A Little Peek.....

It's amazing what a bit of rest will do for you! I have been back to the doctor two times over the past three days....but I find I am finally feeling better!!! I'm praising the Good Lord and hoping it continues!!!

In the meantime since completing the sweet bishop, I have now pulled out two projects that have sat for far too long waiting to be finished! The first item is my daygown from Jeannie B's OFB sew-a-long last fall. This precious daygown has been stitched completely by hand....no machine was used. Even the buttonholes were stitched by hand. I have so enjoyed working on this little garment. I find hand stitching so relaxing. It makes me wonder why I don't do it more often. Who knows....maybe I will now!

The stitching above is on the neck of the daygown. I have to stitch the hem in and then I'll show the entire gown. It is so pretty....I love white stitching on white fabric.

Back soon!

Amazing! I don't know if I am brave enough to stitch the entire garment by hand!

So thankful to read that you're feeling better! Your gowns are so very beautiful! I am in awe ever time I see one of your completed projects.

The gown is so sweet. May you continue to feel stronger with each passing day.

I was in on the sew-a-long also. I'm with you on hand work. Love it!
