This little redwork piece has turned out even sweeter than I hoped. It took a couple of tries to get the binding on right, especially since I have never actually done anything with binding before. I brashly thought I'd be able to just figure it out, but three quarters of the way around it was pretty obvious I had no idea how to mitre corners. One quick trip to Youtube later, it was all under control. The finishing touch - the stick for the hanger - was collected from under a tree while walking from school to the car this afternoon.
Today I also hemmed and buttonholed Samara's new dress. It's a little loose around the bodice (room to grow over the summer is my excuse), but easily remedied with a t-shirt underneath. She can't wait to wear it for Grandma's birthday tomorrow.
Of course, I can't photograph anything without Josh appearing for his big moment in front of the camera. Cheese!
