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. :)
