Wondering what my next project will be and considering color combinations.  Here are some of Charlie’s favorite fabrics:

I love this red with the red and black too…

I have been creating my bonnets out of scraps of past projects and odds and ends.  A quilting stack is a great way to get color combinations.  I couldn’t help myself yesterday and purchased this one in pinks. I also added to my rick rack collection. It is all wrapped up like a present just for me! I am excited about the possibilities here:

You know these little bonnets on a baby girl are a gift.  They are a source of so many compliments- a gift to your heart. They instantly take the observer back to a time when girls were dressed like the precious treasures that they really are-which is a gift for your soul.  Mark Twain said, “The clothes make the man.” I believe that is true for men and women. More specifically I think that how a woman is dressed makes a statement about her to the world around her and influences her self image.  That is why I am making a special effort for my little girls to make their clothing say to those looking ‘this girl is a virtuous and innocent treasure of God.’  It is my inmost hope that by wearing modest and beautiful clothing that they will also feel their worth: A treasure of immeasurable value not only to the world around them-but most importantly to their Creator.

The second part of that quote from Mark Twain is “Naked people have little or no influence on society.” Unfortunately it seems that times have changed and all of the people of influence are at least half naked. It is important that Moms fight the soul damaging influence of the culture and clothe their children with dignity and love-A true gift that keeps on giving.
