I’ve been waiting for the right time to share this post. I’m sure that you’d agree with me when I say that sewing buddies are the best!!! This theory is proven to be true again. My sewing buddies are the best!!!
Our local smocking guild has grown quite a bit this past year and I’ve made several new friends because of that. One of our newer members, Janice, brought in a gorgeous Christening gown, slip and bonnet at the second meeting that she attended. Her bonnet was displayed on a beautiful hand painted bonnet stand. I admired it and found out that she had made the bonnet stand as well as the beautiful outfit. Of course, I had to ask her if I could commission her to make a bonnet stand for me. I was thrilled when she said that she would be happy to. I was in no particular hurry.
Imagine my surprise when a couple months later Janice arrived the meeting with not one, but 2 beautiful stands!!!
I have the greatest respect for anyone that can not only sew, but also paint. I can hardly pain my nails, much less something pretty! Both stands are beautiful! Her painting is as lovely as her sewing! What a wonderful gift that she has given to me!!!
Aren’t these so pretty!!! I couldn’t wait to display a bonnet on one of these.
I can’t wait to bring my bonnet and stand to the class that I’ll be teaching this week. I cannot think of a prettier way to display a bonnet than on one of these stands. It sure beats the candle sticks I’ve been using. LOL! Thank you Janice for making these beautiful stands for me – I am so blessed to count you as one of my friends!
