Pink Roses in My Work Room.

Even on my messy work table the Pink Roses stand out.  
I am in the throes of preparing for the classes I am teaching at SAGA National Convention in Anaheim, California.  It will be great fun for everyone.  You can come too.

I need my dress in front of me for reference as I get my samples together and go over my class outline.  
There's alot to do.  And this is a two day class  which means there is two days worth of preparing.  But I love two day classes.  They are more relaxed and conducive to learning for students.

This particular Lace/Embroidery design is not in the pattern, it's part of the class.
If any of my students are reading this post....the pattern you need is Old Fashioned Baby Daydresses.    If you call me, I can bring one to Convention for you.  It can be the older version of Daydresses or the Revised that is on my website.  We will be using View 1, Small.

We will be Hemstitching. (notice the pink Roses!)
Very Old Fashioned Baby!

Hemstitching on the Sleeve is a very pretty touch.
And more Pink Roses.

But nowhere as lovely as the REAL thing!

This Rose is called Katy Road Pink or Carefree Beauty.  It does look pretty happy and carefree, doesn't it?

And Levi the cat is lurking about.

Don't you think he looks a little arrogant?

He is!

This is my Pink Saturday post.

Hi Jeannie,
I have the older version of the pattern. Which view will we make? I'd like to trace it out on interfacing before the Convention.

Love the dress, the roses and the beautiful Levi! I have had two "tuxedo" cats and they have wonderful dispositions, but they can look quite arrogant, too.

Love the dress with all the little pretty pink roses... and aren't all cats arrogant? I think they believe themselves smarter than us and we are here to do their bidding! But we love them just the same!

Jeannie, that dress is so lovely that it hurts my eyes! If they made "pretty shades" like sunglasses, I would need double strength for this dress. It makes me sigh....

Jeannie, this dress is so lovely that it hurts my eyes. If there is such a thing as "pretty shades," like sunglasses, I need some to look at this dress. It just makes me sigh.
