Smocked


Ilse's little bishop dress is now ready to have the sides sewn up and be finished off. I can't tell you how excited I am to see her in this sweet little gown! My schedule was filled this week so I was lucky to get the embroidery finished, although in the back of my mind I was hoping to be finished by Easter Sunday. Oh well. Ends up both Ilse and dd Mystie are suffering with the flu so are spending the weekend at home trying to conquer the dreaded virus.


I added little bullion roses in the center of every other heart using some light pink floche that I had in my stash.

Wishing all of you a very happy Easter. He is Risen!
