Show and Tell Friday!

Kelli has a great idea! It's called Show and Tell Friday, and I've decided to join in on the fun. :) I hope you will, too!
This beautiful skirt and matching headband was made for me by my dear mother. I have so often taken for granted the beautiful clothes she lovingly makes for me. Each article of clothing will be treasured forever. She is now teaching me how to sew(I've started learning kinda late) and this time spent together is so dear to me and creates memories I will have with me my whole life! offers beautiful modest swimsuits for $80. This is kinda pricey, and since they offer patterns as well, my dear, thrifty mother decided to undergo the task of attempting to make a swimsuit for me and one for herself as well. She did a wonderful job, and thanks to her, I was able to go to the beach this past weekend, and was able to honor God while I was there.
What a blessing my dear mother is!


  1. Oh that is so neat! I'm gonna try to do it too!! I love your swimsuit!!

  2. Very pretty--you must have a wonderful mom. Praise the Lord for his good gifts, eh?

  3. What beautiful garments, Rebekah! Your mother is a blessing and I'm sure you are to her! :0) Have a wonderful weekend!

  4. That is a gorgeous skirt...I have always wanted to make that swimsuit. :)

  5. How wonderful and lovely they are and how truly blessed you are!

  6. Your skirt looks gorgeous! I have always learned how to sew. My mother hasn't sewn since I was a baby....would love to learn. I would love to make gorgeous skirts like that. Your mother is truly a blessing and you will benefit greatly from her teachings and her gifts.

    Thank you! :) I think you should-my mom said that it was actually very easy. Patterns are available through for $15.97.

    Penless thoughts,
    Yes, I am very blessed! More than I deserve! Thank you so much for visiting, and I hope you return often!

    Becky K,
    How great it is to see you on my blog again! :) Thank you so much! I really enjoy wearing it, as it is so flowy and fun to be in! Yes, she is a trememdous blessing, and I am so blessed to be able to learn all that she has to teach me.

    I'm on my way! :)

    Thank you so much! You are so kind!!

  8. Just for didn't start sewing late. I am seventeen, and I just started. However, better late than never!

  9. Thanks for the encouragement, Ella!! :) So often I hear of really young girls who know hwo to knit, sew, crochet, etc. etc. and it makes me feel really behind. I guess I should stop comparing myself to others. :)

  10. Beautiful clothes made by your mother! My mom use to make all my clothes while I was growing up until her sight got too poor for sewing...I still have one little red velvet dress she had made me for Christmas when I was 3 years old:-)

  11. Pea,

    Thank you so much! Welcome to my blog! Thanks for stopping by! Handmade clothes become items that are so dear!!

  12. You are indeed blessed! The outfit and swimsuit are lovely. It's a blessing to see a young lady unashamedly wearing definitely modest attire for swimming. It's never too late to learn to sew!

    Thank you so much for your sweet comment!! I really enjoyed reading it! That was so kind of you!

    Have a blessed weekend,

  14. Hi Rebekah - I love your skirt. So nice and feminine. And, don't worry - I know many ladies who started sewing later in life. I'm 22 and only know some basic hand-stitches myself so far, but hoping to learn more.

  15. Hi, Anna! Thanks so much. :)

    Thanks for the encouragement! I'm really starting to feel better about not knowing that much in that area. :)

    Many blessings,

  16. What beautiful, modest outfits, Rebekah! You are a lovely young lady! I'm so glad you joined in for show and tell!

  17. Kelli,

    Many blessings to you and yours,
