A Month of Sewing . . . Among other things

The basement has been reclaimed with new paint and new carpet. Hurray!

Truly it is better than before the flood.

In the meantime I have been sewing and smocking.

It is time for show and tell . . .  Here are some of the samples I made for stores in my area that carry my patterns.

Punch & Cookies

Strawberry Licorice
done up like
Halloween Licorice!

Here's another fun version of Strawberry Licorice done in fabric called The Ghastlies! by Alexander Henry. It is so fun!

I have also been smocking! I finished this little summer dress this week!
I love the ruffles! 

We just can't seem to get enough of ruffles these days.

She has a darling cross over front with smocking at the waist that goes all the way around to the button band down the back. I added sleeves and made some minor modifications. 

The pattern is called Serious Fun from Australian Smocking & Embroidery Issue #87. (Size 24 mos.)

The fabric is Moda from the California Girl line by Fig Tree Quilts. The tiny yellow print is Sunshine (20183 11) and the yellow & brown stripe is Sunshine (20184 11).


I have a new apron pattern called Blue Daiquiri that will debut on Monday, July 9!!

Two of my apron patterns will be featured on the 
Home Shopping Network! 
Juki America will air a segment planned for July 25 and use Punch & Cookies and Strawberry Licorice.  
Keep an eye out for them!
I was also recently featured on the Juki Facebook page.
Check it out.
Yes, we are going national!!!

Watch at your local store for patterns by

Happy Sewing!
