New to me

I know smocking has been around for many years. 
I have smocked many dresses

As with anything, there is always variations.  new ways for things to be done.

This is vertical smocking
Where the smocking is done vertically instead of horizontal.

It takes a bit to get the concept.

I enjoy the possibilities

This inspired me

This will be a quilt for Christmas.
I am collecting the fabrics.

 Not a huge quilt but I think it will be fun!

How do you get inspired?

For me, sometimes the inspiration comes from a request.
which is what happened at Christmas.
I always ask the grand kids what do you want For Christmas and it has always been something on their list.
Until this year!

When I asked Seth, he said "anything you make me"! 

When I asked Zoe, she said, "something warm, and, soft.

Something warm, and, soft!

I know, Christmas was a long time ago!
My goal is to make something for everyone for the upcoming Christmas. 

so, I am inspired!
