As I mentioned in my latest post, the creative juices are flowing!
Above you see the front panel of the latest dress that I am sewing. I've made this one before (see left) but with a different neckline and all in one fabric. I've found myself wearing it all the time and have received nice words about it, so I decided to make another one. (I usually don't sew the same thing twice)
I want to add something to break up the front panel, a button, a brooch or something, but haven't quite made up my mind yet...

I'm also working on a knitted top-down raglan cardigan. This means that you start knitting at the collar and then work your way down to the waist. This way you can sort of try it on as you go along. I'm almost at the point where the sleeves will meet underneath the arm. I'm trying to mimic this kind of lace effect (see below) at the bottom part. We'll see how that goes, but I really like the simple lines formed this way...

Well, we are enjoying Spring Break here which means that both the husband as well as the daughter are at home with me. The weather isn't fab but we will find things to do. The garden is a priority at the moment (I think the potatoes will get planted today!) so get ready for some mucking about! <wink>
