The couple of hours I had in the sewing room was well worth it yesterday afternoon.
I made baby Clancy a muslin wrap for the summer. He may have only had it hemmed until he gave me gorgeous 8 week old smiles and coos at Bible Study on Tuesday....then he got a gingham edge.
Here is Baby born modelling it......
Also got the dress finished, this is another enthusiastic model as I matched up the ribbon. More great near freebie fabric, has some stretch in it or would have been good for quilts, especially as I have over 6 metres! I used my favourite shirring elastic technique, probably should have used masking tape for a sewing line guide but it is just for home. I think I may make me one of these as well for the summer, good over bathers.
And here is one for Chookyblue, a big thank you...and chook photo, for helping me on the phone last night with my uploading problem, worked like a charm this morning...and I just got that little envelope from you-I think I need to go and make a bag now!
Mother was ready to take on all comers, babies are looking much better than a week or two ago when they were almost drowned. I wonder how she will feel when those baby ducks take off in the water...will she ever twig?
Kids home for report writing today. We clipped and washed Archie-he held onto that piece of raisin toast throughout the entire one hour ordeal! Look at those eyes!
Still 2 days to give the 200th photo a caption, and I have heard from Dawn-Marie and am all sorted, thanks.
