Smocks in the Shop

Only enough fabric and time allowed me to make two toddler smocks, but they are both in the shop this afternoon.

Christmas Greetings!

Earlier this week I "traversed afar" and am home for a few days to visit over Christmas. God was so gracious to give me safe travels, and I made it into the driveway before our snowstorm hit.

Not long after I came home, the sewing room came to life once again as I stormed my fabric bins, patterns, and notions. My sewing machine has been been humming softly as aprons are being produced to fill up the shop.

But meet the newest 1950's inspired design: Margaret. Using three apron styles that I like, I decided to combine them together, and must say am happy with the result. Hopefully you'll enjoy her, as much as I do!

More pictures are up right over here!

I trust all of my sewing friends are doing well, and will have a joyous and very merry Christmas! With that, I'm off to don one of my own aprons and start working on that cookie dough...

The Lost Art of Tatting

Over the weekend I ransacked an antique store while on a historical home tour. I picked up several yards of some gorgeous Victorian/Edwardian lace, a darling 1920's/30's girls dress pattern, and was only going to spend $3. Buuut, I came across this pristine 1920's baby gown with tatting around the neckline and sleeves, and then some embroidery on the front yoke. It was severly marked down, and yes ... I grabbed it for "someday." =)

This morning I pulled out my tatting box, and laid out my bookmarks on the new baby gown, and now have them listed in my shop! Take a look to see if anything catches your fancy!

The Dotted Pink Tote

This was the last thing I sewed before I left home. It never sold at the craft show, and now I've finally had time to get is listed in the shop.
My next project is to start taking pictures of the new tatted bookmarks that I've done in my limted spare time, so I can add those to my currently empty shop.
