Dear Summer,

Please stay through August, I have a new top to share with you! Yes, it's the smocked dress from Weekend Sewing adapted for me. I used a bit of my stash of Katie Jump Rope by Denyse Schmidt. I was fun to make ( thanks for the tips Jennifer), it's comfortable and I really like it.

I finally finished binding this quilt. I started it only 5 months ago. After sewing on the binding on, it took 7 more hours to complete the hand sewing. I timed it. I used a free pattern from AMH and the fabric line, Metro Blue Goes Green.

I really liked sleeping under it last night.

More later.

Oh! I love the top! I was going to make one out of that same exact fabric! But when i made the muslin version for myself... (let's just say that no one wants to see me strolling around in it...). I love the quilt as well!

Do you care that this top has ended our friendship? I can no longer talk to you (except in this comment, and then it's over). I'm jealous. My top is sitting on a shelf staring at me unfinished. You finished yours before me, WAAAIILLLLL!!!! SOB!! And yours looks sooo flippin, stinkn cute on you! I cannot follow this act:( I will look like a dumpy pig when I wear mine, if I ever finish mine. How did you get yours too look so good? If I was talking to you I'd ask your help...but alas...I'm not..anymore..after this..
