I had to steal the top photo from Ashley since we weren't able to be there for the big event. Our sweet little Molly was blessed the first Sunday of this past month. It's nice that the other set of grandparents were able to attend.
Here's a photo of the dress before I sent it off in the mail. Ashley sent me a picture of a similar dress she found online that was pretty pricey....could I make it? Well sure - is it made out of fabric?, PLEASE!!! I'm super grandma, of course I can make it. Well guess what, nada. The original dress had fishing line in the hems that made them wave beautifully. (FYI, use super light fabric like chiffon if you want to put fishing line in the hem!!) But of course, we chose a much heavier, wedding weight satin, and the fishing line just couldn't work the same way. So our dress here has a different look to it, though I worked and tried until I wanted to throw the whole thing into the garbage! We just decided to go with what we were getting and luckily Molly didn't care a bit!
I am one of those fortunate people who get to spend their days doing things I love, quilting & teaching piano. I also love to read, give me a good book and I'm in heaven! We have 4 wonderful grown children with the best daughter/son-in-laws! And currently 7 adorable grand kids and a good husband who supports me in what ever hair brain idea I come up with, which is kind of constant! Life is good.
