Floss tag exchange

Floss tag exchange

Ok So Georgie recieved my floss tag exchange (I am on The Hooked on Exchanging blog) and she got it pretty fast. I posted it on the mail out date of the 3rd and she posted here on the 10th. She is in Australia people!

I did a Debbie Draper designs freebie called Hearts Desire, with Dinky dyes silk over 1 on 28 even weave. I was pretty happy with it. I think I used too thick batting in it though, I had a heck of a time getting the eyelet in. I may do this again, but honestly I don't use rings alot...I think I would rather have a scissor fob. I am still (im)patiently waiting for my tag to arrive.

The holiday dress is almost done. I hemmed it and will be attatching a zipper tonight (I found my machine's zipper foot...that's good). And when I was at Hobby Lobby I took another good look at the model...they used a zipper not available at the store...and attached side loops for the ribbons sash (not in the pattern, hmph). I still have to get stockings and shoes to match!
