In the past week I have had two friends give birth to baby girls. It has been very exciting. Of course, neither of them live near here so I haven't seen either baby, but can't wait to do so. As i am pretty sure she doesn't read my blog I am going to show you what I am sending off to one of them. (The other baby was given a huge basket full of goodies from a group of us a month ago).
So, this is what will be on it's way to Ararat shortly:
The second dress is a smocked bishop, an original pattern. I wanted to have a play with lace coming down through the smocking. If I were to do it again I would flattern out the lace at the neck edge more. It is a learning process, I think there is always something new to be learnt, no matter how long you have done something.
No more pretty sewing on the radar for me at the moment; I have school musical costumes to be hemmed today and taken back tomorrow. And then more during the week. The Production starts on Friday so by the weekend I can get onto my christening gown again. I am enjoying doing it and can't wait for it to be finished so I can see how it looks.
