Hello Everyone, I have had such an exciting week with the birth of little Miss Lilly, her Momma's C-section, and no wi-fi in their home to do my posting! It is delightful being here but I guess you never think of something until you don't have it! Lucky me, I will walk down the road to a candy store to post! But hey whatever works and they offered! More about them another time. Meet Miss Kennedy, my new kinda Granddaughter! She is Lilly's half sister by another Mom. She is sporting my first ever dress by me without a pattern, In Cotton and Steel's Panda fabric! She is such a beautiful and sweet little girl! She loved playing princess for me after I made her dress but is a little camera shy. I will claim her! Miss Lilly Anne who arrived on Monday, May 1, 2017, at 8 lbs 4 oz, and 20 inches long, is sporting a Geranium Dress, also Cotton and Steel's Panda fabric! I have a link a few posts back for the free Geranium Dress Pattern (0 - 3 months) by Made-by-Ra…

If you haven't heard of it you can find more info here but basically you chose do to something for 100 days and document it on instagram with a unique hashtag. My unique hashtag on Lisa Johnson (@intheboondocks) • Instagram photos and videos will be #100daysofAurifilThreadIn the last couple weeks I kept seeing on Instagram what others were going to do and kept trying to think of something original I could do even though I wouldn't be home for much during the next couple months! I always carry some thread around with me! I know I am a little weird but it comes in handy!You see my oldest daughter is due to deliver baby Lilly May 1st!
