I used to do most of my sewing late at night and I wasn't sure how it was going to be starting out at 10:00-- but just like riding a bike, it's still natural to me! First I whipped out a couple of flannel pillowcases for Kendle-- thought I was being so smart making two of them-- later realized it was a directional print which explains the extra fabric! Oh well, they will be sleeping, right?
I considered embroidering their names on the band but didn't want to call late at night to see who slept on what side of the bed-- wanted the names on the right side-- I get stupid that way! Rationalized that no embroidery meant Baby Harper could have one when she got bigger!
Next up on my list of things to do was to re-hem this little dress I made for Allison about 22 years ago-- she and Caitlin had matching dresses-- this one will fit Harper so she will be getting her picture made soon!
Here is Santa with his pompom! Smocking plate is by Little Memories and is smocked on forest green micro-check. The snowflakes have silver filament to make them shimmer but this camera couldn't capture that. His mustache is two long boullions.
Work has finally settled down so I spent time this weekend organizing-- Called ATT Uverse and they sent me the neatest wireless cable box- too bad I can't make it work-- will call them bright and early Monday morning-- I think they need to do something at their end. I really missed having a TV in here so this is going to be great-- and Allison will appreciate it when she sleeps in here this week for Thanksgiving!
Here are parting shots of the ruffle panties-- thank goodness this still fit! If I make them again I would do the elastic "my way" instead of the casings, stitch it directly to legs and have a self ruffle.
