Dedicated to my Mother
Hi everyone and thank you for popping by and leaving such lovely comments over the past 2 days. Can I say thank you for putting up with my blog sites problems. It's been my lack of technical skills.
Today I'm dedicating my blog to my mother's skills. As today would have been her 93rd Birthday
but sadly she passed away 10 years ago.
The picture coming up on my blog is of me in the middle in a fancy dress costume my mother made me
I am showing you this because I know you crafty people will appreciate the work that went into this.
I am dressed as a coronation cake. My mother made this and how she got Westminster Abbey printed
on the blouse I don't know. No computers in those days. My mother was very good at sewing and design, she made nearly all mine and my 2 sisters dresses. she also made and designed her own wedding dress and bridesmaids dresses.
One dress I remember well was a gold taffeta dress, It had fairies embroidered on it by my grandmother
on her first electric sewing machine. No fancy embroidery stitches in the early fifties.
Well I have waffled on enough now I hope I haven't bored you or made you go to sleep.
put on to acetate, and then covered with pearls. The butterfly peel offs were from the Glitter Girls
