Worth waiting 50 years for…..

When I was a little girl I dreamed of owning  a playhouse. A couple of friends had them and I WANTED ONE. No amount of begging got me a little house! Well this year on my birthday my sister told me her neighbor wanted to get rid of their playhouse – All I had to do is come and get it! I was so excited I could hardly sleep dreaming of how I would fix it up for my grandchildren – Drew and Callie. A week later my friend who works for me and her husband moved it to my house – what a blessing to find them!



This is how it looked the day I started on it – I could not wait to make my dream come true!


I painted the outside and inside, and stuck down tile. And the little cute house emerged! I furnished the inside with a table and benches my Dad made for the boys when they were little and also added my doll bed from when I was a child. My friend Leslie is moving and she gave me a kitchen so it all just came together!


Yesterday was the Open House for friends and family – it was so fun watching their excited faces- worth the sweat, sore muscles and paint in the hair!

Drew and Callie loved it and played, touched and looked at everything. Callie kept telling us it was time for dinner – she was a busy bee cooking and cleaning her little house.

I can not tell you happy it made my heart to see the two of them have such fun in their special place. We will make lots of fun memories in the Yarger Kids house.



And I learned you are never to old  for childhood dreams to come true! Got to go play in the little house now!

The busy month of JUNE…. and its only day 8!

To say the last week has been a little busy is a understatement! My store The Bernina Sewing  Center had a booth at the Abilene Quilt Show last week. I had worked my fingers to the bone weeks before getting every thing made I wanted to show and sell. I had so much fun letting my creative juices run wild! the show was good and I saw a lot of old  and new Bernina friends. I chose the Embroidery collection “Steampunk” as my theme(I am all about a theme) and used all white,beige,black – I loved how it came together and it was a huge hit among the guest! IMG_0705




Yesterday I taught 24 Family Consumer Science Teachers in our Region a sewing workshop. I shared with them projects that they could use in their classrooms next year. It was a fun – fun day! This is the 3rd time I have been asked to lead this workshop and I look forward to it each summer.



I am now ready for a few days off to recharge my body and creative spirit- I am headed to the glorious Mountains – they are calling my name.
