A Party Dress

This pink dress is on the doll that will be given to charity. The fabrics are two pieces that I had from a bishop dress that I made as a challenge. The challenge was to make a two layer bishop dress which I did. The dress was completed before I had a granddaughter to wear it. By next summer Adina should be big enough to wear the bishop challenge dress.

Beautiful Thoughts

A woman's life
is a
patchwork of love
of precious memories patiently sewn
with stitches of time.

A Long Time Coming

I started this block in July and had to take out several hours worth of work because when I looked at the basket, it wasn't centered. When I sewed the basket on the next time, it was in the correct place. My other projects and travels seemed to get in the way of me finishing it in a reasonable amount of time. Now that the block is complete, I'm excited about starting another one. I'm not sure whether it will be a pieced or appliqued block at this point. This block is still part of the Piecemaker's Quilt from 1995 that I started in January of 2010.
