New Projects

I have some friends who have had or are expecting babies real soon. My friend Mauri had a baby girl and so I made this yellow dress for her baby. The dress takes me about 40 hours to crochet and embellish. The booties take about 5 hours. This dress and booties are made from Italian crochet thread. It is very soft and light weight and comes in beautiful colors.

My other friend, Debbie, is expecting a baby girl in April. They are so excited about this surprise addition to their family because they have a daughter that is twelve!! I for some reason feel close to Debbie and her family so I made a blessing gown for their little one. The gown is made with cotton crochet thread and took we about 80 hours to crochet and embellish. The booties took five hours. Aren't they adorable?

WOW! I can't believe how many blogs you have written since I was online last. Yes, I have to say, I don't get online much.

You are extremely talented, as I have known for years, and these beautiful gowns prove it! Are you sure they took the time you said? I'm thinking much longer! Great work Pam.

Can I just say a few more things? I wish we could have been there for Carnivale. Randy has applied to the exact place you are! I really hope he gets it. We would be there at least 6 months with you IF he gets it! I appreciated your background of Carnivale. Very interesting. I'm also mentioning that I put a response on your 3 comment thing. Can't remember what is was called, but it's a contest I think.

AND! Tell Aimee that the music to Wicked is WICKED! I love it! It's coming to Salt Lake and I won't be able to see it!!! I'm very sad. I'll have to see it in San Diego or something maybe. AND she cut her hair! Cute! Boy aren't the kids just growing up?

Ok, talk later. Thanks for sharing your wonderful talents with us!

Looks familiar!! I will always treasure mine. Can you believe that she will be a year old next week? Where did the time go? She'll never be that little again. Maybe her little girl can wear it some day, wouldn't that be fun?
