Almost there!

Well, it's been a little while since I updated. Somehow I get behind with my sewing and an outfit drags on for weeks and weeks. Sometimes I get caught up in little details and just fall in love and lose myself. This week I've been dog/house sitting, and I've treated it like an artist's retreat! I've accomplished a lot, and I'll be able to post the new outfit Sunday, tomorrow! Here is a sneak peak:


  1. Exquisite work! Do you ever tat lace for your clothing creations? Or other types of handmade lace?

  2. Thank you so much! I've decided that tatting, in the fine cord that I get from the lace store, is still too coarse for this scale. I do have a long piece of Bucks Point lace that I made several years ago that I've been saving for something special.

    I wish I had the time to make bobbin lace now. I could do it in the evenings, but I have so many books I want to read. I also want to try bobbin lace in a finer thread. There are too many things I want to do!

    Thank you so much for your comment!
