                                                     Trying to decide

Defiantly time to get back to sewing and now there are decisions to be made.

I have decided to use the HOLLY pattern, from Bonnie Blue.  I have used this a thousand times but it still needs a new look.
  So, wanting to use fabric on hand I thought the bees would be cute.
I want to add ribbon and now the decision as to use yellow, which doesn't seem like a good idea or go with something along the line of using black ribbon.

               Using black ribbon

My other choice is to order black and white colored ribbon as suggested.  I am tending to think black and white, what do you think?

                Back to sewing

My last surgery was yesterday and went well.  I was able to come home last night, because I have such good care takers.

so, I am back to the sewing room and getting to try out the light my granddaughter gave me for Christmas.  It has been a long time, but it will get lots of use now.

French Christening gown

 I don't speak French but isn't his just beautiful?   I found it on pinterest and know it breaks the language barrier.   I could just gaze on it for hours.

                  A rose by any other name would smell as sweet.

I am sending a rose today to everyone that needs one.  so many times we go through things not of our choosing.  Just know that at such times God is there.   A prayer for you.

I want to thank all for the prayers when I was down.  It lifts you up in away that is hard to express.

It has been along time

Wow, the last post was Sept 30th.  That is a long time ago and a lot has happened to me since then.
The good of all of it, is I am recovering and getting stronger by the day.  Right now I am dealing with dizziness but am hoping they find the cause soon.

To help pass the healing time I am doing samplers of smocking.  Not just samplers but a new to me method of smocking.  Instead of working across the rows, this method had you working vertically, down the rows.  Getting a grip of the new method does take some getting used to.

My first sampler:
