The Victorian Smockers use My Blog Lessons!!


The Victorian Smockers SAGA Guild is doing the Post for my Blog  today!!

I received this note along with the pictures!!!
Hi Jeannie,
The Victorian Smockers SAGA chapter in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida met today to start a three month daygown project.  We are using the tutorial from your blog to follow along with the instructions and learn some Old Fashioned Baby techniques.  Pat printed the blog directions through lesson 4.  That is what we worked on today. We will use our next two monthly meetings to work on the Priscilla Daygown and hopefully will have lots of little pretties to show you. We all agree that your tutorial is wonderful and we can't wait for the next meeting.  Hope you enjoy the photos.  See you next month.  Oh, and thanks for the beeswax you sent along with the patterns.                                    
  Warm regards,  Susan Van Houten

Although I really like my pattern Baby weights, I must say, using pretty  Stirling Silver Spoons is very classy!  
Susan is doing a great job!  Cutting outside the black lines!!
Susan and Pat are following the Priscilla Blog Lessons.
I can't help but notice the beautiful quilts in the background.  Very nice sewing environment!
I think she has marked her fabric and is ready to sew!
Beverly is already sewing!  She is going to have a hard time playing by the rules.  I can tell she wants to finish it before next month!
I like the cute print Beverly is using.

I am so excited that the Victorian Smockers are using my Blog Lessons.  And what fun for them  to get together to stitch. Everything is better when done with a friend.   I can't wait until they send me more pictures next month.  I better get that slip Lesson posted.  They will need a slip to go with their daygowns!!

Hi. I just recently finished a bishop in the same print Beverly is using for her daygown. The fabric is available through Farmhouse Fabrics SKU #Laura Blue. It is quite lovely and premiumed priced at $19 yd (60") but oh so very special!
