I marvel at the beautiful things that human hands can create, especially when those things are made with love.
Over the weekend, my baby daughter and I had were able to participate in a very special ladies tea. The place was bustling with pretty little girls in their twirly dresses. A great many of the dresses were made by a talented woman who hand-stitched the dearest frocks for the girls (daughters, granddaughters, and nieces) in her life. Some of the dresses were around 50 years old! The details were amazing. The fabrics were lovely. The program for the tea was a “fashion show” during which each dress was modeled by a girl and commented upon by the seamstress herself.
I was so pleased to be asked to dress Charlotte in one of the amazing creations (although I was terribly nervous about standing up on the stage so that everyone could see the dress.). The hand smocking was incredible. And the color was perfect for my sweet Charlotte’s eyes.

How gorgeous! I had a friend in NC that did that and I never could believe my eyes at the finished masterpiece. Such intricate skills. Charlotte, of course, made it even more beautiful. 🙂 Love, Shelley
