I made this little yellow dress for my granddaughter who is celebrating her third birthday tomorrow. She wanted a "grandma dress", which is what the granddaugher's all call the dresses that I make for them. This fabric has small white butterflies all over it that don't show up on the picture. I put white rick rack around the neck, sleeves and waist. The hem stitched with a fold is both decorative and sturdy. It's almost impossible to pull the hem out since it is stitched into the fold.
I like to use buttons on little girl's dresses. I bought these pretty daisy buttons for this dress.
I don't feel like I accomplished very much today. My knee was bothering me, and that was making my back hurt. It's hard to do your best when you don't feel good.
We haven't gotten any rain yet, but it has turned cooler. We call it "blackberry winter". It seems like it always cools off the week the blackberries bloom. We don't have any cultivated ones, but we see wild ones growing in the road ditches and fences.
I didn't get the three cakes made for tomorrow's party, so I'm going to have to shake a leg and get to work early tomorrow. Perhaps I can get off early to go have some fun at the party, too! This may be the busiest weekend we have. Mother's Day is a "cake" holiday.
I still have some paperwork to do, then I need to get to bed.
Happy Mother's Day to all mother's and mother's-to-be!
