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)
