Two strands of floss were used to smock the top.
My question to everyone is:
I just had to share this today. Last summer started this event with a little smocked outfit for Disney. However, the Cinderella and Belle ballgowns were Emma's choice to wear. Eventually, I did get photos of Miss Emma wearing this design. And so with this, a normal, not so special day can turn into something special!
Today started out pretty much the same....nothing special. Spent the morning weeding the wild strawberry plants out of my iris bed. A bit disappointed that my irises were not the tall bearded variety but still quite pretty...antique yellow and cream. I love that the wild bunnies love the strawberry plants but I do not love what those darling little creatures do to my plants! Just so you know, I don't have any March Hares or White Rabbits carrying pocket watches in my garden. But then who does? And then my not-so-special, normal day changed....
I did a little watering in the hopes that it might make my azaleas finally open up and decided to quickly gather the mail before I came in. There was a big manila envelope that was full of what I suspected were magazines. Hoffman Media was my big hint! Hummmm...
Kathy and everyone at Sew Beautiful did a wonderful job and I am so pleased.
I have to say at times, my "senior moments" can border on ridiculous. Oh, my! Is this the issue of Sew Beautiful that my design is in? Yes it was! For me this was so exciting as this design was one that was taken from a design I did many years ago. With some encouragement from a smocking friend, Janet Gilbert, I had submitted it and was so pleased when it was accepted. It's always nice when someone likes what you love to do. "Thanks again Janet!"
Smocking for this little girl is something I enjoy
but I much prefer just to play with Emma and her brother.
Emma asked for white bunnies but only if they were on a pink dress.
So we have "Emma's Bunny Garden" design.
This is Emma. She has to be bribed to get pictures.....
There was much foot stomping in this process.
little diva comes out!
love that digital camera...
that I was happy with about a dozen.
........so I guess the new Pink Princess Bike with silver streamers was worth it!
