I'm so grateful for grandmothers who patiently took time to teach us the art of making clothing. If you've ever tried to coordinate a family with our range of sizes, you'll know that's its nearly impossible to find formal outfits [in decent price range] without spending quite a bit of time behind the machine! So to any of you who are patiently teaching a life-skill to a child -- be encouraged -- it could greatly bless their life someday! [And many thanks to our patient grandmas!!]
And once again, our dear friend, Anna, came to our rescue with her sewing skills! Thanks, Anna -- and her sister, Esther, too!
The stack of dresses needing hems and zippers are gradually shrinking as the 'done' rack grows!
So teach us to number our days, That we may gain a heart of wisdom. And let the beauty of the LORD our God be upon us, And establish the work of our hands for us; Yes, establish the work of our hands.
