More Dress Progress

 
The plan to use lace at the neckline was abandoned and I added piping instead.  Because the fabric is cut on the diagonal, I am now dangerously close to have very little left to play with, so let's hope all goes well.  I cut the bonnet fabric so that should be all set.
 
I hand sewed in the sleeves today and will machine stitch them in later, but it's looking good.
 
 
I'm done for today.  Buttonholes next, then the skirt.  Life better not get in my way:)
 
I wanted to say Thank You again to Elizabeth of Sand and Sunshine  http://sandandsunshine.blogspot.co.uk/ for the having us over to her place yesterday for the Christmas QAL.  Elizabeth has informed me that I'm the lucky winner of the pincushion, so that makes my day.  I don't use just one pincushion because I sew all over the house so I can certainly use another.  Thanks, Elizabeth.
 
 I made so much progress on this project because we have this QAL so a big Thank You to Sue of Quilt Times  http://quilttimes.blogspot.com also for starting this up some 3 years ago.  Some day I'm going to go back and count up all of the things I've made during our second Saturdays just so I can amaze myself.  It's alot.  Thanks Sue.
 
God Bless You.

This dress is really looking cute.

As to counting up everything made during 3 years of QALs, that's given me an idea. Hmm, off to have a think....
