    Jumpers For Funerals

    Right in the middle of making the girls some Christmas dresses, my uncle passed. I made the girls some dresses for funerals in the summer, but they just weren't appropriate for winter, so I made them some jumpers that they can wear over their long sleeved shirts.

    Sorry to hear of your Uncle's passing.

    Those dresses are gorgeous and so are your girls.

    I too am sorry for your loss. The jumpers are beautiful and so are both girls.

    Thank you, everyone! My consolation is that he's no longer suffering or in pain. For 21 years now, he's been paralyzed from the neck down and it's been a hard road. He was only 28 when he had the accident that paralyzed him and only 49 when he passed away last Tuesday from injuries due to a pedestrian/vehicle accident.

    First, my sympathies.

    They are beautiful!

    And so are the dresses! I like the practical use over blouses.

    Nice job.

    Thanks! I actually started out as a garment sewer, just 6 1/2 years ago. I had one lesson and then the rest I learned from reading a Singer Sewing Dictionary and by trial and error. Then, 3 1/2 years ago I had to have two back to back surgeries, so I figured it was time to learn to quilt since I had 12 weeks of bedrest facing me. I had, again, had one quilting lesson where I made a 12" Double Nine Patch Block. The rest I learned by reading all the beginner quilting books I could get my hands on in that bed rest time.
