You've seen these dresses , but not on these BEAUTIES!

Here's Lil'B in her Christmas version of this dress.       
                                                                                      
       Now, Lil'E in her Christmas version.
 Here are the two of them in their Valentine version.  Note that the green ribbon is gone from Lil'B's dress, and the collar is reversed on Lil'E's.
 This is an extra picture that I couldn't resist showing you.
And, yet, another.


 Another sneak peek at my Valentine's project.  I guess it's pretty obvious from this photo what I've made.  There's one for each of the three son-in-laws, daughters, grands (all 7) and one for one of my cousins.  I only purchased one of these fabrics for this project.  The other fabrics were already in my stash.  Some were just remnants.
Now, it's on to take apart the front and back of a sweater that I have started for my oldest granddaughter.  After I went to bed last night, I decided that I don't like it so far.  So........... I'm starting over.
I also have a couple of baby slings to make, sweaters for the second oldest grand, a special project for a photographer friend of mine (pictures later), and a couple of dresses for other people's grands.  Then, it will be time to start Easter garments for my grands.  I will be learning some new skills as I work on some of these projects.
