This morning our family will gather at the church to baptise Lady M.  To the right is a picture of Lady L when she was baptised six years ago on the exact same date. The gown is our family Christening gown made by my mother, who is holding Lady L in the picture. All three of my children wore this dress, my niece and nephew, and four of our five grandchildren. On the slip of the dress, each of their names is embroidered with their birthday and baptism day. 

I love the beauty and story that is being built in this tradition. The joy of the history of the gown being passed to the third generation to wear it is amazing.

This past week I stitched Lady M name on the slip and smiled deeply wondering if God will bless us with another grandchild for the future. 

  I will finish out this blog with images from the prior baptisms that I can find.  

Blessings to you.  Laurie

 

The Dress on Lady L six years ago. Mom designed it with a slip underneath and a beautiful long coat. The dress and the coat are hand stitched with pearls and beads.  It is a masterpiece in itself.
