  1. Wow, you've made a ton!!! Love all the dresses! I keep wanting to make more dresses for my girls but then see that it takes more and more fabric and give up. :)

  2. Hi: I came to your blog through the Oliver+S blog about your little dress. I read through your entries and just thought I would let you know that I grew up overseas, moving all the time, learning to say "good-bye" a lot, and so forth. I adapted as a child, maybe a little better than some of my siblings, but as an adult I cannot thank my parents enough for my heritage and upbringing overseas. All of us kids dealt differently with the challenges, but we all agree that ours was a rich childhood (and I don't mean materially :0)). As an adult I spent a lot of years travelling with my husband and three small kids, all under 4 at the time, one of them 2 months old. We were missionaries, not diplomats, but still travelling and adjusting, saying "hello" and "good-bye" more times than is normal. :0) Although they missed out on some "North American" things growing up, the Lord more than made up for it in other ways that will shape their entire lives. Anyway, just thought I'd encourage you a little; I can't say what your kids will eventually think of it all, but in my experience there is no substitute for not only letting kids "see" the world, but letting them experience other peoples. They will grow up seeing them as people, real people, and their heritage will be rich. Have a great day; I hope you get to enjoy more sewing. Your work is lovely!
