Sunday Best



"Sunday Best," a wallhanging for Caroline's room was finished last night. The project was a kit that I bought at the Lancaster show from Cottonseed Glory. The dresses are all hand-buttonholed. The miniscule buttons came from another stand at the show. They were irresistible. Click for close-up if desired.

This is my second completion in the Finish Five challenge. Three more to go.

Just so you don't think me some sort of over-achiever, I have to be finished by July 23 rather than July 31, because we leave for vacation on July 24.

Very cute. The colors are just wonderful. The little buttons are very hard to see.

My sister is doing the same quilt with fabrics that she used when making her daughter's dresses. (My niece is nearly 23 and my sister has been saving fabric scraps all these years!)

I desired to click for a close-up. Your work is simple divine and those buttons are scrumptous!

...and I do think you're an over-achiever but I'm hoping it'll rub off on me if I hang around long enough.
