Keeping busy

Working on a wool piece while LN has travel soccer practice.
Brought kindle, cross stitch and knitting too.
Just in case...

LN's been busy working on her 4-H fashion revue outfit. 

No shot of her in it just yet.
Vintage pattern in one size only equals a ton of alterations and headaches.
We are down to the wire now. Garments are due Monday by noon. 
Dress needs hem and 2 decorative buttons.
Coat needs more...
That's her coat with fancy lining above . We needed to remove 5" at her waistline to achieve the "look". That means she has sewn (and some resewn too) over 20 darts at this point.
Seems to fit better so lots of hand sewing and finishes to complete. 
She's has about 30 hours in it so far just by herself. That doesn't count her mentors help or my part.
Geeze ....
I love my kid. 


  1. That wool piece looks very nice and festive. I did some sewing in 4-H as a kid, but have not spent enough time to learn more of it. You daughter is very talented at such a young age.

    1. Thanks Kristina she really enjoys pushing her boundaries each time. I'm excited to get it finished and see her end product.
