Sew Crafty Friday,and B is for...





Buttons. I need to think about what kind of buttons to put on the little vintage dress. I want something flat, but not plain. Maybe something in white with a flower shape carved into it? The dress is more peachy than pink. I'll have to see what I can find. Speaking of find...my buttonhole attachment was lost, but I found it the other day. Now I can actually finish some things!

I tried to spread the dress out so you can see what a full skirt it has. Don't know if I already posted this...but it's a princess line. Now I'm thinking I need to find a crinoline pattern so the dress poofs out like it should.

More Bs from me...


Brothers. My oldest brother, who will be 61 in December, lives in Michigan. I had two other brothers, also older than me. Unfortunately, they have both passed away. I really miss them, although I hardly remember the brother I lost 35 years ago. I just know he had a great sense of humor. My middle brother lived in New Mexico. He was the coolest guy--not a mean bone in his body. One of the best trips I ever took in my life, was a trip around New Mexico, Colorado, Utah and Arizona in his old VW. I've never seen anything like the Southwest, and I sure with my brother was around to show it off to my kids.

Books. I love books. But I don't hang on to most of them. Books are living things...they shouldn't be left to collect dust on a shelf. I admit to being a big Stephen King fan, and am currently reading "The Shining" for maybe the 100th time. It still scares me, LOL!

tee-hee, nevermind! I see it was the FINISHED product from your lucky vintage loan! :) I thought the dress looked familiar, but with those cute sleeves and spread out skirt, it does look different. ;D

Clare, the dress is beautiful. I'm a SK fan too, and The Shining is one of my favorite books of all times. I've read a couple of copies all to pieces.

Wowsers! Love the dress; and thank you for the link for the ABC's. A wonderful concept. I will have to go back to the blog later after work to read it over so that I can understand it totally.
Blessings to you.
