I’ve been trying to copy one of Elizabeth’s favorite dresses… I thought it would be easy, but after having a second go at it I am thinking I should leave it up to the professionals! The first time I tried to wing it without making a pattern… didn’t work. The second time I made up a pattern:
No Tiana, you are not being helpful.
The pattern kind-of helped, but I am still not happy with how it is going. I am going to sleep on it and decide in the morning whether I should keep trying, or give up.
Something I am much better at is making Granny Squares:
My friend Mari saw THIS POST the other day and sent me the link in an email saying: “Do you think we can do both grannies …. I mean… a granny quilt and a granny crochet afghan…????”
What do you think I said? Yes, of course 🙂 We decided to start with the crochet and will do the quilt next month when she is back from vacation. I plan to join the granny squares with the blue yarn using the flat braid method if I can work it out. I had a bit of a practice and think I can… (I think I can.. I think I can…).
And in other news, Alice and I “Skype Sewed” the other day….
…..and while we were sewing, the phone rang at her end and guess who it was? Lola! So I got to say “hi” to Lola through skype on the phone… hmm… technology…!! Hopefully one day I’ll get to meet her in real life 🙂
Well, it is bedtime…. sleep tight everyone and till next time,
