A very niece idea

My older sister and I had our second daughters a week apart from each other. I made them matching smocked dresses–and I still know right where Michelle’s is.

Laura is coming tomorrow with her husband and baby daughter, who would be about the right size now for one of those dresses. (I have no idea if my sister kept hers all these years. White with green pinstripes and green embroidery if you’re remembering it, Carolyn.)  I haven’t seen Laura since she was a young teenager, and I cannot tell you how excited I am to see them tomorrow!

I’m impressed. I never even tried smocking….just a big chick, chick, chicken, I guess.

Have a wonderful visit! After waiting all of this time to see your niece you get her husband and baby girl too. That’s great.

The one I made my niece was blue gingham with multicolored smocking. Ah, what fun to have a baby around to receive love via needleart!

Heh…my mother made me a smocked dress at that age- we have a picture in the family album. However the very first time I wore it, we happened to get ice cream. The dress: started out white. The ice cream: Black raspberry. You can imagine how that went.
