sewing for my babies and their babies

I made nightgowns for my girls and their dollies.
Do you have a stash of fabric that you think "hmm I will use this for this purpose..."

Well, I looked through my collation and realized my saving fabric for children wasn't
going to last forever because children grow up.  So I pulled out these children's knits
and began cutting.

They turned out pretty cute!  The girls like matching their babies too.

creating for my class

I serve in my church the young women aged 12-13 and help the leaders of the other older girls with joint activities.  We are excited to have the completion of the Fort Collins Colorado Temple for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

To give the girls a momento to remember this time and to use at the dedication
I decided to embroider handkerchiefs.  It ended up being quite the job.

As we know anything worth doing has some opposition.  I had my first machine just stop working and I spent too much time probably figuring out how to get the temple embroidery I liked.

I finally nailed down the perspective I liked and using my software for my machine and my husbands loving patience and help with the computer, I got a working design and embroidered and embroidered and embroidered some more.  Sewing in mass is an adventure.  

I am going to count all my hours of work toward my Young Women's Personal Progress Faith Project.

wished blessings of sweet felicity

One of my favorite activities is to make and create for a new baby!
Also blessing a baby and presenting her to be raised as a daughter of God is a reason to celebrate.
This dress was a joy to sew and dream up.

I was inspired by shadow smocking that I saw here!

I also had not ever made a bishop dress.  So I made a couple to prepare myself
for this experience and then took the plunge and made this gown.

At the top of bodice you will notice I made a soft scallop to the edge of the aqua batiste.
Then I pin stitched around it.

My darling girl was angelic in it for her special day.

Here you can see the the pretty Monogram

The hem I did a shadow scallop repeating the style at the bode and a couple of different laces.

With grandma holding her you can see the godets of voile with their pretty
burn out design.  I loved that fabric very sweet.

Kisses from Mama.
Did I say I love this girl?

I set her down and took a picture to show off her hair.  Of all my babies she has the most.
Only Girlie 5 could rival her.
Also I was really proud of the the button loops I crafted with a cast on technique.

Chocolate Strawberry and Vanilla

These little girls are my joy!
And right now they have a Neapolitan of hair color.
With a blonde, read head and a dark baby fuzzy brunette, I have one of each today.
I know tithe growing up the baby hair color fades and other colors show up as they
grow so we will see what in store for them in the future.
