We have had company the past few days...so I haven't spent much time on the computer. My sweet niece, Lisa, came for a visit and I had the priviledge of teaching her to sew. She did great and even is thinking of purchasing a sewing machine....my work is done!! Ahh, to teach someone else the joy of sewing....it is priceless!!!
On that note, I am teaching our Smocking Guild meeting tomorrow evening. The "theme" is creative embellishments for children's clothes and I will be teaching them to make my sweet fabric flowers as well as scalloped piping. I have my handouts all ready and am still pulling my kits together. It is going to be fun as always!!! I am finding that I really enjoy teaching....when it is something I really like to do. My background is teaching children....but that is different than teaching adults...I think anyway.
This sweet Wee Care dress, in both pictures, is my most recently finished dress. I love to try out new ideas on these little gowns. On this one, I tried out a bullion bow. Mine did not turn out great...but for my first try...not so bad!!! Do you like to try new things? Or do you stick with the tried and true?? I am always trying new things with sewing. I like the old tried and true things...but I get bored and need to stir things up here and there as well!!! What about you???
