Rilla @ 2 Months

We marked her 2 month birthday capturing *Little Miss* in several outfits and more than several moods.
I'll start with these.

Spring Dresses

I haven't been inspired to sew clothes for a very long time. {Altering clothing doesn't count nor is it inspiring - just necessary.} With my time so freed up since closing Poet's {and more Grand-Daughters to sew for} I am having fun with some new spring dresses for them. I found some lovely inspiration on the Internet and came up with a great, easy pattern to work from. 
 Much of the pleasure and time ,and actual creativity for me, is spent at the fabric store. Choosing... then changing my mind... then changing it back. =)  Does anyone else do this? There are so many wonderful new fabric choices these days! I'm pleased with the results {unlike so many of my  sewing projects over the years}. Unfortunately my machine has some interesting quirks after 45 years of faithful service but I can't bear the thought of getting a new one. No guaranty a new machine wouldn't come with its own quirks!
 { Why does it occur to me that the same could be said of a long marriage but that's totally off topic!}
Back to the dresses. So here they are
 blowing in the *Spring* breeze.

*Taking Poppy to the Mailbox*

The simplest joys in life are free 
{though often under-appreciated}.

The Mystery


"Sweet Baby of mine You embraced my heart and Stole my breath away."


This is the mystery that every mother feels
{and every grandmother feels again}.

How Rilla and her Grandmother feel after today's photo-shoot!

Through several feedings, naps {her's not mine} and change of outfits we carried on. Me loving every minute.
{Why is it I have to take over 300 pictures though! to get a hand full of good ones ?}
