Wordless Wednesday #222 ~ Mr. G Potted the Deck Plants

Thank-you SO much Mr. G.
I wasn't going to bother this year.
Certainly glad you did.
So far God is doing most of the watering.

Patriotic Fabric Card

       I actually made this card for someone for the this past Memorial Holiday. Maybe we don't send greeting cards for those holidays, but I needed to thank someone for flowers they got for the cemetery.      
      Wouldn't it work for the fourth of July as well?    I think they'd make nice invitation cards as well, or if someone is unfortunate to not be feeling well, a get well card. I think we are about to have a generation that won't know what it's like to send or receive cards in the mail.

Tuesday Teaser
 I actually had some fabric from a thrift store find that had some silver sparkle outlined stars.
 My cards are made from a half sheet of card stock.
I ripped a sheet of paper into fourths to match a section of the card.

 One section of the paper became my template to help me decide how long and large
 to cut my scrap pieces of fabric.

When I was satisfied with the design,
I used the template to cut a piece of white fabric.

Hand printed.

Memory Mon 55 ~My Girl's Memory Patterns

 The patterns I used to make my daughter's junior and senior prom dresses.
Their girls, my grand daughters, are now in college.
Notice how much their patterns cost and how much my pattern for prom costs.
only a generation later.
The cost from their generation now hasn't changed that much. Wonder why?
Below view B for one and view C for the other.
Above view E.
And then I made my oldest daughter's wedding dress. I also made the bridal party dresses & mine. It took about a year to make them all. Taking so much time allowed me not to stress out at all. I so enjoyed it. However,  I never wanted to do this as a business.  That would be stressful. 
as in view 1.
I added pearls to the lace.
