. Just a little something for decoration purposes. I actually love how it looks.




Well wonderful people that is it for me!
blessings,
Debbie

I always red and white polka dots, using then on a cake plate "skirt" is just too clever! You'll sell those, they are so cute.

Your cake plate cover is so unique and soooo cute. I am going to have to copy you. The children are giving me a 72 b’day party when we go out to a new by state park the weekend of the 11th of Feb. I have just gotta have one of these to put my carrot cake on. You are just so creative. Happy Rednesday to you and all of your family.
