Sew Crafty Friday for September 19
Finally I have a moment to share something for Sew Crafty Friday.
First, here is the dress I've been working on for my little granddaughter. It's from an older (1980) McCalls pattern I originally bought to make for my own daughters, but never did. I still need to add buttons, buttonholes (3, in the back yoke) and hem the dress. It should still fit her next summer, thankfully! The weather is a little too cool to wear a sleeveless dress now. This is the cookbook I have nearly finished for a very belated wedding gift. And this is a look at two of the cookbook pages. I embellish them with cutouts from catalogs, etc. Last but not least, here is the "Snow Angels" cross stitch I recently started working on. This kit, which is on 18 count Aida (gulp!), was given to me by one of my daughters. It reminded her of herself and her older sister and winters long past. You can see that I have a good start stitching the older child. There's a lot of shading in it, but I think it's going to go quite quickly once the two children are stitched. How about you? If you have managed to accomplish or even start any crafting this week, then head on over to Waiting for Him and share your projects. Shereen and others will be eager to see what you have to share.
I live in scenic northern New England with my handsome husband. We're empty-nesters with a bunch of adorable grandchildren. We love (tent) camping and traveling, but don't get away as often as we'd like to.
