A Little 'Catch-Up" and a "Tease" or Two

I Will Be a Guest Blogger!

Jenn at has asked me to do a guest spot on her blog series featuring Lost Arts of Sewing. What an honor!  Even with all the end of the year activities and events at school and for my graduating son, I couldn't refuse!  This will be my first guest spot on another blog!  I knew that I wanted to do something with smocking but I chose an old technique that doesn't require a pleater.  In this way those of you who have thought you might like to try this needle art will need nothing except needle and thread. The series starts on Monday, May 20th.  My post will air on on Friday, May 24th.  I hope you will check out my post and all the guest bloggers for the series.
 We spent Mothers' Day at Busch Gardens in Tampa this year.  Lots of fun but it was pretty hot.  My sweet husband took the picture above.  Logan rarely enjoys having his photo taken...can you tell?   He will graduate from high school in just a couple of weeks.  Victoria-Rose has finished her first year of college and is now home for the summer.  Yay!  She's home!

Aren't these topiary butterflies amazing?!  I could walk around Busch Gardens and just enjoy the flowers!
The embroidered heart is on the bodice of the First Communion dress I finished recently for sweet Grace. I know that this is just a 'tease' and  I'll blog about that soon, I promise.   I have to complete and send the guest post to Jenn ASAP.  Here is the little 'tease' of the garment made for the guest post.
Have fun and take a little time for yourselves.  Today is the only May 18, 2013 we will ever have!  Enjoy!


  1. I can't wait to see your lost art! So exciting!!

  2. Your teases are killing me! That embroidered heart is so lovely it hurts my eyes. I can't wait to see the dress itself. And waiting for your guest blog post makes me antsy! Tick tock tick tock........

  3. Those topiary butterflies... I love them! I'm looking forward to seeing your creations. =)
