Him is cute!



Smocking done on baby gift. I think he is cute. Obviously the "hem" of his blue jacket has come undone on the left since it lists a bit lower than the right. But as usual I am okay with it. That seems to be my mantra. Need to construct it now. Hopefully tomorrow it will be done.

The christening gown fabric arrived today. 4 weeks and 2 days until it needs to be finished.

This is my 99th post! Whoa nelly.

  3. You are right. Hem is cute!! Adorable. You are making me feel ashamed that I haven't been making baby gifts. Maybe now that I will not be teaching school anymore I'll take the time to do this.

  9. Can you give any advice on picture smocking? I am doing my 1st ps project, a pumpkin, and am unsure what to do with the thread on the back of the garment. I have A-Z of smocking and it does mention ps with multiple needles, but it doesn't seem to help me! Any pointer?
    Thanks so much,
    Stephanie

    I don't have a way to reply to you. Thank you for your kind words. The smocking plate is Peter Cottontail by Gwen Milner

  12. Thank you for the response. I have just discovered your blog and have enjoyed it so much. I will try to find that pattern on ebay - I've checked several other sites and haven't had any luck finding it. Would you happen to know a shop that I might find it? My address is glcarr@zoominternet.net.
