Today, I pulled out my old pleater, got a fat quarter, and pleated it! OK, not such a fantastic accomplishment, and after looking at maggiebsmocks blog, I think I did it backwards. But, it's still pleated, and I need some practice. I'll be dusting off my old instruction books and working on the stitches this weekend. I haven't smocked since Laura was about 7 or 8 (and while it was a really cute dress, I don't think she ever wore it). She's now 20, so yeah, it's been awhile.

I have an idea for a easy, cute sundress that shouldn't take a long time to make. Just need to get the basics down for now.

I also decided to go for a new banner and avatar for my shop, and am having an ad made for the project wonderful advertising. Stay tuned for that...

LOL, I was just going over my bookmark list, clicked on your link and voila`! saw my name! Thank you for visiting my blog.
Good for you digging out that old pleater!
Honestly, there is no 'wrong way' to pleating, just different ways to skin the cat.
If you have questions, please ask!
Now get smocking!
