My life is absolutely wonderful but SO busy!Â These new puppies chew up a lot of time… and a lot of everything else.!Â They are adorable and we are crazy about them.Â But they are one of the big reasons it’s been so long since I’ve posted.
At this late date I am starting on Easter dresses for 4 yo granddaughter Vivian Rose.Â One, of course, is for Easter Sunday.Â The other is for the church egg hunt on Sat.Â But that is on the back burner until Sunday’s dress is finished.
For several years I have had a piece of what must have been an exquisite tablecloth featuring cherubs and roses.Â You probably figured out that roses are a bonus for anything I make for Vivi.
I’m thankful that someone had the foresight to save the remnants.Â From the first time I saw it, I imagined one of those cherub medallions in a granddaughter’s dress.Â Â Finally, the time has come.
The plan is to modify a bishop with several inches removed from the front.Â That would leave a flat area on the Swiss voile for the single cherub.Â As you can see, it is already pinstitched to the voile.Â I love love love pinstitch and use it whenever possible.Â This time a #100 needle was used instead of a wing for fear that a wing would cut through the dense portions of the lace.
