"And now, my sons, remember, remember that it is upon the rock of our Redeemer, who is Christ, the Son of God, that ye must build your foundation; that when the devil shall send forth his mighty winds, yea, his shafts in the whirlwind, yea, when all his hail and his mighty storm shall beat upon you, it shall have no power over you to drag you down to the gulf of misery and endless wo, because of the rock upon which ye are built, which is a sure foundation, a foundation whereon if men build they cannot fall."

Helaman 5:12

Making Easter dresses

In a walk-in closet in my craft/sewing room I have fabric--a lot of fabric. Some of it had been given to me a year or so ago. I have it hanging from hangers so I can see what I have. This helps with the creative juices.

The other day I got into a mood to make something. I haven't made dresses for the girls in ages. The last time I made dresses there was only one girl to sew for. Now I have 4 girls. If I made something for one I would have to make for all.
In all this I had to unpick all the zippers to get them to come out right. I once put the wrong lower band on the wrong skirt. Had to unpick and resew that one on the right skirt. But over all it has been a success.

Two weeks later I have four dresses nearly complete. I didn't tell them I was making them until I needed to see if they fit. When I pulled them out last night the girls got all excited. The draw back is they have to wait until Easter to wear them. The youngest one was sure I would change my mind and let her wear it sooner.

Now I need to make ties for the boys...don't worry they won't be made with the flower print.
