Accountability is good too, which is why I am posting my goals for the world to see.
Most of the things I want to finish are works in progress just sitting around in my sewing room. I have a sinking feeling if I don't finish them now, before baby #3 rocks our world, they will be worn by my grandchildren and not my own children. Ha!
(2) Smocked insert top/ruffled knee-length bloomers for Claire. I love this pink and green together. It screams summer! I just learned how to picture smock in a class I took earlier this month and I am currently obsessed. Plus, it gives me something to do while I sit around and watch TV at night, which is about all I have the energy to do right now.
I have finished smocking the snail since I took this picture. Like I said, I'm currently obsessed. If you want to smock, but think it is too time consuming, do a small picture window insert instead of the full insert. I only had to smock one snail.
(3) Smocked picture window romper for David. I made this outfit in a class last fall. It's a 2T so I knew David wouldn't wear it until end of this summer, early fall. I smocked the insert in the picture smocking class I took. The outfit still needs a finished collar, sleeves and sides/legs sewn up. The hard part, the smocking, is finished though. (As Martha Stewart would say, that is a "good thing".)
(4) Ava top and skirt for Claire. Isn't this fabric just gorgeous? I think so. I may need to make something for myself out of it! The white fabric is kind of sheer and has white on white stripes in it. Do you think they make this pattern in adult size? They should.
(5) This will be a short romper. How old does that pattern look? Believe it or not, it's still in print! I smoked this insert in September 2008 when we drove to Orlando. Oh my word ... it's about time I did something with it. I hope to make this into a 2T (I can't remember what size I blocked the insert) and it will probably be saved for the baby to grow into since David has more clothes than he needs right now. I might let him model it for you when it is finished though.
