It's raining again and I've been huddled up next to my iron and sewing machine for the last few days, staying cozy, and blissfully stitching. Olivia's first birthday is coming up fast, and I've been busy making her a dress. Something for spring that she can wear when it warms up. I found this older Simplicity pattern (#3843) in my stash that I hope will be the right size. I'm squealing over the yellow jacket too--is that darling or what? I forget where I got the sweet rose print fabric; I've been hanging onto it for ages just waiting for the right project, and this little babydoll dress seems perfect for it, don't ya think?
I want to thank you guys for the amazing support you've been giving me. I'm really touched--it makes me love what I do! As I was reading through the comments (and following links to the blogs on the other end), I've been SO inspired by all the creativity going on "out there". My head is spinning with new ideas---there's so much I want to do. And not just sewing and embroidery projects either. Anyway, I'll be back tomorrow, with the finished dress (if all goes well..), and will announce our Blanket Statement winner then too.
Keep your fingers crossed!
