This first project was finished in April. It is a free design from Shepherd’s Bush.
If you purchase the JABCO button, you receive the pattern for free. It was quick and cute and took just one Sunday afternoon.
Ta – da! I finally finished my school project. I don’t plan on starting another since the remaining subjects for this year are the most teacher-intense/involved.
And I started this one last night. Here it is after two hours’ work, on fabric I dyed myself.
May stitching to date:
1st – no stitching. A sewing day. 😦
2nd – finished Little House Needleworks’ Little Sheep Virtue No. 12;
– started Little House Needleworks’ Home of the Brave
3rd (today) – plan to start Hands On Designs – A Year in Chalk, February
The stitching has been fun, but the sewing — not. I have done more work with my seam ripper than with my sewing machine, I think. I have been getting advice along the way, too — but it still seems that sewing will never be my “thing.” I am a happy cross stitcher and a frustrated, stressed seamstress.
Maybe I will have a finished dress to show you next week. Please don’t hold your breath!
Until next time… keep stitching and smiling!
