The only sewing happening in my world is an alteration to a dress that I had originally offered to sew.
|The perfect oyster color for my sister's soft summer coloring, and just right for an outdoor casual wedding.|
|Alas, I don't have time to sew a dress, so I am very pleased to do alterations instead.|
In fact this dress is so perfect - maybe better than I could have done, right?
I am so relieved that she found a dress (on sale, no less!)

My sister has fallen in love with a wonderful guy and my family loves him and his delightful daughter, too. They will be married in June. I think the happy couple would agree they feel like Elvis:
I had to rearrange my commitments because a tidal wave of good luck has washed into my world over the last several weeks and I have been very busy making room for all the new amazingness.
Oh, and one more thing that brightened my day - a lovely card from my step-daughter:
Don't base it on your child's accomplishments or their acknowledgement of your hard work.
If you have lost a child, fear you may never have a child, or chose not to bear children because it is not right for you, cherish yourself even more.
You, in your heart, you know the price of motherhood.
You are my hero.
