There have been a few exciting things happening around here.
I was thrilled to win another giveaway! Since hubby has banned me from on-line shopping for a while then these things are especially a blessing and very special! Ha ha.
Can you imagine my excitement when I decided to give shirring another go and it worked?
Oh my goodness. I had tried this about 2yrs ago and I could not for the life of me figure out why it would never work. Then, the other day I read a post about it on Jelly Baby Blog and watched the Threadbanger video on how to make a summer dress.
It looked sooooo easy. So I decided to give it another whirl. This time I did thread the elastic thread in the thread tension thing in the bobbin case. I started sewing and voila!! I was shirring with excitement in no time. It's a bit late to make a shirred maternity top since I don't have long to go. Perhaps a nice shirred summer top instead. Something to think about.
Of course, I had to show *hubby* the end result. He was pretty happy too which makes me happy. This is just my prototype. It's some left over cotton print that I made shorts with previously. It's now Little Miss's home pj top. It's very sheer so great for warmer weather.
I know you want to see my belly progress, right? 36wks, 5 days... 23days to go.
Can't wait. Very clucky.
