We have a family reunion every Labor Day Weekend and it is a blast. We also have a raffle for homemade items, and in the past I have always made something up really quick a few days before we go to the reunion. The entire time I am making something, I think "If I had a few more days I could make this and this, which would be so fun and cute, but since I procrastinated, this will have to do." So, I am working on a few projects for the reunion, EARLY!
I cut all my Cotton Blossoms into 9 inch squares.
She picked her favorite one and I sewed it up and added a brown border. Wallah, the top is finished. Now, I just need to really finish it! I love piecing tops, but I don't like finishing them as much as I should!
For our reunion raffle I am also going to make a few of these cuties, and if I can find some more fun fun fabric, I will make another one of these sassy little things! I always have the desire to make some fun things for our reunion, but usually that desire is the week before Labor Day and I am scrambling to get something made. This year, I am planning ahead!
I also started another Civil War gown for Emmitt last night. It is funny how fast a little one can go together; I just wish one for me would be that quick and easy! When we were in Helper for the Abraham Lincoln celebration, a lady said to me "You were at Camp Floyd weren't you? I recognize your little boy and his dress." So I decided since Emmitt has only been to 2 events and he is already recognized, it is time for a new dress!
