This weeks featured Christmas dress is a cute red and gold dot fabric. The bishop neckline features Jazzy Trees dancing around the top of the dress welcoming the Christmas season.
The sewing machine, serger, and pleater have gotten busy with Christmas orders.What could be better than making a dress designed for someone special.The fabric is here, and the cutting, pleating and sewing has beginning.Then comes the hand English smocking.
Stitching a smocked pattern is similar to counted cross stitch. You are watching a pattern and placing stitches at the correct places to make pictures or a design. When I attend craft shows, watching me smocking something seems to be of interest to shoppers passing by. Most are my patterns, also called plates, are purchased but I have tried my hand at designing patterns that I could not find.
What is your favorite thing about Thanksgiving and Christmas? Is it a memory? Something you did as a child with your parents or something more recent with your own children or grandchildren? Thanksgiving and Christmas are special because we are with the ones that we love the most sharing a meal, stories, catching up with what is going on in other peoples lives. Just doing a lot of talking and getting reacquainted with the people that you love.
In my case, my husband and I married in June of this year, so we are looking forward to celebrating these holdiays together with Rocky(our dog) and Leopard and Tiggr (our cats). We are excited about making new memories together.
