Just when you think you are going to go insane

Yesterday as I was unpicking the bodice the renaissance dress I was making for the 2nd time I jut threw it on the ground and walked away in total frustration.
I walked to the deck doors and was caught off guard by the beauty outside.
all the trees were covered in snow the sky was indigo and the moon was shining in the morning sky.

As I stood there admiring the beauty that God created for me a sent up a silent prayer thanking him for my life my family and my talents.
I felt ready to finish the darn dress.
I was almost finished and ready to figure out how the heck I was going to put all the eyelets down the back ,when my friend called I told her what I was doing and she asked me if I needed me to bring over her eyelet setter.
I told her Heavenly Father new I needed her to call just at that moment.
I really don't know how I would have finished the dress with out recking it if i didn't have the eyelet setter.
I finally finished the dress mid afternoon and called the girl to get her dress.
At this point I really hated the dress. I could see every flaw and mistake I was on the verge of tears when she came over.
I held of the dress and her eyes melted all my fears away she loved it.
She looked like a kid on Christmas morning.
She tried the dress on and I was just amazed at how beautiful it was.
Her mother kept Ewing and awing and said I know my daughter did not give you all her measurements how in the world did you get it hemed right and the sleaves the right length.
I just winked and said I had the Lord guiding me.
She giggled and said you must have because my daughter is not an ordinary size.
The girl I made the dress for is 6foot tall huge boobs and long arms.
I really did feel the guidance of the Lord on my side.
I can hardly wait to see it on her tomorrow when I watch the performance of the Madrigal that my daughter and her are in.
I will take pix of the dress and show you then.
Let me just say I will never make a dress with that much yardage again.
Well maybe never.

Really cant wait to see the pictures! I remember when I was doing weddings. Every dress for every wedding I swore it was the last time! Lol. Especially when I was making dresses for bridesmaids that were to fly in right before the wedding. They always said they wer a size six. In reality they were ALWAYS a size 10.I was very good at making big Ü.They just never knew it.
