I have made some progress since I last checked in with you all. I started working on the Feliz dress for my niece Mady's birthday. Her birthday isn't until May, but I was really excited to try out this new pattern. I am pleased with how easy it has been so far. The instructions are a little sparse and don't have much detail, but I haven't run into any problems yet.
Here is the overdress so far. The underdress will be a red with white pin dots.
Here is a close-up of the hem ruffle. I love how the red serging looks on this!
Here, also is a close-up of the ricrack I used on the front.
I also finished a project for my dear friend Amanda's sweet little boy's birthday. I won't post pictures of that one yet so as not to spoil the surprise. I am a little late getting it in the mail. Sorry P!
I finished this twirl skirt set, too. It is hard to see in these pictures, but the green fabric at the bottom of the skirt has ladybugs, dragonflies and butterflies and says "girl bugs" on it. The skirt is really, really full. :) This one will be going to Associated Sewing here in town. My good friend, Dawn, is the manager there and she lets me put things in her shop. I haven't made anything for quite a while, so I thought I'd take this one in there.
So, now that I have two "new projects" finished and a third almost done, I am going to have to find some old projects to finish. I figure I finished two older quilt projects that I had, so I finished two new projects. I'll finish the Feliz dress and then I'll find an old project to finish. Maybe my Happy Hour quilt. I am interested to try out my new desk for quilting a larger quilt.
