Time to Celebrate!!! 8-23-11

This is Miss Rylee who is so excited about school...she was held back a grade because of the misfortune's of her parent's, but today we got her approved to jump ahead to 5th grade. It is a celebration just like when I made her this dress, she was so excited about her new dress so I guess I better get my crafty side turned on again and make her another celebration dress.
I have not wanted to do any craft's for sometime now...but I will do my best for her and her sister, that's one advantage about having a big sister, when I make her a dress she get's one too.
I used to cross stitch alot...here is one of my old post's. I have four cross stitch pattern's that I need to get at, the four season's which I have wanted for year's and my DH bought them for me and they have sat for month's. I really have suffered with deep depresion this last year, but blogging really help's me. It is all of your sweet comment's that keep me going some day's, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. I hope I can conquer this ugly depression, I am trying hard every day. I have lost 15 lbs. and do everything my doc tell's me to do. I am seeing progress but it is slow.
Cross stitch here I come!!!! I hope.
Have a wonderful day. Love from Debbie:)


  1. Have fun cross stitching! Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving such kind words. Have a blessed day!

  2. What adorable dresses! It has been so long since I sewed, I may have forgotten how! You definitely have the touch! Perfect!

    Congratulations to Miss Rylee for going into the 5th grade and you are such a pretty girl!

  3. Thankyou for your sweet comment on my blog. It is always fun for me to find other LDS bloggers. You called me amazing, but you are the amazing one. You have much on your plate and I can tell by looking through your blogs, that you do it all with a smile and kindness always. You are an example to me!

  4. Hi Debbie! congrats to miss Rylee for jumpin into the 5th grade...Great job! I cross stitch alot too, and have just started to stitch again after a long rest period. I saw that set of the four seasons and love it...problem is...I have so many kits to do that and I won't be able to get them done in this life time...LOL! I don't have a blog anymore but I'll still come to visit as I have been. Cheer up, I know all to much about depression...feel better friend. Hugs, Jennifer

  5. The dress is beautiful and you are a very sweet lady for making dresses for the girls. I used to sew a lot for my kids when they were small. Now I don't have a sewing machine. I also knit and that is sitting untouched too. Debbie, I promise you that I will get my knitting out if you get out your cross stitch.


  6. They are very blessed to have you sew something special for them. Very, very special indeed.

    Congrats on your 15 pound weight loss. . .that's a great accomplishment.

    I'll pray for your depression and very much appreciate you praying for our horrid Texas heat.

    Until next time,

  7. what beautiful dresses! You are so talented and I love the lace and the colour of the fabric you have chosen. That is one sweet smile.

    I hope you feel better and the depression leaves you...you have beautiful things to live for and to make too!

    have a wonderful day

  8. Dear Debbie
    This is my first time on your blog, and so I scrolled down and read back about a dozen of your past entries.

    Your kindness shines through your words.

    What beautiful dresses you have made for the two sisters! And it made me smile to know one of them was moved up to fifth grade!

    If they love school, they will surely learn all they can because of their right attitude.

    You have a good way of dealing with the depression - keeping busy will soon drive it away.

    Blessings! I truly enjoyed my time here.


  9. Oh boy you've got lots of cross stitching to do!
    Those dresses are beautiful.
    Depression can really turn your world upside down. Keep your head up and look for the best in each day.

  10. hey Debs,
    Love the sweet dress! Just getting ready to get hit by Hurricane Irene. Hope all is well
    Sparkly Hugs,
    Tobi and the Pixies
