I just had to show you Wendy's new Easter dress! I made this from a beautiful hankerchief given to me by Elaine Jackson in a doll swap four years ago. I hesitated over cutting into it, but it was just so perfect! I embroidered the little flowers on the front to match the original crochet edging. So pretty. She is a very happy girl now- this was her first new Easter dress in two years!
I hope you are all enjoying a blessed day. The kids and I will be taking dinner to my brother, Jonathan, tonight who is in the hospital, but coming home tomorrow. He was driving his little Honda scooter and got hit by a car! This was two weeks ago and it's been a really tough time for him. His left leg was broken in a really horrific way and they couldn't even put the plates and pins in until this past Thursday because there was so much swelling. There was so much damage due to road rash on the skin that they had to do a skin graft. Bless his heart, he has been so great through this. And, of course, we are just so thankful that it wasn't worse!
Yesterday, Kelly and I set this up for our six (!) kids so they could make these:I don't care how old these kids get, they still love to make Easter eggs! Actually, I have to qualify that last bit. Carmen was not here so it was five kids. She spent Spring Break in Colorado with her dear friend. She tried to ski and found out that she inherited the "no ski" gene! Sorry Carmen!
Well, I'm off to munch on jelly beans! Hugs out to all!
