I am a very lucky niece because unlike most uncles that buy their nieces a dress , I have a special uncle who makes them for me. The first dress my sister's and I got from our Uncle Stephen was when we were little and they were lovely smocked dresses ( mine was a pretty blue one). My uncle Stephen then went on and made my leavers dress in high school. When it came time for DH and myself to tie the knot my Uncle Stephen had gone through a very bad patch with his health, that left use all very worried. So I decided to start looking for a already made dress. I found one and was about to put it away when a week after I discovered I was pregnant with John ( oh joy I was scared I tell you) , so although my Uncle Steven was still recovering, he offered to once again make me a dress this time my wedding dress......

This is the lovely dress made for me and can you tell I was 6 months pregnant in this photo. Now my Uncle Stephen has started up his own blog so if you would like to go over and say "Hello" I am sure he would love to hear from other quilters. He is truly a amazing and talented person and I am so pleased he is part of our family.
I come from a very cleaver family as my Grandad who is about to celebrate his 80th birthday in a few weeks made our wedding cake. The whole family is getting together for grandads 80th so lots of laughter and fun can't wait. Happy sewing
Big Hugs Bec
