Here's my newest pattern: Lollipop! She was designed in honor of Shirley Temple. We have a fondness for Shirley Temple. She was such an adorable and talented little girl, and grew up to be a gracious, beautiful, compassionate woman. The world lost a treasure when she passed recently. I was going to give her blond hair like Shirley Temple has, but she just looked better with her standard Raggedy Ann red hair!
This wasn't my first experience with sewing a Shirley Temple dress. When our daughter Emily was a junior in high school, she had to do a famous person report and she chose Shirley Temple. Here's a photo of Emily in her outfit!
I also just finished a pattern of Plain Jane. These were my sixth and seventh new patterns of the year. I'm on a roll!
Today was a sad day at our house! Our sweet Ella Jean was very ill and we had to let her go. She was my daughter's cat; and she's had her for 10 years since she was just nine years old. She happens to be home from college for Spring Break, so she was here with Ella when we had to take her in for her last vet appointment. It was sudden, totally unexpected, and broke our hearts! Rest in peace, Sweet Ella Jean! :( If you have a cat or a dog, go hug them! They just aren't here with us nearly long enough!
Primitive blessings to you!
