Blessing Dress


Hi, I haven't blogged in a while, I have had 2 surgeries, last year back surgery. This year foot surgery, I can now walk around the house, nice! I have a new project I am working on. I used to make blessing dresses, but I haven't made any for a while. So here is how far I am, need to put the ribbons on the front and fasteners on the back. Made out of satin and sheer tricot with lots of lace and not as many ruffles as I used to do. Let me know what you think!

My daugter passing. pod casts

This last year has been a very hard one! My youngest daughter with trisomy 18 passed away. She turn 18 about a month before passing away. It has been more of an adjustment than I was expecting. I had back surgery in August last year for ruptured discs. And thank goodness for the relief society program in my church, I had so very much help! I wasn't able to do much. I did however get some hot pads crocheted. They have had to help me again, had to have foot surgery and am sort of stuck in my house again. I have done some knitting, studied on Khanacademy.org, such and awesome site, so many different videos and so many fun things to learn. I also started watching pod casts on knitting, crocheting and sewing! Wow! So very interesting learning new ideas and new techniques. I have not knit or crocheted with any kind of wool. My children are all so very busy so I would like to learn about wash and dryable wool.
Watching these pod casts so far:
