My mother used to make my school dresses when I was a little girl, so if you look at school pictures of me through about 3rd grade, I am wearing a dress that she lovingly crafted with her sewing machine and two hands. I remember her saying she was so excited when she found out she was having a girl because she would be able to make me dresses and toys and boy did she ever do a lot of that.
