Check out My Uncle Sam

First while I sit here I just have to say my prayers and thoughts are with all of those affected by all of the flooding, I look at those pictures and just tear up at all of the
homes that are damaged and all of those that are displaced in shelters.
This year has really been a bad one for natural disasters. It just breaks my heart

I have been trying to get back into creating and wanted to share with you my latest
I would like to introduce to you my Uncle Sam
And I would like to take this time to send out a Big Thank you to
Brenda Sanker of The Vintage Polka Dot
I contacted Brenda and asked if I could adapt one of her designs to do this guy
And was thrilled when she responded to me with a yes, I love Brenda's patterns!

This guy is a big one he is 30 inches long including his Hat

yesterday I received a LARGE box in the mail
and I also have a swap to share
But you have to wait to see what they are  hubby is bringing home some hardware so I can display these items and I will finally have one room in my home that I can share pictures of and will be doing that in a couple of days

I will close in sharing a picture of my son
This is Jerry and Tiffany his fiance

Hope you are having a Wonderful Day


  1. I think you could take any pattern and make it awesome, Brenda. I've always admired Brenda Sanker too. Uncle Sam is great! Your son & fiance look so young and happy! Flooding-just read on Google FEMA is asking some disaster victims for $ amount quoted was $20,000! Can't imagine-they've already gone through so much. Thanks for sharing ~*~Lisa
