I want to thank everyone for their kind words. Our new grand daughter is doing great! Her parents are doing great also.
Here is a picture of the dress she was wearing in the photo.
It is a Cherry Williams bishop in a size 3 month. The neck size was okay but the rest was way too big. The fabric is Martha Pullen's Victorian Batiste.
I wanted to show you the buttons/beads I used as an embellishment for the dress. I had bought them years before at Michael's. They are really tiny.
My thought were when I first saw them was to use them on Wee care gowns instead of embroidering bullion roses. They can be added to almost any smocking plate.
They worked perfect on my new born Valentine baby dress.
They come in a package and I transferred them to the container show here. It is a almost like a Tic Tac mint container.
I will close with a photo that just brings tears to my eyes and peace to my heart. It is a great feeling when you know that you have raised your sons right. :'-)
Hope you have a great day!
