My Husband "Subvet" says that when our first son "Sonshine" was born the sun rose on our world, when our second son "Gator" was born the sun laughed and when our daughter "Sugars" was born all the flowers bloomed. That says it all.

Sugars' Apron--Updated with new pics!

You may have seen on the Todo List that the apron which was to go with Sugars' Easter dress is finally finished!

She hasn't worn them together yet...I think I'll put them on her for school pictures... :-)


But I thought you might like to see the apron.


Almost a year ago now I think a friend of Stephanie's gave her the ruffle off of a bed skirt that the friend had inherited. Stephanie mentioned that she couldn't think of anything to do with all that eyelet lace. Well, anyone who's known me for about a week will find out that I'm a HUGE SUCKER for eyelet lace! Stephanie was sweet enough to mail me a portion of that bed skirt.

This apron as well as the bottom ruffle on her dress are made from that very bedskirt!!







Now, that's MY kind of recycling!!!

That was so very clever of you! I'm so glad you could use it. And it looks absolutely adorable with that dress.

Of course, the model is even more adorable.....

Eyelet lace is my favorite, also, and what a great use of that material! Anything that could put a smile like that on the face of child is worth its weight in gold.
