Just a tiny peek at the progress of the christening gown. This is a portion of the embroidery. I have made more progress since I took this picture a couple of nights ago. It always feels like slow going at this point. I am desperate to make good progress on the hand work this week. I am leaving to go out of town next week for SAGA convention. Sorry for the horrible picture, I took it from my chair at night, hence the ginormous shadow in the right hand corner.
Did you get a peek at the christening gown that Jeannie B posted over at the Old Fashioned Baby Sewing Room? Mine won't be anything like that, but man oh man is that a work of art! And a true family heirloom.
I also found this gem on Flickr. I love silk organza. I am not sure if this is silk, but it would be scrumptious made of silk. So pretty.
Thank you for your patience. I will be back soon with another peek to share.
