What a sweet reminder of days past. I stumbled across this christening coat on Flickr while I was taking a break from "moving". It looks like a rayon fabric, probably smocked with silk floss. It was NOT made by me, but it is delightful. It reminds me why I have been working so hard to move this sewing room.
I need to get back to the grind. Can you say the word purge? In the past eighteen months I have reduced my fabric stash by half. I have either given it away, thrown it away or shock of shocks, sewn it up. I have shared before my new credo;
So all of that fabric, patterns, supplies that make you cock your head and say "What was I thinking?" are gone! Of course it doesn't hurt to have a tyrannical, former stock room organizing, retail store manager of a daughter help you. She is ruthless! If I waiver on something, she is ready to go for the jugular.If I don't love it; I don't keep it, buy it or use it.
But I do want this....
to turn into this. Almost there! I promise to take pictures and take you in a tour when it is done.
Of course could this be why it is taking so long? Baby just learned how to start cooing. We had to all gather round immediately and listen to the sounds of future wisdom revealed. What a delight that was. And modern technology allows Baby Mommy to record it on her phone to send to Daddy.
Whatcha doing Mimi?
The upside to the tyrant daughter is she brings this little nugget with her every time. I say a fair trade off.
