Applique Contest

I have entered an applique contest at Planet Applique. The competition was to purchase 5 appliques from a theme set and use all 5 appliques in a project. I made a ocean themed hooded towel. I thought it turned out pretty cute. Please go to
and vote for Under the Sea Beach Towel - Tracy Jones!

First place is a new embroidery machine. It's my dream to get a new bigger, better embroidery machine. According to my husband, I will not be getting a new embroidery machine anytime soon unless I win it, so PLEASE go vote for me. The voting goes until August 30th.

Thanks so much!

Princess Breakfast

Emerson and her cousins, Anison and Savannah, went to breakfast with Snow White and Sleeping Beauty. They had so much fun! A place here in Memphis called Glitz N Glam does birthday parties and princess camps. Over the summer they did some princess breakfasts and the girls were able to go to it. Emerson was really excited b/c Snow White is her favorite princess! Snow White did the girls' nails and makeup and Sleeping Beauty did their hair. The girls got to have breakfast, do a craft, have storytime, and even do the Hokey Pokey with the princess. Here are some pictures of our princesses having a blast:
