yay! i am so happy i (ahem!) designed and sewn another dress!
well, lil j’s new friend has invited us for her 1st birthday party this weekend. naturally i got excited. not only for lil j (who is happily practising happy birthday song lately, and is learning to ‘make new friends’) but also for the opportunity to hand made another gift for a little girl.
a pinafore was what i had in mind but i also thought it would be quite plain. so i decided to combine a pinny with a bubble dress and the result was a lovely piece that i so, so wished lil j was a girl for a moment so that i could dress her up! (i know, the same sentiment each time i made a dress) but it’s ok, i know some other little girl will be wearing it, and i am just as happy i get the chance to make it for her.
Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life, to mind your own business and to work with your hands, just as we told you, so that your daily life may win the respect of outsiders and so that you will not be dependent on anybody. 1 Thessalonians 4:11-12
