Vogue 7681

I have never used vogue patterns before but a very special young lady is getting baptized in a couple of weeks and so I wanted to make a dress that is just as special as she is. When I saw this pattern I just had to give it a try. For Kate, I decided to go with view C with a white organdy overlay on the skirt. With working outside the home now, it took me a bit longer to put it together then it would have in the past. I also don't think I have ever done a dress that required so much hand work but it was rewarding all the same. I wish I could be there in Montana to see her reaction when she receives it in the post on Monday or Tuesday. Misty, don't forget to send me a photo of her in it...and maybe one of Kate's reaction when she sees it. Thanks~
As usual, my photos are not the best but here is a look:

I did shift the flowers along the waist line around  a little after I took this photo. The center one was shifted to the left and another added in to the right to make it look a bit more even.

I have been enjoying the designs that Kareen of The Painted Quilt has been offering as part of her First Friday Freebie but have not attempted any until now. I just completed her #12 freebie, the Huswif Needlecase. I opted to do it in red rather then black and like how it turned out.

Lap Quilt

My sister purchased two of these kits a year or two ago and asked me not long ago if I'd put them together for her. Here is the first of the two:
