Smocking Practice

We are back from a very enjoyable vacation.  I hope you checked out my daughters' blogs that have links on my last post.  I think the highlight was the winerys.  Sonoma and Napa counties are very beautiful.

Besides working on the turtle quilt, which I hope to quilt soon, I did knitting and smocking. I had this little piece pleated for several months, but hestitated because I wasn't happy with my last efforts.  I bought a dress pattern that calls for an insert so that I wouldn't waste a lot of material if it didn't look good.  But it is coming along nicely and I am happy with it.

I think you may see a finished dress from this project.
