Millions of spiritual creatures walk the earth Unseen,
both when we wake and when we sleep.
~John Milton, Paradise Lost
I found this picture of Mae in Issa's angel dress. This was the Christmas dress that made me hang up my smocking need for a good while. I did 3 of these angel dresses, and the knot on my right thumb joint has never been the same! Issa, Mae and Katelyn all looked very sweet in them though, and I might rethink my decision. This bishop dress is made from a very tiny micro check, with a placket in the back and one pearl button. The smocking plate is an old one from Molly Jane Taylor, and it is still one of my favorites. I smocked it for Mandy about 30 years ago and did blue angels on white batiste.
I love that my sweet girls all had angels on their shoulders!
