A Little Show and Tell

While my mom has been busy with the quilt show, I have been piddling around here. I've had these pillows I wanted to cover for nearly a year. Do you ever do that, think you will get to a project and put it of again and agin?

Here they are. I bought canvas drop cloths to use as curtains and then I changed my mind about the curtains. What do you think?

Here is a sneak peak at JayLee's Easter dress. It is the first time I've made her Easter dress and it is turning out so cute! I'm using a ModKid pattern.

The frustrating thing is that it would have been done by now but I ran out of ric rac. Not a problem for most people right? They can just run to the store and buy some. Not me. We have a small fabric store in town but they annoyingly never have what you need. I went in for white ric and rac and the lady tried to get me bias binding. So after I showed her what ric rac was (sigh)she informed me they didn't have white. Thanks alot.

My next option would be the Wal-Mart which is a 45 minute drive one way. And since we order ric rac on the spool, you usually can't find it the right size. So what do I do? I call my mom and ask her to ship it to me. It should be here today and I can finish it up. I'll get pictures up when it is done.

Thanks for listening to me rant. I do love living in the middle of nowhere surrounded by small towns but sometimes (crafting time) it sucks.
