Happy Epiphany and 2013!
Happy Epiphany or Three Kings Day to Everyone! Here it is the 12th day of Christmas, and if I wait any longer, it will really be too late to show off my new Christmas dress until next year.
The train is not new, but how I love to get it out and play with it every year!
And now for the story of how I got my new dress. MamaT's grand-daughter wanted to sew a Christmas dress. MamaT says she only has very basic sewing skills, so Ryin's mom picked out a one-hour dress pattern with only one button, and Ryin picked out the material and trim. It took them an hour just to cut out the pieces. Ryin sewed all the straight seams and the button on herself. NanaT sewed the curvy seams and trim. They designed the matching purse together. Three days later, they got the project all finished. It wasn't until after Christmas that MamaT found time to sew my dress, so we didn't get a photo together. We think the dresses will still fit us both next year.
And we wish you all a very wonderful 2013!
