When my grand~daughter Kate slept over last week~end we went on a treasure hunt in some boxes I had stored away and discovered a journal I called "Nana 1" I managed to write quite alot about my first grand~daughter who happen to arrive in my life exactly at the right time as I was in treatment and recovery for cancer.........life I have found, has a peculiar way of serving up joy and difficulty on the same tray and of course I chose joy and hung on with pleasure. (hands to work~hearts to God...♥)
So long story short I had a bit of time "off" from work and I wanted to make Kates' christening gown...I am not a seamstress by any stretch but managed to get this one right (with some help reading the pattern from my dear friend Mary).( The pattern was a "Vogue' I called it "vague!" lol!)
So here we are all these years later up in bed with Kate reading all about herself...she got to the page about the making of her christening dress and she said,"You made my dress???" I said"Yes I did. Would you like to see it?"
Worn again by grand~daughter Isabel~♥
Kate said maybe someday her daughter would wear it.....and that my friends is all a Nana could wish for....♥
