I have been creating since I was a little girl. I am happy to say that having my own website has opened up a whole new world for me. Trying new mediums is a joy and sometimes a real eye opener.
I sell what I create on etsy and my website, someplaceinthyme.
If you have questions,please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I welcome new blog friends and am honored if you find my little piece of heaven interesting enough to follow.
When our daughter was in kindergarten, I learned to smock. I loved it and thought smocked dresses were so cute. This was the first sundress I ever smocked.
What I learned on this dress was how to smock borders and create tiny flowers.
This is a close up, not perfect, but I was on my way. Our daughter is now in her early thirties and I have to tell you, she looked so sweet in this dress!!
My second attempt was another sundress, only this one has little mice across the front. I remember we used to get so many compliments on this dress when we were out.
The mice even have little whiskers. As I look back, I have to ask myself, "how did I ever do this?"
Moving on to something a little harder, I tried my hand at sheep......so cute, oh why do they grow up so fast?! :)
I can remember making this, but I can't remember HOW.
It doesn't look that hard does it? Little sheep with tiny yellow flowers....
Every little girl loves butterflies, so here they are.
This pattern was loved by all and I don't think it was hard to do.
Kirstin's Easter dress and my first attempt at sleeves.
This so cute pattern begins with an egg and progresses until you have a sweet chick!!! Now tell me, how cute is this??!!
This was the last dress I ever smocked. It was Kirstin's Christmas dress. She used to wear red or green under the dress and it was adorable on her. This dress has a Santa and his reindeer.
The top and the bottom border are little green Christmas trees. I kept these dresses all this time thinking that I would pass them on to my grand daughters. As faith would have it, Kirstin has twin boys!!!!!
Luckily for me, our son and daughter in law have two girls, so, I cleaned the dresses and ironed them, and passed them on to two very lucky little ladies.....
Now, if only I could remember how and what I did back then, I would love to create more.
