Gift for Dani

I heard from Dani that the gift I made for her arrived safely. I have been reading her blog for a long time and she is an awesome stitcher! Usually, I have to go thru my patterns a couple of times before I actually decide on what to stitch but not this time. I stitched the freebie Love Takes Two from Dragon Dreams. I decided to finish it off by making it into a tin. I really have come to like making these little tins!

Yesterday I managed to sew Allie another pair of gauchos. As you can tell she loves colors that are bright and stick out. That is so much like her personality! I just want to say that I am not playing favorites when it comes to sewing clothes for my kids. Krissy is 13 and won't be caught dead in something that is handmade. *Sigh* I know it is just the age (I hope!) but I miss making her clothes and hearing her proudly telling her friends that her mom made them for her. Mac is all boy so anything I do make for him instantly gets stained or ripped.

I think today I will start on the backstitching on Geisha. I am so close to being finished with her that she is all I want to stitch on right now. :)

Oh wow - did I ever fall behind on your blog while I have been busily wrapped up in stitching gifts in my spare time! I adore the tin you made for Dani, and it is just perfect for her!

I am sure that Dani will love her tin, great choice, and I love Allie's pants.

You have done such gorgeous stitching Dawn and I feel very fortunate to have received some of it. Thank you.
Geisha is lovely and once you've finished the backstitching you will probably feel a little sad putting her down. Wonderful progress on Above the Clouds!!
Love Allie's gauchos - they look great and must be very comfortable.

What a sweet tin, and perfect for Dani. The newest pair of gauchos turned out very cute too. Looking forward to seeing your next post of Geisha with some backstitch.

The little tin you did for Dani is so cute. I love the red ribbon around the edge.
