Mother of the Bride Dress

Some of you will remember that I made a dress for my sister for her daughter's wedding.
See that post here.
The wedding was a week ago and my sis wore her lovely dress and received lots of compliments.
That makes me so happy because my little sis has been through some really difficult places in life, but she has come through smiling, with a positive attitude and still loving God.

Her son is walking her to her chair.
I think she looks so pretty.
Susan is a natural blonde and stays very active,
she's 18 months younger than myself.

Her daughter is a very special girl, I love her so much.
I was heart broken not to make it to her wedding, but some things just are not possible.
Her two boys flank her and the bride and groom.

Susan sent me a beautiful photo that was taken by a friend of Susans'.
This was taken on the coast of Washington near where I was born.

To me, this is the most beautiful place in the whole world.
It's probably native land, so we would not be allowed to go here.

I am gone for the next week, I won't be around, but I will visit you as soon as I possibly can.

Have a wonderful week!!!



Here is something that someone sent me, it was too cute not to pass on.
"Senior version of Jesus Loves Me"

Here is a new version just for us who have white hair or no hair at all. For us over middle age (or even those almost there) and all you others, check out this newest version of Jesus Loves Me.

Jesus loves me, this I know,
Though my hair is white as snow
Though my sight is growing dim,
Still He bids me trust in Him.

Though my steps are oh, so slow,
With my hand in His I'll go
On through life, let come what may,
He'll be there to lead the way.

When the nights are dark and long,
In my heart He puts a song.
Telling me in words so clear,
"Have no fear, for I am near."

When my work on earth is done,
And life's victories have been won.
He will take me home above,
Then I'll understand His love

I love Jesus, does He know?
Have I ever told Him so?
Jesus loves to hear me say,
That I love Him every day.

The dress you made is as lovely as is the beautiful smile on your sister's face. I wish the young couple much happiness...weddings are a blessing as the family tree grows. It is a little sad when all the family can't be together to celebrate due to distance or other circumstances but I'm sure they knew your love and thoughts were with them.

Hi Cindy, I missed your post last week or so as our family was here. I just happened to see this one on my blogroll at the side of my blog this morning. Your sister looks so beautiful in the dress you made her. It is perfect. Also her daughter looks very beautiful on her wedding day. I'm glad the wedding went well. I enjoy seeing your new friend's beautiful gardens as well. What a wonderful chance meeting and friendship you have now. I hope your week is going well and you are enjoying the summer weather. Blessings and hugs, Pam

Hi Cindy!
I was just popping over to see what you've been up to...and realized I'd read this post already.
Thought I left a comment too...but you know what?
I read so many blogs and have lots of tabs opened at once...that I think I'm leaving a comment and then really, I'm not!
I should probably come up with a better system.
Anyway--- your sister's dress looks beautiful. I know she is happy to have you sew for her.
I love the picture of the native land
Hope you are having a nice break...see you when you get back.
