Baptism and a name change!

Wow!! It's been awhile, but I have a lot to show you. First of all, Raya's baptism. Well, I finished the gown and it looks really nice. My personality is to procrastinate. And I do it so well! So on Saturday morning, I was putting the finishing touches on the gown. I don't know if I mentioned this before, but this was the second gown I've made. Six years ago I made one out of my step-daughter's shawl from HER wedding dress. The fabric for that one was plain, so I added lace to that one. As I showed earlier, I incorporated the lace on my train into the back of Raya's gown. I don't know if the pictures really show it, but here it is...

OOPS!! There I go again....making y'all look sideways at the silly screen. But if you look really close, you will see the lace on the bottom of the dress and across the bodice. That lace was along the bottom of my entire skirt.

Let's try this again....

Here you can see the lace on the back of the gown. This was the train to my dress so I just incorporated it into Raya's.

The baptism went well. It was on Saturday evening, Nov. 12, because my daughter was baptized 22 years earlier on that same day. After the service, we went downstairs for chili and cake. It was a nice evening. God bless you, Raya Grace!!

The big honkin' trailer has been put away for the winter. All the bedding was washed and packed, BOUNCE sheets everywhere to stop the little critters from taking up residence. Everything tucked away for the winter. (insert a sad face here).

My little chickadee....is also packed away for winter. I was trying to talk Honey Baby into keeping it in the small shop so I could work on it this winter. This didn't work, but I guess it's okay as I may have to have surgery on my hand and I wouldn't be able to do anything anyway. Then I would hear about it all next year!! "She wanted it in the shop so she could work on it and she didn't touch it at all!" I packed it up good (l o v e Rubbermaid), and I already miss it. I'm sure some of you know just what I mean. I would love to keep it outside and hang a wreath on it's door for the Holidays...but it just is not possible. (sniffle)

Time to close for the night!! Have a great evening!!

  1. Hi Amy,
    Thanks for stopping by my blog ...you asked about the lamb and it is a magnet so it holds needles really well. I got it at Shepherd's bush. They are online too. I love the blessing gown. The one I had when I was born is the one everyone from cousins to my own girls used. Now it is framed and everyone want it now.
