    Birthday Dress

    I can't believe DGD is 3! I made her a traditional dress and she loved it! Big sis got something too! It's hard being a long-distance grandma, but the post office gets a lot of business from me!

    They both look a lot like you!
    People who start projects and never finish them are cooler
    than people who never start projects at all.

    You are so right, it is hard being a long distance grandma. Heartbreaking at times even. And yes, our PO gets a workout also. I have made a lot of pillowcases for my dgs for all the holidays and hobbies and sports and whatever else I can think of so I can stay in touch and they will know who I am. Really wish they lived closer!!!

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    I use to enjoy making my friends little girls dresses. You did a really good job. Now wonder she loves it.
