I wanted to take this time to wish everyone who follows my blog a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
I'm afraid I have been very slack in keeping up my blog over the past few months. I've been going through some personal things that have taken most of my attention. Unfortunately the issues are not resolved yet, and may not be for awhile, but I will try to keep this updated as best as I can.
I'm still sewing quit a bit for my granddaughters, not so much for the public, but I'm ok with that. It was mostly a dream of mine to be able to do that, and honestly I have'nt put in the time it takes to get my "things" out there for the public to view. Maybe in the upcoming year I will try to do better.
I do want to share this coat and dress outfit that I made for McKayla, mainly because it turned out really well. I'm not one to sew much with plaids, simply because I don't want to take the time to match up the plaids, but I got this material at such a good price, I could'nt pass it up. The dress is a short sleeve with pipping around the hip area, that's the red looks like ribbon, and then the coat has the red pipping around the pockets and the collar. Surprisingly it went together very easy and I was quite pleased with the way it turned out.
I've done a few other "firsts" but I will save those for a future post.
Again I wish every one has a happy holiday and a safe one.
