    Course they HAD to have purses, made with the back pockets

    Mom promised me pictures of the girls in the dresses and with Daddy! He comes home Wednesday. Took me longer to pick out the threads to get the cargo pockets for the front and back of the skirts than anything. My son felt bad for me so he helped pick out one set of cargo pockets.


    But it was worth it when I saw Mom's face and the girls faces. They wanted to wear them Saturday until Daddy come home. Made me cry. I didn't charge her what I should have because I'm a sap for homecoming military. :wink:

    Sharon, I'm sitting here shaking my head back and forth saying, "boy have you got talent". You have a great gift and are so gracious to share it the way you do. What lucky little girls. So proud for them to be 'Pretty in camo pink'. Thanks for sharing. WOW WOW WOW......

    You are so kind! I really enjoyed making them, knowing that he's coming home Wednesday. It's just such a special time to have these Marines coming home.

    I'm sure she won't mind, I will share them as soon as I get them. I think she's going to end up being a friend. She's young, mid twenties, I think. But maybe I'll get her started sewing and quilting before it's over with...

    I cry every time I look at the pictures, believe me. I don't know if it's cause Dad is coming home to them, if it's me being a big softie, or if it's cause I never had girls. Probably why I spoiled the grandgirls so much and my neices think I can do anything. :lol: :lol:
