Good for you Babe! Doesn't it feel good to complete such a special project? I didn't make my granddaughter an Easter dress this year, I envy your accomplishment, lucky great granddaughters!

Well done Babe, I will let only you into my secret, before my right hand became a problem I could knit quite well.

Good job!!! I think it is great that you sew for them. I think hand made things are so much nicer and much better gifts than mass-produced stuff.

Good for you babe!! I am proud of you and your lucky family.

I have been a seamstress since jr. high school, won't say what decade that was, but I have taking up quilting, or rather piecing, off and on for the last 35 years. I just ended a 10 year drought on creative sewing projects and last week finished a pieced baby quilt for my nephew. Many times over the last 10 years I have tried to sit down and get back into quilting, but it just would not happen. Until last month. It feels pretty good to be able to occupy my time with sewing.
