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.
