Stitching Fun!

Yes, another fun day stitching with my friend at her house!!  Daygowns of course!!   I had the new designs ready and first we chose fabric and lace.  I am making mine with Ultra Batiste again.  I am really liking it and don't want to use Swiss Batiste until I am sure of the Design.  I plan to trim the neck with blue Entredeux (From Capitol Imports) and a Baby Lace Edging.
Friend chose a nice Lawn which is a little  more sturdy.  She will have pink entredeux at the neck and a pretty baby lace to trim it.
Speedy Friend also cut out a pink Daygown to make as well.  She will have both done before I finish my one gown!  I was taking pictures and she had her first gown cut out.
This is her drawer of Feet for her machine.  I so admire this drawer!!
Her Feet are in number order and she knows right where they are!!
Imagine!
I went home and took a picture of MY drawer.  Now, I have more feet put away but these are the ones I use all the time. Hmmmm....

Seeing your clothing makes me want to start some of this type more and more. We do need more baby clothing in our shop.

What a fun post, Jeannie! My whole sewing room is more like your drawer there... I shall never be hard on myself again, knowing that the queen of heirloom sewing has a rather dis-organized drawer!!! ;)
