wow sheri! I finished another row on my sisters shaw. It is taking a while, but then so is everything else. Of course, when I started this project she was living in Germany. Her husband's mom isn't doing well so they just moved back to Texas where it is way to warm. Hmm, maybe in an A/C office?

Sheri, that gown is beautiful!

Frannie, thanks for looking at my online store. It's not doing too well at the moment. I need to go in and do some serious work on it.

Thanks so much for all the compliments on the dress. I wish it were easier to get pictures that actually do it justice. My niece's father-in-law is a Minister so I thought the dress would be a good choice. I love doing white work - Edwardian period is a favorite of mine.

Blessings, Sheri

With all the trials and troubles you had with this lovely gown I want you to know it turned out breath taking.... Lovely, Lovely, Lovely. Soon your back will rest and you will be giving all the love you placed into it to the newest addition. Great work...

Just mixed up some cookie dough and refrigerated it so it will be ready to roll out and cut into Easter bunnies. It's payback for the kids across the fence who brought us Christmas cookies last year.

Canned dandelion jelly today, dehydrated dandelion roots, and cleaned out gardens. With chores, I am left with very little knitting/crocheting time today.

I'll post it on my blog later, but here is the blogger who inspired this project (earrings):

http://beansiebabbles.blogspot.com/

She has a link to another pattern I would like to try. I may have to locate more hoops to create with.

The girls want some now too.

Fixed my cousin's computer. I hope that is the last of my distractions for a while because I have crafting to do!

Sheri, that christening gown is exquisite, and should be a family treasure.

Kristina, I love those earrings! I checked out that website. Thanks for sharing.

Trisha, that little crocheted dress is adorable! I hope someone appreciates all the work in that.

Ceejay, you know I love your aprons!

The hat box was really beautiful!
I have been spinning yarn. Its a new addition to my crafts fair offerings this year. I also have a warp on my loom that I keep ignoring,I really need to work on that. Time to redo the tie-up pattern and start anew. I am looking for a used drum carder is anyone knows of one that isn't too expensive, I will give it a really good home.

I am back to a stash buster bedspread I put aside before the holidays, plus started planning a dress to recycle some old clothes.
