The First Big Try

Why is it that you always enjoy reading others' blogs but never think that yours would be interesting? I have all of these ideas in my head but trying to get them out of there is the problem. Somewhere in the space between this screen and my head, those thoughts get jumbled and well...turn out like this. Anyway, I'm giving this a try.

These booties are my latest project.

I made them to match a dress that I was commissioned to do for a sweet lady in Wales. My Etsy friend, Ginger, of Huckleberry Baby made the most beautiful quilt from this fabric and then asked me to make a matching dress and booties. It was a lot easier than I thought it would be but dresses take me so long that I don't enjoy making them unless they are for my daughter and I can see them day in and day out either hanging in her closet or on her little body. I get attached to my projects and it was hard sending this set off to it's new home across the Atlantic. I've got the pictures though and that keeps me inspired to do more.
