Ballerina Bow Holder

Well it is finished. I am never able to keep anything secret from my daughter, but so far this is, and hopefully I will get it wrapped soon and this will be a surprise. I made this for the babies nursery. I used the fabric that matches the crib layette. I had a pic in my mind and that is about all I had. Got 2 friends to help. One to draw off the dancing suit and the other to cut it out of wood. It turned out exactly how I wanted it to. I covered the board with the material by using sticky spray and then hot glued the edges to the back. I found the left over bowwa from the lamp, and had just enough to put on the neck and the embellishment ot the waist. I made a fabric flower--got this tutorial many months ago from "" and used a pom pom from Wally World for the center. I made the tutu and applied it to the suit with hot glue. Then I got several different colors of ribbon that match the room and hung them from the back. I am so pleased with this, and I know they will love it also. Going to go wrap it up before she comes over here unexpectedly.
This is the verse I turned to this morning when I was reading my devotional.
The teachings of the Lord are perfect; they give new strength .
The rules of the Lord can be trusted; they make plain people wise. ___Psalm 19:7
I have not been very faithful on my "Time Out Thursday" lately, so this week I will do a Wednesday and Thursday time out. Now, deep breath, blow out slowly. Picture in your mind the best thing that has ever happened to you. Hold that thought!!! Now relax and enjoy the rest of the day. Let stress take a vacation. Call an old friend today. I already have. It is my high school best friends birthday and I called this morning to give her good wishes. I did not get her,but she emailed me shortly that she got it and was so happy I remembered. I got a check in email from an old friend today also. She was just checking in to see how I was. It really made mefeel good. Sometimes we forget what a little check in on someone will do. Ya'll remember that today!!
Daughter just called and getting out, so I better get to wrapping. Ya'll have a great day! Be safe, happy, healthy. Smile and laugh. Smile and laugh again!! Pray for our soldiers and our country. God bless ya'll!!
