peewee Kiwis

Rejoice with your family in the beautiful land of life! ~Albert Einstein

Bibi's girls arrived safely in Aukland and after a good night's sleep were ready to explore.  While Bibi is curled up in her fleece jacket and thick socks, the girls have discarded the leggings that went with these little dresses and walked in the surf in 80 degrees.  
 Nana got these  little knit dresses for them before they left and Mandy wanted to personalize them.  This was a different font, Twirly, and I modified it a little bit.  The original version is enclosed in brackets and was just a little too much for the stripes.   Each letter is then outlined in a little lacy stitch that I could have deleted also, but you can't really see it on the white stripe. I used a layer of polymesh, a layer of tearaway beneath the hoop, and solvy on top.  Nary a pucker!

I measured my little ones carefully before they left, no fittings for dresses for a year or so!  I love this family of adventurers!


  1. Can you even believe they are there?! What an exciting adventure. I know you will miss them, but what a great excuse to travel :)

  2. No, Mary, I cannot believe it. But I do think I should not be the only one to visit. I smile just thinking of the adventures you and Mandy could have in Aukland!
