I promised to make a smocked dress for our guild's opportunity drawing in October. So far, so good. The problem is, in order to take publicity photos to sell the tickets, they want the items tonight. Umm, I just pleated the fabric last night. I may get some smocking stitches in before the meeting, but there won't be anything worthy of a picture.
This is such a pretty pattern, and I have the material, I don't know why it is taking me so long to get going on it.
I've been working on this:
This is my next temari, with 122 facets. In this picture I still had to tack down the 3-way intersections, but that is done now, and I started the stitching. This one is going to take a LONG time. I may even have to resort to in progress pictures to have something for people to look at.
(Plus I've been working on the rag rug. I really like how it is turning out.)
I think I need another day off.
