Almost Finished

Finished Cookie Monster's sash for her Communion dress tonight.  I couldn't find a nice 3 inch wide ribbon, so i "made" one out of broadcloth.  Sliced a piece off 6.5 inches wide x 55 inches long, embroidered the lilies, and stitched it up. 

We can't find the usual white shoes sans heels unless purchased from a "european style" retailer, however we can't see the point in purchasing shoes so expensive that what you would spend for them would feed a needy family for a month!(I think that's a more important lesson to pass on, don't you?)  So Cookie Monster has decided she'll wear dress shoes she already owns. 

Grandma is finished with the dress and we found a headcovering, so i think we're set. 

Now to finish memorizing the Act of Contrition! :)

  1. Beautiful work!

    I had to laugh at the memorizing the Act of Contrition part. I still can't ever seem to get past the "at having offended Thee" part without then confusing it with the Confiteor part of mass, and following up with, "and I ask Blessed Mary ever virgin, all the angels and saints, and you my brothers and sisters..."

    I guess I need to go to confession more often! But then again, I think I forgot it in the first place because no one has asked to hear me say it since I was at my Catholic elementary school. Priests don't seem to check that stuff up when they get an adult in the confessional booth, lol.


Thanks for taking the time to read my silly lil musings. Hope you have a wonderful day!
