Baby Clothes

The Bag Lady doesn't have a whole lot for you today. She spent most of yesterday hiding from the heat sewing and finally finished the gift she was working on for the Rancher's (now 2 month old!) grandchild.
She had a really hard time taking a decent picture of it. It looks weird in the photo. She hopes it won't look weird on the grandchild.....

She had a terrible time making up her mind about how to embellish the dress and finally asked the Rancher's opinion. The very first thing he said when he saw it was "Wow, that's cute!", which quite suprised her - he seldom pays attention to that kind of thing. The next surprise came when he picked the buttons and rickrack for the dress - his customary response is usually a shrug.

So here is the finished product:

She has a few other sewing projects underway right now, too (which is part of the reason this one took her so long....) and will probably spend more of the upcoming week huddled over her sewing machine in the cool bedroom to escape the forecasted hot weather!
