Thankful for more blessings

I am one again thankful for more blessings from friends. You know I do sew as well, that is why I posted two projects I had done before I posted this one. I didn't want you to think that I was a total slacker! I said total, I didn't try to intimate that I didn't have slacker tendencies. All of that aside...

Once again a treasure of a friend gave the gift of her time to sew for our baby.

Our Baby Mommy is in love with bishops. It is a good thing because while they look good on any baby, they really look good on our baby!!

This precious red polka dot bishop is from a poly/cotton fabric found in the closet. I have no recollection of buying, using or being gifted with this fabric. It was just there. The pattern is once again "Beginnings" from Australian Smocking and Embroidery, issue #73. The smocking plate is Cherry Surprise, also from AS&E, # 42.

A simple design on a simple fabric is sometimes best. I think we sometimes try to do bigger and better when simple is all that needs to be said.

Best of all is seeing it modeled by our baby.

She wore it too church last Sunday with her new red Mary-Janes that she promptly kicked off. She has recently discovered the mirror and how to laugh. It does a Mimi's heart good to see Mommy and Baby having such fun together.


  1. Mommy, baby, and dress are all beautiful! I love being a Mimi!

  2. She is so cute that she would be adorable in just a diaper, but this dress is really great! Love her smile!

  3. Such a sweet dress from a super sweet friend! Love seeing Mommy and Baby laughing. Does all our hearts good! I know you miss them both, even if you are on the trip of a lifetime!

  4. I love the "laughing" photo!!!!!
    Know you will have a fabulous trip!

  5. Beautiful dress on a gorgeous baby! Enjoy your travels! Baby mommy looks so well, I hope she is feeling as well as she looks.

  6. Awe - she's just darling - my favorite pic is the last one posted - you can just tell that mama and baby are in total love! soooo precious! Smocked Bishops are my fav and I just love this one!

  7. Sigh....could gaze upon that baby smile all day....I can almost hear the giggle!

  8. Oh, My, she is just so gorgeous and wears this little bishop beautifully.

  9. What a precious little gift from God...she is just A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E!!

    The red floss just pops on this darling little bishop & I love that plate...must make a note of it. What a wonderful gift!!
