I believe this was in 1994 because my daughter Josephine is hiding under my long skirt.
Missy and I are dressed to be part of our friends’, Colleen and Brad, Wedding.
I remade my gown into my quilted Christmas tree skirt. I get to see it once a year and think of my friends and my daughter (as I quilted it while pregnant with her – and she passed away, while an infant. In fact… she would have been 22 today! Happy Birthday my little angel-girl!)
Ms. Colleen posted this picture on her facebook page. How fortuitous! I guess my interest in historical clothing goes back longer than I thought. And, as I am thinking about it… Momma made me a dress for snowball back in high school that would be a nod to past fashion. I will have to locate that photo as well.
Welcome to the NEW YEAR! I hope your holiday celebrations were wonderful!
Friday night, when I got home, I tucked right back in to Cousin Amy’s gift project. I wanted to finish as many as I could before she came over for pizza on Sunday night. Knock off for me is usually 10pm. After that my stitches get messy.
