Mother has evidently been working her fingers to the bone, sewing up precious little ensembles for her three grandsons. Twice in the last week I received a present package bearing her return address and both times I squealed with delight! I just want to go and hug her neck!!
She thoughtfully decks out her creations with all the little extras you don’t always find in the store – covered buttons, appliques, pockets and tabs. Yes, please! And it goes without saying that Sister received a matching outfit for the littlest Bird in our crew.
This last one is one of my all time faves. Get this…these were outfits I purchased for the littles from Ragsland last year. John still fits into his shirt and shorts but, in it’s original form, Cookie’s was a bubble that was all too small. So I asked Mother to cut the name off of the bubble and sew it onto a white shortall. And when she delivered it with the contrasting orange stitching and covered buttons from more of the bubble fabric my jaw hit the floor. It’s just too much! And now I got two years of wear out of the outfits!
Thanks, Mother! Once again you’ve outdone yourself.
