I think I am a bit like a butterfly..... flitting from one thing to another and actually not completing anything at the moment.
I have made many smocked dresses for my granddaughters and one of my favourites is one from the Country Bumpkin magazine called 'Gathering Roses'. I made it a couple of years ago for my youngest granddaughter, but when I spoke to her just a couple of days ago she informed me that it was now getting toooooooo short and she needed another. She has asked for it to be exactly the same as the one she already has........so I am in the process of making this dress for the third time.
|Lots more smocking to do.|
Smocking finished, now for the bullion roses that give this dress its name.
|Lots more bullions, but you can see where they will go|
There's still a bit more to do before this is finished, so you will see this again I am sure.
Look what's happening...
Yep, paper being removed...... looks promising
Not finished, still got to sandwich and quilt......
With all this going on....should I really be getting into something new. Of course the answer is NO, but my online friend has asked me to join in with this group here. I used to make bitty's each month, but had to give it a rest for a while and now only join in occasionally. This months themes were Christmas/winter and Aliens, now I am not into Aliens, but Christmas ....that's my thing. So this is mine so far
|Doves and olive leaves ready.|
Tomorrow I hope to get these 12 little blocks completed and in the post to America then I can sit back and wait for the other 11 ladies to send me their beauties.
What next is on the list??????
