A wife's charm delights her husband, and her skill puts fat on his bones. Like the sun rising in the heights of the Lord so is the beauty of a good wife in her well-ordered home. Like the shining lamp on the holy lamp stand, so is a beautiful face on a stately figure - Sirach 26:13

Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable - if anything is excellent or praiseworthy - think about such things. - Php 4:8

The last day that my baby girl was 9

Here is my pianist practicing her piano. She's finished all her school work and is playing one of her favourite pieces.
Today is the last day that she's in single digits. Tomorrow she turns 10. How the time has flown!

Baby Girl's Bridesmaid Dress

Here is my baby girl wearing Butterick pattern 4385. This neckline looks a little low because I had read reviews that the band around the top gaped, so I decided to omit it. In retrospect, perhaps I should then have made the bodice higher. Fortunately, at the wedding a woman gave her a strand of fresh water pearls to wear and it wasn't as obvious. It also made her feel very special. When I have pictures of her at the wedding, I will post them. I made this out of beautiful dupion white silk that was a delight to work with.
