A birthday party along with trick or treating is planned for our house. Dorothy and the Cowardly Lion are both expected to make an appearance and are now old enough to think that a party for Grandda is pretty exciting!
Although I am still getting use to the idea of it being October, it is time to start making plans for Christmas sewing!
You can look forward on the next few blogs with as many Christmas ideas as I can think of and a free "Holly" embroidery design. The above picture is from Creative Needle Magazine 2006. The dress is made using pattern #122 and is made out of white pique, red rick rack and hand embroidery. Do you ever wonder why the children are often barefoot in the photos? Shoes simply add nothing to the photograph and are often distracting. :) Michie'
Featherwale corduroy is one of my all time favorite fabrics for Fall and Winter sewing. It is soft enough for smocking while at the same time just warm enough for our mild winters in the south. What's on my list for corduroy? I have turquoise for a dress with smocked snowmen, hot pink for an appliqued jumper, and black for a dressy coat. A little sewing time would be nice now.... :) Michie'
