I am early...
we are going out of town for
the Easter weekend and not
coming back until Sunday night
and I didn't want to be late again...so I
decided to post early.
Welcome to day three of
Tea for Two...
A special Thank you to
Mary from Needled Mom for all her hard work on
scheduling of us bloggers! (and for the extra time...)
Cori at Creativity Amongst Chaos who created
our beautiful vintage pattern to stitch
and of course,
our Dear Mdm Samm at Sew We Stitch who created
You are all FANTASTIC!
Thank you for coming today...
Shall we begin?
I love all things VINTAGE,
probably because everything I grew
up with and loved then, is
NEW again now!
I wanted to try to do this pattern
a little different...
I call it Free Motion Coloring.
It started out nice enough...
I thought, this will be a breeze.
I was loving it!
Then, I realized oh...what to do with those legs.
it was VERY LATE AT NIGHT
LATE AT NIGHT.
I will just sew on another portion of it and
then go back to the legs...
Then it happened.
At 2:42 AM.
Things went GREEN.
You need to make the skirt different too.
I think at this point I was on CRACK.
But I KEPT SEWING.
Whatever. I had one more evening to finish.
Or I wouldn't make my DAY.
But with only about 2.5 hrs before time to get up to go to work...
I decided to Stop.
The last evening begun like this.
I just figured I would power through and see what
I could finish.
I didn't finish.
email to Mary....
begging for another day.
Thank you Mary!
With the extension...I was able to settle down and go back to creating.
and so, that last night (Thursday) I was able to finish.
I was very excited when I found some DS Flea Market Fancy
material to finish this...
the ruffle and the back are this beautiful fabric.
Now, free motion quilting isn't easy.
I think I am BLIND now...
even with my readers...
my FOOL head was down right next to that needle and
my sweet little Janome was crawling slower
than a turtle...
but it really paid off...
I am very happy with this and
would do it again most definitely...
Just NOT ON A DEADLINE.
Thank you for joining me..
I REALLY enjoyed doing this one
and am GRATEFUL to have the
opportunity to share it...even if it was LATE.
Please join the rest of today's creations!
It Seams to be Sew You are here!
I hope you all had a wonderful
