At last our roses have risen to the challenge, accepted the blessing of frequent showers,
and decided to Bloom ...
Hello, Yellow Rose - it's been a long time!
Naturally, I was attracted to this fabric the other day.
I think it will be a winner made up in McCalls 6278 with plain navy inserts...
and, if the dress is a success, it will win a prize trip to Canada,
and attendance at a very important event:
The Christening of the Little Bebe, our latest grandson...
He has grown a bit now, but here's a reminder of him as a newborn.
Pondering on a special gift for him, I thought I'd show something I have preserved all my life, and which was a curious gift at my own Christening as a newborn:
A white china beaker, handpainted by the giver with my name and,
wait for it ....
A coq, a rooster, the French Emblem, and his meek little hen.
This one's for you, Silver Bunny!!
No wonder I have loved French culture all my life!
Only a few hours until the Oscars...
Enjoy yourselves, Aussie contenders Hugh Jackman and Jackie Weaver -
I'm cheering for you!
Have a fun week ..
