I am traveling to Houston on Friday for one last mother-daughter weekend before Lydia arrives in June. It was great timing that we could do this on Mother's Day. It was miraculous that I could find an organist to fill in for me at church this weekend.
I was able to finish another smocked dress before I go. This one is by Michie Mooney. I love her patterns and her blog. Creations by Michie I found the material at a wonderful heirloom shop in Louisville, KY when I was at a meeting of the Southern Health Association in March. The smocking plate was perfect to echo the print of pink flowers and green leaves.
The actual plate was for a bishop dress, so I altered it, omitting some of the design toward the end and repeating the border from the top. I can't wait to take a picture of this dress on Lydia.
I will be taking the sundress, the quilt, and the daygown with me on Friday.
I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. I know I will. I am blessed to have such a wonderful daughter, who is already becoming a wonderful Mom.
