At the beginning of the summer, I ordered the pattern for the 1914 Afternoon Dress from Mrs. Chancey’s business, Sense and Sensibility Patterns. I’d been looking at it for a long time and finally decided to go ahead and work toward making it. I wanted to make it a light pink, but decided against it because of two things – I couldn’t find the right shade of pink… and I get things dirty SO quickly, even when I’m being extremely careful. I decided on a dark-ish green, and it’s now working out wonderfully at Christmas, because it means I have a Christmas dress! I made a red sash to go with it at Christmastime:
This morning we had a Christmas cookie exchange brunch at a friend’s house, which was lovely and Christmas-sy.
(Molasses Crinkles. My favorite cookie, especially when warm!)
Then we came home and I listened to some history lectures while crocheting these wonderful wreaths in preparation for our Christmas Tea on Tuesday. Tonight our mother-daughter ensemble is singing at a Christmas Party. Please pray for us… I don’t care if we sing well or poorly, as long as we show Christ.
(those of you who are waiting for the promised Dragon post, it’s in the works. I remembered I had to do more research than I originally thought… it’s mostly written, though, but quite lengthy!)
