It's not a very good picture of a very, very cute dress that I made this weekend for Aberdeen, my 2-year-old granddaughter. I'll be sending it to her in the mail tomorrow. I have two other pieces of fabric designated to become summer dresses for her, and I think it wise to check the size before proceeding.
A group of many of the women in my family gathered today. Another cousin, sister of the fabric donor, is moving South, and I hosted a brunch in her honor. Eight of us had a lovely time, laughing, eating, carrying on. We had such a good time; we really should do this kind of thing more often for no good reason!
The cousin who is moving has a little granddaughter of her own, just a couple of months older than Aberdeen. And there's still a yard or so of that Liberty fabric left. I feel another little dress coming on as soon as the size is confirmed. I like the idea of these two little cousins, who prolly will never meet, having the same dress that one family member provided the fabric for and another family member made.
I looked at one of those cousin relationship charts to see if I could figure out what Aberdeen and Sophie are to each other. It was very complicated but it appears that they are third cousins, four times removed!
