Dresses for Africa

Earlier this year I joined a group of ladies at church who where sewing little dresses for Africa.  Here is a sample of a couple that I made.

Birthday Quilt

Rebecca and I made this quilt for a birthday quilt.  I decided to make all the grands a quilt for their birthday this year.  They are all at the age where cute dresses doesn't cut it anymore.

Smocking

I had decided to start a smocking project.  Needed something to do while watching TV in the evenings.  This is the "Enchated" pattern by Annastazia Cruz.  I made it in a size 6.  I haven't done any smocking for a couple of years so I really enjoyed it.  The trouble with finishing a project is that you have to think about what to do next.

Quilting

It's been a long time since I have posted anything.
Rebecca and I have been doing quilting this summer.  But you gotta know, I am not a quilter.
So far we have made two quilts.  The blue one is for me and the yellow/black one is for her.
The thing I have learned from this is that I have a lot more to learn.  Our quilts are not show pieces but rather to be used.

Linen


I have started doing a lot of work with linen.  It is a wonderful fabric.  And it has health benefits.  You can't get better than that.  Here is a sample of a few things I have been doing.

Sleep pants

Pillow cases

I have also made some linen/cotton dish towels.
These make great gifts
