Love Letters or Why it's great to be a Nana...

Like all children, my granddaughter loves to receive mail.  I love mailing things to her too and recently was more on the book track since she learned to read this year.  But this week, I received a letter!
And an illustration:
I've never pretended to be a great quiltmaker and I'm certainly not a good clothes seamstress so I took an alternative route.  I went to the little cottage shop where crafters sell their homemade wares.  You should have seen the clerk's curious expression as I walked around the doll dress areas--holding this design against the frocks (finally I had to show it to him).  I found this one:
I'm off to write a little card and get it packed for mailing so that our little designer can receive it early next week!  Project Runway, look out!  Helena is already doing her sketches and "making it work"!
