The Significance of the Word

I always like to make my Christmas gifts to my Granddaughter Lucy and my Great Niece Annie.  So, this year I started out with Annie's, because I needed to mail it and Lucy's came next.  I was going to post when the present arrived.  But life being what it is and Christmas mail always hazardous, Annie's present didn't arrive until yesterday.  I was truly a nervous wreck.  But when I think about it, I must make better choices about what I listen to when I sew.  
With Annie's robe. I listened to Rebel Buddha by Dzogchen Ponlop.  And when I think about it then
it makes a lot of sense that life has it own time stream and it would get there when it was to get there.  When I made Lucy's robe, I listened to Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens.   And of course, it was ready and wrapped for Christmas.
Annie's robe is this wonderful Spandex Satin.  A friend gave me about 7 yards of it.  It is only 40 inches wide but the color captures the whole world.  The robe will hit the bottom of her calf.  She won't trip but will still have the long robe style.
Lucy's is a lovely shade of Periwinkle Lavender.  I wanted to try applique and since Lucy is such a lovely bud of a girl, that is the theme of the robe.

Actually, it wouldn't be Christmas if I didn't make something for my loved ones and these two girls are very dear!!
