Next Week's Project

I HAVE to put down the charity sewing and work on Hannah's smocked crab sundress. I started smocking this (only got 1/2 of one of the cable rows completed) before the preterm labor last year. For several weeks now I've been working on it off and on. It's my first picture smocking attempt. Hannah goes to "camp" next week from 9-12 at the preschool that she'll enter in the fall. I'm going to devote all my time to finishing this. I have about 1.5 rows to back smock and then I can sew. So........I SHOULD be able to finish it without any problems.

Also, all I have left on another CareBear isolette shirt is to sew on the velco.

Oh! Oh! I can't forget my shopping spree. Today I spent wwwaaayyy too much money at JoAnn Fabrics. They had a big sale going on. Since Hannah thinks she can sleep in only a diaper, I picked up some pink heart sleepware thinking that if I made something for her that she'd sleep in it. Well, as many would guess, as soon as I showed it too her she said, "I don't like hearts." 3 year olds!!! I also got lots of thread that was 1/2 off and some cozy flannel for isolette shirts and some eyelette for a sundress for Hannah and some denim for a backpack for her this fall and some......ok, better stop there. See, I told you I spent too much money.

Happy Sewing!
