Molly's Blessing Dress

It took just over four balls of thread, and six long months. I started when I was about 6 months pregnant, and finished it an hour before the blessing. I had all the crocheting done the night before, but I finished sewing the bows on at 11:40. Church started at 12:30, so it was just by the skin of my teeth! This is the start of the fourth ball. Not even close to done.

A beautiful baby in her first white dress.
I love this little face!

I thought the finish work on the last row was a little unspectacular, especially since that one row took FOUR hours to complete. Most of the rows took about an hour on average. I haven't counted the rows on the dress, but I'm sure it's more than 100.

I didn't make these, but I was so excited to find crocheted booties!! I love them.

The blessing was wonderful. Molly was blessed by her daddy, and it was beautiful! We had a great day with our family and friends in honor of this special and important occasion. We love our Molly Grace!!
