I have been MIA this week, getting ready for Christmas. A while back I had told you that my mom was going to give me her left over material that was used for her bridesmaids dresses and I was so excited. Her colors were rust and cream and I knew the taffeta fabric would be beautiful. I wanted to make something special for my sisters and all the granddaughters so I made these brooches and my daughter came up with this amazing poem to go along with them. What makes them more special is that this year would have been my parents 50th anniversary and yesterday two years ago is the anniversary of my fathers death so I know the girls will cherish these.
