Well as you can see I did not accomplish my other dress :(...I was very upset..but alas I have a bunch of pictures I downloaded of a 1959 jacket and skirt...do you like? I made it from pattern #8939 Butterick circa, I would say 1957-59. I found it online as well as the material. I put a strip of ribbon on the bottom of the skirt and a butterfly broach on the jacket.
Like I said on my last posting I just couldn't finish the jacket so I found this laying around halfway done and figured I could make it work. I finished it Saturday night and put it on and found out I had to loose 5 lbs in 1 night. Well I didn't, but I sucked it in very well, and I am truly happy, My husband hates the picture of him but if I don't get one I never will. Give me feedback and let me know how you like exchanging ideas, hurts from one another, crafts and prayers. I think I am doing a pretty good job reaching all of you. Please continue to post!
One more thing. Dr. Stanley, at church on Sunday, said if we don't believe in the resurrection then we cannot believe in Him or His death. The disciples believed everything Jesus told them but when He died, He had to prove that He was alive. We need to go out to our neighbors and friends and tell them "Jesus is alive"! I believe I am here for this crazy little blog and reaching so many woman, just like Rachel is, all over the country, so we can get together, pray, for one another, and sharing the good news. I have one lady from South Africa, I am thrilled! I just want to leave with one prayer for all of us...Lord, Let us learn to depend on you and you alone for everything in our lives. Even when we feel that we are at the end, whether its because of divorce or other hardships..YOU are in control, YOU are soverign, WE are your Brides. Help us remember how the disciples believed yet when you rose they forgot everything you told them. Don't let us forget...ever. WE are children of the almighty, let us remember that Whatever is true, whatever is noble...let us dwell on these things only...Lets just come to "Daddy" and let Him take over!
God Bless you all, see you later. Hope you like the pictures....:)
