What a gorgeous day today was. Well, it was Wisconsin spring, which means that one minute it was warm and lovely, and the next it was windy and "brisk". ;-)
Still, I did get a chance to get some yard work done. I got out the little flower bed things, birds and such, and the bird bath, and summer feeders, and I was able to get two more hanging baskets planted for the front porch. I didn't take time to photograph it all but I will try to do that tomorrow!
My first project though was inside. I found out yesterday that we are to be Godparents to MY little Maggie and her 3 year old brother Josh!!! I am so excited and honored I can hardly contain myself! The big problem is that baptism is NEXT weekend in COLORADO! sigh. My favorite cousin wants to just have a proxy do our part so she can go ahead with the baptism right away. Still, I needed to make a gown for my little namesake. If I had more time I would have done some special embroidery on the front, but I need to get it in the mail on Monday so she will have it in time! I think the yellow accents will go good with her lovely red hair!
Another interesting thing I discovered was that blogger was not sending me my comments to approve! I discovered SIXTEEN comments for a past post!! Man, what a bummer! It's like discovering the mail man didn't bother to deliver a bunch of letters. I'm off to reply to them now! ;-)

What a beautiful little gown. I'm sure it will be treasured. Like you,when I made gowns for my nieces and nephews I didn't have as much time as I would have liked.

What a beautiful gown! I've been catching up on my blog reading and just realized that I really should have gone to the Rosemont show this year. UGH. As for Laura W -- she's fantastic. I actually have two pieces of her hand dyed fabric. So far I've only had the courage to cut into one :0).
