Birthday girl...

My first baby was born eleven years ago this day.  I am proud of her.  She is vibrant, loving, passionate, sensitive and beautiful.

Her big present this year was a sewing machine!  She is ultra keen to learn how to sew, and I think it's a great skill for girls and boys to learn.  She is pictured here sporting her new birthday dress, and a little something I bought from a reputable seller on etsy!

Happy Birthday Emma.

  3. Happy birthday darling Emma!

    Believe it or not, I am still using the same sewing machine that my step-mother bought for me when I was about her age. =) I'm sure hers will be well loved for years to come.

  4. Windhover, thank you! Emma is so delighted with the bag you made I cannot begin to tell you! I think she has ambitions to become an etsy seller some day...

    Sarah, you're a lovely! Thank you for the Birthday wishes, Joel will be eleven before you know it... That's why I believe every day is so precious...

    And Allison, Hello! I have read your blog for some months now, and I enjoy your posts very much. I am so happy to welcome you as a comment maker on this little blog!
