I stole these pic's off of Linda's blog, if I knew how to link I would send you there..........she got them off of Judy L.
Linda sent them to Judy to take to West Tx after the fertilizer blast that has affected that area. I love string blocks and I love making them but it sure was nice having Linda quilt them and mail them off! Thanks Linda for the quilting and binding, Kristin and Sara for the sewing, and the Orchard Quilters for the sewing and fabric. I am truly grateful for all the supportive quilters in this world who make a difference in the lives of so many by their selfless acts of kindness.http://quiltinlibrarylady.blogspot.com/ oh I think I got the link thing going, check out Linda's blog.

Sara's dress was a hand me down from Kristin, when she was asked to prom I told her she could go but I wouldn't buy a dress. She could pick from the 4 or 5 we have in the house. I paid $15.00 for it 5 years ago when Kristin wore it for graduation. Sara and Kristin took it out to my studio and remade it with a little help from Mrs. Potter(dentist wife in O'Neill whose estate sale I bought 5 totes of fabric) Kristin added two skirts, sash and trim. I paid $4 a tote so way less than a dollar for added fabric.
Shoes were $25 on clearance at Shoe Carnival
Vintage clutch came from my stash
Jewelry also came from my stash, the vintage butterfly pin on the back of the dress and matching earrings she wore in her hair might be family heirlooms? Or I might have bought them at a garage sale.....now they are Sara heirlooms. The pearl strand is another stash find. The pearl earring are hers from Grandma Flicsha.
I made 4 garters for less than $3 so Sara's two cost $1.25 each
Flowers were $22.98 for all (kids and dates) because Grandma Flicsha is premo florist!
Brad's tux jacket was from the thrift store costing $2
Tie and vest ordered off the net for $24.95 plus shipping
Shirt and pants bought at Dillards outlet each $14.99 minus 70%
Shoes borrowed from cousin
alterations by Kristin
I did have to pay $40 for post prom (they gave $20 to the kid at the end of the night)
Kevin and I took Sara to Norfolk (server dates were not included in bus ride or dinner at prom) and we had a very nice dinner at Village Inn for around $30 for the three of us. So add $20 in gas because we took the pickup. I let Brad drive my car to Clearwater to pick up Chelsea and return her in the morning so maybe $3 in gas.
Oh and I almost forgot the pictures we don't have yet...$45
I do have to thank Anna for coming up to do Sara's hair, it was alot of work to make that mane all curls and for saving Brad's haircut......so don't let me have clippers before important events!
So for around a little over $200 I sent two kids to prom.
