I know that I said having my smocking pleated was a great idea, but I couldn't wait to get started. The blessing gown for my new granddaughter is underway. I decided to do the pleating myself. I forgot how much I enjoy smocking--really any kind of hand work is very relaxing for me.
I looked all over Wichita, Provo, and Orem trying to find some fabric with ballet slippers on it. No luck. I finally ordered the perfect fabric from a place called the Virgina Quilter. Great fabric, price and quick delivery--I'll order from them again. Now to start the quilt!
