I can do this. This baby lives 7 hours away from me. I can do this. How will I know if the mama will like the fabric I choose? I can do this. The mama wants 'simple'. I can't find a 'simple' christening gown pattern. I can do this. What size will the sweetie be when the big day arrives? I can do this. I haven't sewn heirloom style in years. I CAN DO THIS!! For crying out loud, just do it. So I marched myself down to the fabric store and bought a pattern, silk batiste, entreduex, beading, thread and lace. And guess what? I DID THIS!!
|And so it began. Pattern cut out and pleats finished.|
|Pleats, lace, entreduex and embroidery.|
|Packed ever so carefully for the journey. But will it fit?|
|YES! It fits and the sweet family is happy with the whole thing!|
Notice how her hands are positioned for prayer?
It was a wonderful day making sweet, tender memories. And I thank this special family for allowing me to participate in such a personal way! I will forever love and pray for this little one.
