Recent Projects

I can't believe this summer has gone by so fast, but having been very busy helped to make that happen.  I wanted to share with you some of the things I have been doing.

A long time young friend called and said he met the right gal and was getting married.  He had told her I sewed and she wondered if I would make some brides-maids dresses.  This is the pattern.  I think it is pretty--I went out and bought me one!!  :-D

I made a prototype just to make sure of the sizing.  I had to make some tweeks but not much.

These are the dresses.  They really are pretty!  And the girls wore them with a white ribbon around their waist.  I don't have a picture of that, but they looked very nice.  There were a LOT of compliments about them.


I made three.  They were so fun to make.  I still haven't made mine yet but I will!
           

This dress is a prototype of the first pattern the bride choose.  It isn't quite finished yet.  I have to put in the facings.  But this pattern ended up not being used.  It was too a-line for the girls.  Two of the girls just had babies and the third was pregnant so a-line didn't work.



The next thing I was to show you is the shower curtain I made from a quilt pattern.  There were 12 blocks but I chose 9 of them.  The applique was hand done.  There is not batting but I did back it and then I tied it off.  I think it turned out nice.  What do you think?



I had to hold the camera at a funny angle to get most of the curtain in.  Now that this one is done I am going to make one for the other shower--not this pattern, but I am going to make a quilted shower curtain.


Last but not least!  Are the quilts I made for my Wonderful Grandsons!   Aren't they cute!  These were so fun to make.



I hope you enjoyed looking at my pictures.  God bless
