Today I want to show you the PJs I made for my great grandson.  I didn't have a pattern, so I took his clothes and traced a pattern.  Worked well on the shorts, but I had a little trouble with the top.  The point is, he picked out the fabric himself and told me what to make with each piece.  I love it when that happens.  Isn't he one handsome dude!

I wanted to show you this too.  It has been a wonderful growing season here in Michigan.  This Sweet Autumn Myrtle  Clematis is loaded with blooms.  I love how it's sweet fragrance drifts through my back yard.  I read recently that Autumn shows us that there is beauty in letting go.

He is a handsome boy and that is a great outfit for him. I hadn't heard that saying about autumn but it is very inspiring.
