For Jessica

One of the things I’ve been trying to do is help Jessica get ready to go to the hospital when Baby MAC decides to make his entrance. A couple of weeks ago we were looking high and low for an appropriate nightgown for the hospital.  There were specific criteria to be for it to be deemed appropriate. It had to be comfortable, easy for nursing and visitor friendly. Oh and not ugly.  We came to the conclusion that there was nothing that fit our standards. No thing.  Nada.  Then I had a moment. Ya’ll know the one. The one where I am brilliant. I said, “Jess, I know how to sew, it’s something I do. What if I made you a gown?” She told me I was brilliant and said yes please.  Actually I think she rolled her eyes and said took you long enough.  Anyway, I would of showed you this last week but I decided to go and get sick and make my very pregnant daughter wait on me hand and foot for two whole days.  I’m better but only because I got tired of all of the attention.


More later!

No, no, no, Jess, that baby belly is beautiful! And of course I love the gown, it's super cute and it looks adorable on you. Mission accomplished, Corinnea. :)

Oh that's scrumptious! What kind of fabric is it?

This is gorgeous Corinnea. Of course I would want to wear it out in public as a dress. Mind, is now the time to confess when I saw those reversible aprons you made; I kinda wondered if it would be acceptable to make them and wear them out as a sort of over-dress - at times when I didn't actually need to be wearing an apron...Hmmm I don't know why the English are considered eccentric??

Sheesh! I would have been wondering what took you so long too! I mean, if you can't find what you want, then make it! Right?! ;-)

Won't be long now.....
