  1. Holy Smoke, beauty, brains, talent and poise,(for my knuckle-dragging SF brothers, poise=a dignified self-confident manner and bearing)
    all in the same person. You must be one proud papa Brock. When the missus sees this I'm sure to have to get her a new Sunday dress.
    Thanks for hosting a great PATCON too.

  3. A dying art and I'm sad to say I didn't take after my mom and my grandmothers in the sewing department.

    My mom won many awards for sewing. She made all mine and my sister clothes growing up. She made my prom dress!!!

    I have many handmade blankets from my grandma's on both sides. They were given as gifts for my HS graduation for my hopechest, my wedding, my babyshowers.

    When I was a young adult, I thought to myself some gift, Ha! They couldn't buy me something new?! Now I wish I had of shown the appreciation and gratitude every true seamtress is due, especially to my own family. Family friends of my grandmas knitted and crocheted baby outfits and blankets for me. I cherish all of them. I still have the outfits knitted for me as an infant.

    The blankets, esp the one my great-grandma made is one of my most prized possessions. If only I knew then what I know now. Those days are gone.

    Carry on Ms. Pamela Warren!!!

      Such a shame and I'm afraid the only way to keep some of the old ways would be for like souls to ban together.

    2. Ding, ding, ding!!! Give that man a cigar!! Brock, you, Sir, have nailed it on the head!! Like minded people with one faith, one culture and a common language, banding, living and working together to provide food, clothing and shelter shared and traded within and to provide security so that trading outside the fold can be engaged in thus creating a wonderful, fulfilling lifestyle that produces sound marriages, we'll behaved children and no need of governmenta nanny state meddling!! Sign us up! Homeschooling parents of 7, you now are figuring out who we are!! ☺

  5. To Brock and All Comments Here,
    I don't know if I'm more shocked to see this, or more proud to see this. I am beaming both inside and out!
    Thank you, Brock, for all the fun times of making things for you and Miss Dixie (though altering your "Hunley" suit down several sizes wasn't all that much fun!), and thank you for taking the time to post this MOST special piece for me. And thank you to ALL who posted such supportive words of praise, it means so much to me.
    I danced in the Sacred Circle at PowWow today, and didn't think the day could get any better. Then I saw this piece. I am humbled by the kind words, and very thankful that I was given the gift of sewing so many, many years ago.
    Thank you again to everyone, I am undeserving of such esteem.
    Most Confederately Yours,
    Pamela Warren

    1. Thank you, but am surprised you just found out about it as I sent it to T two years ago when I posted it. :)

    2. Heh, I don't always get to see what you post. Thankfully T "shelters" me from certain events (that you might post), because of........well, you know why!
      Remember when Shanna asked you to "watch over her daddy", and your reply was "that's asking the fox to guard the hen house"? Kind of the same thing around here.

      :) Funny as I just ran across her note the other day.
