Guess Who??!!!

I'm so sorry that I haven't blogged in over a year!! I have no excuse, but I hope to be better this year! I also didn't keep track of my charity work, but I'm pretty sure that I made my goal. But since I don't have proof, you will just have to take my word for it.

I have had several people ask for the pattern for the ripple bereavement gown. I tried to find the original pattern on the internet, but it is gone. I have a paper copy and would happily snail mail you a copy if you let me know. It is a precious and easy gown. The ribbons coming down near the armholes I added since I wasn't very crazy about the holes that were there from making the ripples. Did that make any sense?

I put all of my almost finished projects on the coffee table till they drive me crazy, then I finish weaving in the ends, and adding ribbons/charms, etc. So in the pile right now is about 5 bereavement gowns, 4 bereavement buntings and I am working on a teenage sized blanket for Project Linus.

I am feeling the quilting itch coming on. I am just learning how to quilt, and will probably just be a beginner quilter for the rest of my life, but that's what I'm comfortable doing, so it's OK with me. When I clear off the coffee table, I will bring out the sewing machine. Too bad that rascally work keeps getting in the way of my crafty productivity!!!

Well, hopefully it won't be a year till you'll hear from me again!!

Love to you all!
Ally

Don't forget to mail your old friend that pattern! It's good to hear from you. And good luck with the quilting... it is very addicting. :)
