Jane Pizar progress and some wedding photos.

 Jane is she is now! :)

The corners..

I really enjoyed making the pieced and appliqued circles. There will probably be a few more tiny pieces of applique around the circle.

I will be taking  a little break from Jane while I catch up with my Chester Criswell quilt blocks.

And a bit of showing off...just because I can! Lol

Two of my DD's friends got married recently. My DD made the bride's wedding gown.

Lots of silk chiffon draped over the bodice. There are covered buttons and a concealed zip down the back. Beaded French lace was appliqued around the hem.

I had a small part in helping to hand applique the lace ...

 ....and appliquing the lace around the edge of the veil. I used transparent thread to stitch the lace down.

My DD made her outfit too. She fell in love with a pair of shoes, then designed a dress to wear with them. She loves loops and covered buttons.

At the moment there is a beautiful perfume of citrus blossom in our back yard.
