Reliable as Dad

My Dad is great for doing projects and helping me around the house, especially since my husband has cancer and just isn't able to do a lot of those things.  My Father services all our outdoor equipment such as the lawnmower and snowblower and stores them so he just took our snowblower and brought our lawnmower with the blade sharpened and it all ready to go for the season.  My Dad also just changed a light fixture in my laundry room and re-wired an outlet he is great when it comes to MANY different tasks and he has LOTS of experience.  Torico has a great freebie image this month, and Paulette at TLC has the perfect sentiment.  I used a die cut from "My Favorite Things".  It worked out for the sketch that there were to have sections, I just used the grain of the wood to make my cuts.  I paper pieced the bibs with some paper of blue jeans.
