Thank you for your prayers, you are so kind. It never ceases to amaze me what a lot of goodness there is in the world.Bless you all.
I bought this pattern a little while ago, even though I may have muttered somrthing in the past about not never buying patterns again. It looked so sweet, just the thing to wear with a summer dress. Possibly I thought I might look 18 again like the model in the picture...
It turned out to be easier than I'd imagined , just a rectangle with a fancy edging sewn together under the arms.
The stitch was loose and open so it grew quickly. It turned out to be the comorting, mindless kind of stitching which is just right when you have heard bad news and are feeling rather sensitive. Comfort stitching I call it !
In just a few evenings,I had whizzed up this lovely little number. Perfect for wearing over something strappy, especially as summer is creeping in.
Now it is finished I am wishing I had made it a size smaller, I would have liked a closer fit. However I have realised the potential for making rectangles using other stitches and patterns with other edgings; as long as it joins under the arms it will work. It could be an interesting way to use African Flowers couldn't it !
