Same pattern, same white knit fabric. This time I added in some long sleeves from some stretch lace. I do not remember where I bought the white knit fabric and I'm down to bits after these 2 T's. The lace I bought several years ago from Hancocks. I used the Viking 960Q, and mostly did Jalie's zig zag overlock type stitch, and the 1/4 inch seam method. I used the small step zz that the 960Q has for the hems. I tried a bunch of the hem finishes on scraps of fabric but they were just too heavy for this knit.

This bird and my dog are not getting along. We found out yesterday she has a baby that is big, but still can not fly yet. Since we have been calling the dog away from her bush, she has allowed us to be in our backyard. We've been copying Rick and Betty (Betty's Kitchen on You Tube) for a little raised garden. It's been lots of fun.
This year we have a tremendous amount of squirrels, birds, rabbits, and bug life in our neighborhood.

I'm still here. I've been so busy. School is out for the older 2. One moved back home last fall and went back to college. I've got 2 kids with college degrees. One is going back for more, and the other is going back, but meandering. There are lots of classes now in computers and languages that interest him. A little sewing, but nothing reviewed. I wanted to show you some pictures. These are several months old and ARE OUTDATED.
One more month and high school will be out, and then summer vacation. I am looking forward to that.
