Okay, this is a dress that I want to make. I think that its design is very interesting, and I’d like to make the one with sleeves.
The fabric I have actually is called ‘Sherbet Zebra,’ according to its label. It came from New York and it’s a linen. I LOVE the print, and something nice about this linen is that it isn’t a very wrinkly one. In total I have either four or five yards to work with. I would like to have a different fabric for the sleeves/upper dress, so I’ll be on the look-out.
I hope to have this made by next spring! It will be difficult to find time to sew with my new school schedule this fall, and before then I have tons of quilt projects I want to finish. 🙂
Until next time,
During those first few months earlier this year, I thought it was just perfect that people were getting rid of their duck fabrics. I kept collecting them from the free table, and soon enough I had plenty to make into a quilt, plus I had a few background duck pieces from my stash. Here’s the quilt!
Here it is! All three layers are joined at the seams. I have four things left to do now until I’m done: 1. Sew the opening closed, 2. safety pin it for quilting, 3. quilt it, and 4. make a label!
A neighbor and I had a challenge. We had a four yard piece of sunflower canvas, and we both wanted it. It was decided that by the next sewing guild meeting we would have to bring in a bag for show n’ tell made of this fabric. 🙂 Here is mine:

For three or four years now, we’ve had milkweed planted by the house, which always attracts monarchs. Earlier this week, I noticed a caterpillar happily chewing on the milkweed leaves. Here it is!
I’ve been making great progress on the quilt; in fact, I’m almost done! Here are some close-ups of the panels.
