Are you like me, when you have things on your "I have to get _______ done!" is when blog surfing sickness strikes (BSS)? Well it happens to me. A lot! On my ironing board are the pieces that are cut out to zip off a baby gift before the fabric for the next christening gown arrives. Christening gown grandma wants the gown by Memorial Day weekend, so I know there will be many many attacks of BSS in the next FOUR AND A HALF weeks. I can do it,
But anywhooooo in the midst of all the flurry over my seamless pleating tutorial (thank you kind, adoring fans) I have gotten hits from all over.
Well that was a long drawn out verbose way to saying "look what I found!" Jodie of Vintage RicRac has opened my eyes to an addiction that I didn't know existed. Selvages. Now I have used selvages and their awesome colorway dots to match floss but then tossed it aside like a bad habit. Jodie has made garments from it, a parasol, a tote bag and many other cool things. But the selvage dress....ohmygoodness. So cool. And so fun. Who knew? Just the type of project to throw my procrastination gene into overdrive. Think of the hours I could chop away at that FOUR and A HALF weeks playing with selvages.
This cute pattern is next up on the hit parade. Need to go pleat it, so I can smock a cute little Peter Rabbit on it. Baby Shower is May 3rd. Also need to buy a Peter Rabbit book to go with it. Isn't that a cute idea? On the baby shower invite it asked for classic children's literature to build a library for baby. If it weren't for the cg we know that this baby gift would not be complete before 10pm on May 2nd. But that won't be the case. Wanna bet I am still breaking a sweat to get it wrapped 30 minutes before the shower?
