My New Project

This fabric jumped in my cart at the fabric store.  I knew I had to do something with it but what?   I also knew it had to be something smocked, so I pleated and blocked it.

Then it was off to the collection of floss.  I picked a few colors I might use, not to sure yet.  So far this is where my direction seems to be going.

Now, I have to work out the details. I am sure most sewer's know just where they are going with a project. They have the pattern, fabric and smocking plate along with the floss color all picked out ahead of starting their project.  Just doesn't seem to be as interesting to me.   So we will see, just what happens here.


  1. Oh I totally get it. I am very much like that. I can't wait to see this lovely dress. The fabric and colors are so very pretty. It will be beautiful.

  2. I love this fabric! Can't wait to see what you come up with!
