Birthday Dresses...

Finished! I was able to completely finish
the birthday sewing projects.

As a preface, I'll begin with last week...

Mommy: "Beth, is there anything particular
that you would like for your birthday?"

Beth: (thinking)"Mmm... no. I like anything."
(thinking, again)"Mmm... a dress! A pink one!"

The next day, we went to our local supercenter
to pick out the fabric for Beth's pink birthday dress.
When she found the fabric she liked,
she and Carolynne noticed some blue fabric
of the same print.
Carolynne: "I want a blue dress."
Beth: "Yeah! Can Carolynne have a blue one, too,

for my birthday and I'll have a pink one?"

That was precious to this mama.
Beth wanted Carolynne to have
a 'birthday dress', too, for Beth's birthday.
Their sweet relationship just melts my heart.
(they do get their "off" days, too, by the way) ;o)

Here they were today, trying on their new dresses
(they wanted to wear them to church this evening)...

Pink and blue sweeties
('cotton candy' colors, as Ally says)

I, also, made Beth a pink pinafore

to go over her new dress.
Carolynne already had a white one...

They were tickled!

(and so was I)

(pattern used was Simplicity 8690)

Your little girls are just so precious! And their new dresses are just so sweet! You are such a talented seamstress. I wish I could sew like that. I just love reading about you and your sweet family. I am still just amazed and inspired by how you are able to keep on without your husband at home. You have such strength. You are really blessed. ~Holly

I love to find material that is the same print, just different colors.

Those dresses are adorable. I would I could sew that good. I can't though. I've tried. You did a great job and they look absolutely beautiful in them.

PS...sorry I haven't been coming around much lately. For now the problems I was having with your site seem to have disappeared. So I'm back!! If you'll have me. I plan to play catch up with you over the next few days.

While my beloved is away... the Lord surely sustains me and gets us all through. ;o)

Kim ~ lol. Thank you. I, too, love to find fabric of the same print/different color. I was so glad the lil' girls picked it out. ;o)

Pam in Jerusalem ~ Thank you. It was a blessing to hear Beth wanted to share with her lil' sister. How precious it was!

Mrs. Bowman ~ Thank you very much.
It was a blessing to hear from you. I've wondered how you've been and am praying for you. ;o)
Ally is feeling okay. She still has some tingling and such but we are thankful it is not worse. ;o) We appreciate your concern and prayers.

Dina ~ Thank you. ;o)

Tracy ~ Thank you, also. It warmed my heart when she thought of her sister. ;o)

Jill ~ Thank you. ;o)

Mrs. C ~ Thank you. I was glad they liked them so much. ;o)

Marci ~ Thank you very much. I love the look and the practicality of the pinafores. ;o)

Chyrll ~ Thank you. ;o)

Kristi ~ Thank you. How sweet that Hannah loved her pinafore. I love them and hope to make more one day. ;o)

Kristy Jo ~ Thank you very much. ;o) If you sew something up, I'd love to know! When my beloved called today he said he liked the dresses. That was a blessing to hear that tickled my heart. ;o)

Debhmom3 ~ Thank you. ;o) Yes, children are a blessing for sure! I am thankful it was the Lord's will for us to have a few. ;o)

Amy ~ Thank you. *Ü* I loved that picture, too. ;o) I was thankful my beloved was able to see them. ;o)

Tamara P ~ Thank you for your kind words and birthday wishes. I have grown to love sewing.
Thank you for visiting me and leaving a comment. It was a delightful surprise.
Praying for you. ;o)

Julie ~ Great to hear from you! I'm so glad whatever the trouble was with visiting seems to have subsided. yea!
I never could sew, either, by the way. About 6 years ago, I learned of the necessity to learn to sew because of our particular dress standards and preferences so my beloved let me take a sewing class at a,then, local sewing store. I was SO glad I did. Everything else has been learned from trial and error. ;o) I do love to sew, though. ;o)

Amy ~ Thank you. ;o) And happy birthday to your sister. I'm sure it will be a special day.

~ Christina
