(Oh, look–I still have a blog.)
This is another old sewing project of mine that’s getting fresh use on Hazel:
I did have one problem with this over-sized honeycomb smocking, which was that the pearl cotton thread was too large and made holes in the fabric. So this top has had to have several repairs over the years. Now it is holding up pretty well, though, and I’d love to try this technique again with slightly smaller thread and spacing.
As you can see, it’s been a rough week for Hazel, or anyway for Hazel’s face. The scrape on the bridge of her nose, her skinned forehead, skinned nose, and sore thumb were acquired in three separate incidents. (Maybe that will teach her not to get out of the house and enjoy the beautiful spring weather.)
