What joy the gospel gives me. I can approach the throne of God with confidence, not because I've done a good job at my spiritual duties, but because I'm clothed in the righteousness of Jesus Christ. ~ C.J. Mahaney

Breath of Spring


Finally, I'm posting pictures of the tiny little smocked bishop I finished for Lacey Ann, my grand-niece.  I will have the pleasure of meeting little Miss Lacey this coming weekend, and I can't wait.  It's been too long since I've had my hands on an itty-bitty baby girl.

It was very enjoyable constructing this rosy pink dress from cotton lawn fabric which feels as soft as the delicate breath of spring.  When I look at it, it reminds me of strawberry fluff with whipped cream on top.  The sleeves are trimmed with cotton eyelet and the flowers are smocked on satin ribbon.  Just enough "fuss" to be sweet.  Dreamy....


On Sunday, Tom and I are headed to Cancun to visit Abby and Jonathan.  Our son, Brad is there working with them for several months, and his girlfriend, Hannah, is down there visiting for a few weeks as well.  We're looking forward to spending time with with them, ministering with them in the local villages, and having a little fun on the beach, naturally!

Be looking for a post from Cancun shortly!

A "Work of Art", truly! I'm sure she'll treasure it when she's older.
Love, G~Mama (Gee-Gee for Great Grandmother!)

I can't think of anything more worth holding onto than such a beautiful creation. You did an AWESOME job. Many baby gifts come and go, are appreciated, used and passed on but this one should be a family heirloom, most definitely. I know they'll love it.
Have a great time in Cancun and tell everyone we said hello.
