Moving Slow, Moving Along

Do you remember this photo???

I took this photo before leaving for Florida an entire month ago!  Prior to leaving, I spent the week sewing dresses with the hope that I could knit the sweaters while away from my studio, which I did, but the finishing up seems to be taking forever; I am finding that it is hard to get back into the flow and feel of creating.

Today I am finally starting on the completion of the last ensemble.  My hope is that when Gina’s ensemble is finished I will be able to get back in the groove.

Here are the other four finished ensembles (in case you missed them).  Alice is modeling the green floral ensemble called “Flower Picking”.  Alice arrived days after I returned home.  (I actually got notice from Nelly that Alice was complete somewhere on interstate 75 in Georgia.)  Lucy graciously let her new sister model this ensemble.  This outfit was purchased by Cara’s mom.  Cara’s photo is on my Facebook page here.

Gracie’s ensemble called “Rose Trellis” was just completed late last week.

Here is Patsy’s “Bitsy Blossoms”.  It was purchased for Ann Estelle, but Bitty Bethany snatched it and doesn’t seem to want to take it off.  You can see my customer’s photo on my Facebook page here also.

And, just completed is Millie’s “Cutie in the Garden” ensemble.  Millie’s ensemble is still available on my website here.

This is the progress on Gina’s ensemble so far.  I made a quick drawing of the embroidery design; we’ll see how closely I actually stick to the preliminary design.  I have the embroidery thread colors all picked out and ready to go, so this is my project for the day.

I wish you all a lovely day!  Bye for now.
