Christmas nightie!

Here is a sweet little nightie that I just finished for a customer. It has a large, round yoke edged in red whipstitched piping. The yoke is shadow embroidered with a Christmas tree and presents. I added glass beads to the tree for a little extra sparkle :o) Then I hand smocked it with a red and green geometric design.

I think she will look super cute on Christmas morning! :o)
Have a great day!

teeny tiny.....

I just completed an order for tiny little romper for a preemie/newborn boy. The mom wants to bring him home from the hospital in it. It was fun to make a little boy's outfit for a change. :o)

Have a nice week!

Another birthday wish....

I have to wish my sweet daughter a happy birthday! She turns 12 today. I was looking at some old pictures where she used to model sets for me. I found this sweet little one :o) I think she was only 3 1/2 here! She was modeling a little Betsy Ross smocked patriotic jumper.

My photography (and camera) has improved a lot since then. lol Here was the last time she modeled for me. It was a dupion silk smocked dress that she helped design.
((sigh)) where does time go?? Have a great weekend everyone!

A Birthday Wish

It is hard to believe, but my "baby" boy turns 15 today.........(((sigh))) Where did all that time disappear? Some may remember my post earlier in the year about how he insisted I make him some Union Jack golf trousers in honor of his favorite golfer, Ian Poulter. Well, here is the rest of the story..... Because of those trousers, he actually got to MEET his hero at the TPC!! :o) Not only did he get to meet Ian, but he also met his 2nd favorite golfer and fellow European, Lee Westwood. Here they all are together.

They were both so friendly and kind to my son that I will be their fans for life. Congrats to them for winning the Ryder Cup. And a HUGE happy birthday to my sweet son :o)
