Just a Peek......


I have had this sweet little dress finished for Elisabeth for a week or so now. It is so cute...well, I think so anyway. I am hoping to get a few pictures of her in it in the next day or so. For now....here is a peek at the smocking. I really enjoyed the lines of the smocking plate. And the colors took me quite awhile to pick out...but I am thrilled with the finished product.



Last Sunday afternoon Emily and I sat in perfect quiet and stitched together. Everyone else in the house was napping and so it was just her and me....and our handwork. She worked on some fabric yo-yos and I put a hem in this dress. I like taking a little more time and putting in a hem that is almost invisible.

I traced off a pattern earlier today for one of the baby girl gifts I am going to make. I think that will be next on my sewing table. Plus I need to sew and pleat up a few more Wee Care gowns.....I am completely out and I love to have one to carry with me for when I have just a few minutes to stitch. Have a great day my friends!!!

Hi! I found your blog while I was looking for smocking websites/blogs. I love this!! Do you mind sharing what plate this is? I have only been smocking about a year. My baby girl is 5 and I hope she will let me smock for her for a few more years!!
Great blog!
