Just a quick post today. A little smocked dress that I made recently has been waiting for that finishing touch and this week I was inspired to make some bullion knot roses to set off the smocking.
I loved the cheerful strawberry print of the fabric and the almost Christmassy colours and somehow it was just right for smocking a little girl's dress. You can see more photos of it over on my Etsy shop.
I am expecting my daughter and family to stay next week and am madly tidying up my sewing room which will be little Jake's room for the next few months, so I expect not too much stitching will be happening. But what fun to be a granny and have a 1 year old in the house again!
