What a wonderful thing to have a day when we can celebrate the mother’s that helped form us into who we are today. I have been blessed to have a godly, loving mom who has always been a great example to me. She taught me what it was to be a child of God, has loved me unconditionally and encouraged me to do my best.
My aunt (mom’s sister) was also very influential in my life, as were both of my grandmother’s. All godly women. I took this picture of myself, mom and her sister last year shortly before my aunt passed away. It’s not the best picture, but I’m glad that I have it.
Be sure and take time to celebrate you mom today! If you mom is no longer with you, enjoy and celebrate the memories!
This past week I had plenty of time to play around in my sewing room, cleaning, organizing, etc. while hubby was away. I did manage to finish up a couple of projects that were nearly finished.
The first project finished was a dress from SATB in January. The dress is “Vintage Visions” by Trisha Smith. It is the sweetest dress. I had set it aside due to my questions about the embroidery design and pocket placement – thinking I had lost the embroidery template. Once I realized that it was a freehand drawing I went ahead and drew in my design. Fingers crossed that the pockets are in the right place! I can’t wait to see this sweet dress on Livvy.
The next project was finishing up a top that I used for demonstration purposes at SATB. The top is the Jane pattern from Classic Sewing magazine. I finished up the top and made some shorts to go with it.
Ellas was excited about this outfit and I’m sure it will look so cute on her! The whale design is from Junebug Designs, “Whale of A Tale” – if you can find it at and heirloom shop, snatch it up as it is out of print.
I hope to finish a few more UFO’s that I found this week! Until then……
Happy Mother’s Day!!!
