I love Mondays

Welcome, My dear friends...

Yes, I really do love Mondays!

Mondays are special to me because they are the beginning of a brand new week. Fresh laundry, fresh ideas, a list of fun sewing many things that I am yearning to get started after a busy weekend.

My darling granddaughter, Lilly Kate

I had the joy of making this for Lilly. I wanted her to have her very own Dorothy costume from the "Wizard of Oz".  Having been the Mother of two sons...It was a dream come true to be able to sew this for her.

And, the final touch...A big fluffy bow!
Made with Love by Grammy
I don't get to see my grandbabies very often, but they are always in my heart.

Thank you for popping in for a visit! I'm so happy you came...Thank you for your many thoughtful comments. They mean so much!

Oh, Lily Kate looks so pretty!! You did a great job making that Dorothy dress, dear Carolynn. But I have to disagree with you... I don't like Mondays at all. :D

Adorable dress for Lilly and adorable girl. I only have a boy too and I so hope when he has a baby it is a girl...Yep, I'll be sewing up a storm!


Jeanne said...

I love the Dorothy dress! It is so beautifully made, she looks just like Dorothy! What a lucky girl :-) I have a blog post last December with the real one that is on display at Planet Hollywood in Downtown Disney. It was a thrill to see it as I always loved the movie. I read all the Oz books as a kid.

Marianne said...

Carolynn, Lovely dress! Oh, I think grandmas should get to see their grandchildren every week! Hope you see yours soon.


Sally Annie Magundy said...

Oh Carolyn, you're granddaughter is such a cutie! What a lucky girl she is to have a super crafty grandma, that is the most darling dress. Does she sing "we're off to see the wizard"?

Happy Rednesday!

Hi, Carolynn,
Thanks for your sweet comments about my blog. I have been perusing yours, and I do see we love the same things, especially red. I had two sons and so I was excited too, to get two granddaughters. :) (I always wanted them to dress as Dorothy. Your Dorothy outfit is really cute.

Hi Miz Caroline!
What a cute creation, she is a darling. I like most Mondays too, it's like getting back to normal after goofing off or having company for two days. Mostly I like early mornings.
I have had some company, more than I am used to cleaning sister is moving here to help with Mom, who is holding ok and being sweet.
Blessings in your day, still praying for Tim and his family.
