Three buttons close the back.  Seriously, collar does lay flat...why it flipped I don't know.

I have made this bubble many times before...girl and boy versions. This time, it just gave me fits during construction. But it is done. Hope birthday boy's mama likes it!!

Peter Rabbit


What I am working on right now.  A commissioned romper for a first birthday.  Mr. Rabbit will be center front...and for starters he is just about done.

Poly Cotton Imperial Broadcloth, pleated on an Amanda Jane 24 Row pleater.  Peter covers 18 pleats total...there are 36 pleats centered in 2 inches.  Still have some stitching to do...but he is just about as perfect as any rabbit can be.

What are you stitching these days?? I have plenty to keep me busy...just need more time in every day!!

Silk ribbon Embroidery class I taught in my shoppe.  NOW I have many many packages of silk ribbon that have idled in storage.

Having a bit of a 'crabby' sore throat, sniffles kind of day means mindless chores are appropriate today. SEW I sort and organize the silk ribbon boxes.  WOW do I have more than the colors of the rainbow.

Inventory /catalog list to come.  For now...check out this link for the colors available...many of which I have some of! The link will take you to YLI's color chart.

 When gone, they will be gone...unless I win that
Power Ball

 tonight...which would be a dream come true...big DREAMS. 

Back to sorting and filing for now...More to come!!
