    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.
