6 months later........
October, November, December, January, February and now, here we are at March! Nearly time to be thinking ahead to the summer months. We have a new grandbaby due in August, that's always fun. For now, tho, I will take a look back at last summer and my little ladies who love to dress up-
I am a wife, a mother and a grandmother. My journey into the enchanting world of classic children's clothing began when my first child, a son, was born in 1982. We welcomed a daughter and another son in the following 6 years. They were my inspiration learn English Smocking and to utilize the embroidery my grandmother had taught me when I was 6 years old. Through the years I have taught countless women Embroidery and English Smocking techniques. In addition I design and create custom garments which I sell to individual clients and in my Etsy shop. I am deeply inspired by old world techniques and materials. My main source of inspiration is the children who wear my designs.
