Eventually I had a daisy ring that was the exact same design only smaller, though I doubt that I wore it much. They matched my yellow raincoat and my daisy covered pillbox hat. Of course I wore white gloves with the hat...
My first home-made dress was a sky-blue shift with daisies all over it. I was 11 and Mom was teaching me to sew. She said that she'd show me how to put the zipper in after she got groceries, but when she got back I had done it and done it right. I made all my clothes for about 20 years.
When did it get to be so cheap to buy clothes and so expensive to sew? When all the sewing went overseas! Don't get me started on that--It's just criminal how those garment workers are treated!

Gotta run. A busy weekend is coming up and I'm spending tooo much time on my computer!
Have a great weekend, Y'all!
