Gifts Incoming and Outgoing

I was asked to smock a dress for a very special young
lady.  The dress fabric was purchased at a quilt shop it has
a linen like look and is 100% cotton.  The smocking
design I worked out on smocking graph paper.  I know
the design looks simple but it took me days of drawing and
erasing to figure it out.  I have new found appreciation
for smocking plate designers.
The center section is back smocked and the 
University of Kentucky logo is picture smocked
on top.  The hearts are geometric smocking, I designed
that area as well.
A one of a kind dress, stitched with love.

Sweet Marie recently had a month long
celebration of her blogging for 5 years!  5 years
of blogging and 5 giveaways!  I was the lucky 
winner of this beautiful necklace!
Have faith in you...that is something
we all need to remember.

The necklace is long and so
much fun to wear as everyone
seems to notice it!
A sweet tag, 
 book pages, and LACE!
Thank you Marie!

Love to all,
