In third grade, I learned the following saying, "If a task is once begun, never leave it tell it's done. Be the labor great or small, do it well or not at all."
Let me start by showing you a photo of the blessing dress I made for our first granddaughter . A very old fashion, traditional christening dress. I added tatting onto the dress which was made my her great, great grandmother, Ruby Cox. (I cut off one side of a hanky she tatted around for the trim). The pattern is one that I've had for at least 32 years. I made the first blessing dress when I was pregnant with Rob because back then we didn't know if I was having a boy or girl and I wanted to be prepared. Then when I had Andrea and Brittany, I still wasn't prepared since we thought the twins would be a boy and a girl so I had to hurry and made one more blessing dress...sadly, I never finished the dress that Brittany wore (it still needs buttonholes and buttons). I was simply too busy taking care of babies and trying to get some sleep. As soon as I finish the complicated baby quilt I'm making for this granddaughter, I decided I'd finish Brittany's blessing dress. . . I'll give it to Brittany once I'm finally done with it. Seems to me, I forgot that saying when it comes to this little white dress. It's about time that I finish what I started even if it was 30 years later. RIGHT?
