"The destiny of nations lies far more in the hands of women, the mothers, than in the possessors of power, or those of innovators who for the most part do not understand themselves. We must cultivate women, who are the educators of the human race, else the new generation cannot accomplish its task."

Introducing "Charlotte"







Abby and I are both in love with Miss "Charlotte"! A while back I started thinking about wanting to make another special occasion dress to add to my collection. I wanted something that could work for the holidays as well as for weddings, parties or other special events and also that was a bit more grown up. That's how "Charlotte" came to be. When Abby saw the finished dress on the dress form her mouth fell open and she said... "Mom, you've done it again!" and she said when can we go take photos??? Now, if you like this one, you are going to love, and I do mean LOVE the holiday version of "Charlotte". I was hoping to take Abby out for a photo shoot this weekend but sadly, Mother Nature has something else planned for us for the next few days while we batten down the hatches for the next hurricane. Yuck! I had so many things I wanted to do this weekend and now we will all be stuck inside waiting for this storm to pass. So, hopefully Abby and I will be able to take photos of her in the Christmas version later in the week. I have a ton of work done on this new pattern so finger's crossed I will be able to complete it within the next few weeks so that I can get it into the shop with still plenty of time for you to make it up for the holidays!
