Finally, I have finished 2 of the 10 table linens that I am making for family members. Very belated Christmas gifts. They are drying right now and I will post pics once they have been starched and ironed. I'm very pleased with how they have turned out. I only have 2 more to do the hand stitching on but each of them have more than 20 lace pieces to put together. It is very time consuming. I hope to finish my Christmas gifts by the end of the month. I have also worked on some mending for the guy who sold us our new van. The back vent to his winter jacket had a rip and it needs a button replaced. Then I worked on a pair of pants for me.

How exciting for you in preparing for your daughter's wedding. Sounds wonderful. Please post a pic of the dress when done.

Glad you are able to make progress on your lace gifts. I sure couldn't do all that hand sewing to put them together. I can't feel the needles/thread like I used to so it really is hard for me to do.
Skye do enjoy making all the things you have planned for your DDs wedding. I helped DD#2 make gifts for her guests and that took some time and patience.
I've been sewing preemie gowns and sleepers today. I've never attempted preemie sizes before and they sure take patience and I have to really watch what I'm doing putting on the cuffs and neckline binding. I found the patterns for free on line and printed them out this morning and got stitching this afternoon. The hospital has requested more preemie clothing for parents to take home since more preemies are being born lately.
