Today is my anniversary. It was 30 years ago today that I walked down the aisle in this beautiful dress.
I crocheted this dress way back then. I used to crochet a lot and money was tight so it seemed like the perfect solution. I remember that the Knit Cro Sheen cost me $33.
It took me about 7 months to make it. I took it with me everywhere I went and worked on it. I spent a lot of time crocheting at Dave's baseball games.
It seems that crocheting is back in vogue. I thought it would be appropriate to display the dress in my shop; especially since it is 30 years old now. The dress really does look so good on this mannequin in the shop.
Until December, I had not crocheted since I started quilting. My daughter is very into scarves so I crocheted her one for Christmas. I could not find a crochet hook and actually had to go out and buy one. Now she wants me to teach her to crochet.
Here we are 30 years ago.
And here we are today. Yes, we have changed a little.
