How did it get to be April so soon?! Our winter snow, drifting at times to 8 feet high, stayed on the ground even through March, though much of it melted some! With the warmer days of April, the grass is now green, the wind is fierce, my seedlings started indoors in February are begging to be placed outside in the sun, and I am torn between gardening and sewing!
Sewing is winning out this week, since I am making three Girls Simple Gathered Shifts for some of our granddaughters to wear at a wedding in May. I am putting several tucks in the skirts to be let out as the girls grow. I have yet to start on dresses for the older girl, and the mother!
Our bags are packed, waiting for my son's phone call saying his wife is in labor! I have a list of things to take, including the sewing machine, serger, patterns, fabric, notions, etc., in case the baby comes before I finish the dresses for the wedding!
Isn't life wonderful?! I hope your sewing projects turn out well, and that you all will have a wonderful year!
10 Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.
13 She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands.
22 She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple.
31 Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.
