|I pieced my Bargello quilt. I now need to cut the vertical strips and reassemble the|
strips. This quilt is supposed to show the deep sea moving up to the surface
and sky. I ordered new sail boat fabric because my original fabric didn't work well. I'll use
the original sailboat fabric for the backing instead. It's an intensely blue quilt and the abstract
water is both soothing and dramatic. I'm really hoping that the image I have in my head will match the reality.
Tess is holding Charlotte Au Chocolat which happens to be this week's reading.
Yesterday, I went to the garden store and bought some strawberry plants. It's been my dream to grow abundant
Grow The Best Strawberries.
|I started this dress last year in April. I had great plans to knit a matching sweater. It didn't happen. I'm sure|
I got distracted and moved on to some other project. Anyway, it's now way too small for Tess. Since I've made several Lazy Days Skirts recently, I decided to drop the
regular hem for this dress and substitute the ribbon hem. After all that practice edge-stitching
the ribbon, I thought this ribbon hem would be a snap. It should have been easy, but I botched it pretty badly. I can't un-do it. I shall just be glad that this dress is finally finished and move on. So, here is my first dress ever! Those darling little apples are so sweet and I know a new baby girl who will get this dress and hopefully overlook the amateur sewing job.
