Whoo!

Pillowcase dress

My friend's daughter wearing a pillowcase dress I made!



My friend lives in Japan now, I met her at the English conversation club in my area of the USA. She lived in the USA for 2 years, and went back to Japan. It is very interesting her daughter's birthday is Dec. 26, 2008, that was the day of the D & C surgery for me, and also our anniversary. It's just a coincidence, but I feel like something special for her daughter. I unfortunately haven't seen her daughter in person though. She gave the daughter a birth in Utah after moved from Virginia, then went back to Japan.

I don't have any human children, so I don't have a model for my pillowcase dress. I am very happy to see the dress fitted her daughter! :)

Playing Outside the Block

This is the quilting group I belong to. I am a quiet member because of my English speaking problem (hearing skill is much better than speaking), but the ladies are very patient for me, positively try to understand what I speak, talk to me nicely, I appreciate it very much. I am kind of a listener even when I am with my Japanese friend. I can speak well when my mood is for "speaking", but I cannot even explain about something well when my mood is "not speaking". So this personality is helping me to be quiet.

Anyway.

Lisa Ellis have made a wonderful website of the group!

The block I made is shown on the website :)

Pizza
+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+

I use my bread machine almost everyday!
Here is my first home-made pizza.



It was delicious like PapaJohns Pizza, which is my husband and my favorite!
Although my husband strictly avoids any kind of oil and fat because of the health problem (high blood pressure, high cholesterol), he sometimes eats pizza.



This is a picture of dough. Yeast worked so hard to make flower rise, it was very soft and even look like it's already baked!

My life has been built on people's kindness.
