Wedding dress clasps commisioned
Going to finish those 2 Baby girl dresses today.
Yummy Battenburg lace with some type of soft satin sash and a baby slip with heirloom layered lace skirt to dress up any dress, not just this baby dress.
Yum, Yum lace. Love it and the collection is still growing. I admit the craving and the manageability of it all. Oh I miss that tatted collar I put on that wedding dress. It was so heavenly and delicate!
I have looked and looked for some nice old fashioned aprons to keep grand babys dresses clean looking and can’t find any. Also can’t find any baby girl slips that are made of natural fibers. Ick! the thought of scratchy polyester next to a baby girls skin still just doesn’t sit right with me.
The only one left in my family that remembers what I remember…ironing, vacuuming the ceiling and dusting shelves…says that “that generation(our Mom’s) had the time to do that and we just don’t we have a life”. Hmmmm, yeah….I still do it even working and in the Military!
There is just something special to walk in your home with a clean smell and…a glow…just aren’t words. It’s called spring and holiday cleaning.
I simply can not create unless things are at least ordered in stacks!
Mom …she did contributed to the economic stimulus by hiring someone to do it. I would if I could find someone but haven’t since 2000 when maids stared banding together for the quick clean companies.
Well That new serger is calling my name but the dreads have got me.
No, no computer on the thing but this week my kinetic energy related to electronics has been cursed. Not as badly as usual but still, makes me nervous.
The hand drafting is so easy compared to actually getting a machine to work sometimes. I did take the 1960 machine into the Gromms sewing center and they were amazed at how it looked and sewed. Nice tight seams…picking stitches out of one of it’s work is nie-on-impossible. They just don’t make them like that any more! All metal parts and attachments gallor. The machine guys were fascinated and told me it had been years since they had seen a complete set that looked like new. Mom serviced the thing herself for 50 years…made me so proud!
I was amazed at the things the new serger could do. It’s basically the 1950’s machine with 2 needles and 4 spools of thread. My old one just did straight edging. It was so old they said the serial number couldn’t even be tracked!
As for this computer blog funny for today:
When I hit the proofread button on my posts it says I am BIASED to use the word “Lady”…. Hummm yeah….since when did using the word Lady become politically incorrect and offensive? What has Lady Ga GA done now???!!!
Guess I should go play with the new serger thingy Huh? Something hilarious is bound to occur, I assure you.
