I've never been able to master bias binding, it is the one sewing thing that can send me into a crying heap in the corner. Another lovely smock - beautiful, actually.




Hope you have a very Happy Mother's Day, Vicki!


Vicki, I am loving these smocks you are making. As soon as I am done with my skirts I want to try one. Thank you to for the info about the continuous bias strip. I am so glad to learn how to do this. A very happy mother's day to you too. Clarice


Vicki, I really enjoyed reading about the smocks you are making. I have long been interested in traditional smocks worn by farmers and shepherds in the 18 and 19 centuries. So practical. I didn't know they were used by gardeners too, but of course it makes sense. Inspired, I am going to make a smock to use when I garden.

Your blog is fantastic.


I finally got my computer working again (turns out it needed a java update) and I can see all your pictures for the first time in weeks. Ahhhh!

Thank you for the bias strip tutorial link -- how clever that is! And tricky! What kind of genius thinks these things up anyway??

Happy Mother's Day to you too. :)

me: Thanks so much Linda, hope your Mother's Day is grand too!


whaou ... i like so much , very nice !!!!!

c'est trop mignon j'adore !!!!




I've been reading and enjoying your blog for a while now, but never commented before.

I LOVE the smocks you've done. I may try to do something similar myself, if you don't mind :)

me: please feel free to use whatever inspiration my blog provides! i'm flattered, really.


Again, love this! Thanks too for the link on how to make the binding. That's on my list to learn. Saving on posting time here, hehe, but also wanted to say how much I love your light blue garden chairs too!


thanks toni...i'll tell "the man"!
