My Red Riding Hood Cape

 I have been down with a cold these past few days so I am a little late in returning e-mails & socializing.  I did get a chance to visit some of my new followers blogs today & it is great to see other websites and all your creations, fashion & style & musing blogs!  I do visit but it might take me a little while to get to you until I am feeling better.  My husband & daughters have been great in helping out with dinners,  etc.  So that is nice to be taken care of by my family.  I lost my voice too and of course the husband & kids thought that was hilarious that I could not yell at them!  I did manage to yell whisper a few times which brought on more laughter (even from me).  Life goes on though and I still had to do the "mom" thing & drive mini-me to

This is a red cape that I finished today (because its hard for me to just relax & rest-sewing is relaxing right?)!  I only had to finish the hems so it wasn't too bad.

I started this red hooded cape in January but I was making so much of them that this one got put away.  This is my design & is the same as my Coco Capelet.  I only changed the shape of the pockets & I made them more on a angle.  I also added an hook & eye closure on the front but I am still looking for that perfect button to finish it!

I also received my first blog award!

Magda was so thoughtful in choosing me & when you get a chance visit her fabulous blog.  She is so talented & her designs are beautiful!  She is truly deserving of this award!  As part of this award I have to share 7 random facts about me:

Random Facts

1.  I love Super Cars especially the Aston Martin DB Vantage!
2. I would love one day to go back to London & race a car on Top Gear!
3. My husband was my high school sweetheart!
4. We have a RV and love to go camping as a family.
5. We sit down & eat together as a family every night.  If someone is working late I make dinner later & we wait for them.
6.  I was trained in ballet & modern jazz school of dance since I was 5 years old & still practise the dance almost daily.
7. I enjoy attending church on Sunday's & have always made this day about family & God.

I will also be passing this award along soon!
