A Day With My Little Sister :-)

Hi there my friends, thanks for stopping by!  I had just the most wonderful day with my younger sister!  I had gotten some tree ornament kits from Alicia Paulson and today we planned to spend the afternoon cutting and sewing our projects.  But the first thing was my sister's unveiling of her brand new kitchen!  I was so impressed with how it turned out!  Below is the new stove where the sink was in the old kitchen.
They put their fabulous new fridge on an angle, boy is that nice!  All the cabinets are painted country white, it's so bright and clean looking!
The new sink area now has a view from the nice new bigger windows that will open in the summer for a nice breeze.
Below is her amazing new gas stove, she's loving using gas instead of electric.  And see the beautiful tile work on the backsplash?  
She made us some delicious lunch of salad with sauteed shrimp... mmmm!
And for dessert.... OH MY.. she made from scratch, Panna Cotto with Raspberry Coulis.  YUMMM!!! :-)
After that wonderful meal we opened our packages and began to cut out our felt ornaments.  She was working on a polar bear and I was working on a tree.  We cut and sewed and added beads and sequins for hours and hours! :-)
Below is my tree - only one half was decorated when it was time for me to go home.  Just a few more hours of work and this family heirloom will be finished.  Then I'll make the deer and then the adorable cabin with Christmas lights and smoke (grey wool) coming out of the chimney.  
I am so glad I have 2 sisters.. sisters rock!  

Well, time for me to relax... thanks for coming by to visit.  I hope you're having a good week!

((hugs)) Teresa


  1. I'm envious of that kitchen. Sounds like you had a fun day.

  2. The kitchen is gorgeous! I have to agree that sisters totally rock. I'm afraid mine lives on the West Coast, so I don't get to see her nearly as much as I'd like. You're so lucky that your sister is close enough that you get to spend the day with her. I'm jealous :)

  3. I LOVE that kitchen! I agree sisters are great, wish I lived closer to mine. Love the ornaments, can't wait to see them all finished. ♥

  4. Your sister's kitchen is beautiful I have two sisters, one of which I am very close with. I couldn't live without her. I am so glad you had a nice day and your ornaments are looking great.

  5. So beautiful Teresa !!! I've got all of Alicia's patterns tooo and just managed to only make the tree as my embroidery skills are non existent at the moment!

  6. Oh I love Alicia's patterns - they are the best! I haven't gotten the ornaments even though I kinda wish I had cause yours look so lovely.

  7. your sister's kitchen is beautiful! and i love alison's blog too, am now following.

    we have had another day of torrential wind and rain, but is is lovely and cosy in the house, even if i miss the christmas tree.

    the tree ornaments are magical! really lovely

    lots of love and hugs xxx


  8. I love the felt ornaments! I made some myself several years ago. My mom had started them and lost intrest so I spent several days cutting, sewing, adding beads, sequins and embroidered faces. It was wonderful!

  9. Wow, such a wonderful kitchen design! You are blessed with a wonderful family. I see the creative juices flow throughout!


I absolutely love comments and thank you so much for taking time to leave me a note. :-)
