Show and Tell Friday (11/2)

Welcome to "Show and Tell Friday!" Do you have a something special to share with us? It could be a trinket from grade school, a piece of jewelry, an antique find. Your show and tell can be old or new. Use your imagination and dig through those old boxes in your closet if you have to! Feel free to share pictures and if there's a story behind your special something, that's even better!

I showed this project earlier in the week, but I also wanted to feature it for Show and Tell today. This is a dress I finished for Sweet E last weekend. I am really happy with how it turned out. You can see more pictures in this post.

She looks so cute, Melanie! You did a great job! I really need to improve my sewing skills, I've never tried to sew cloths so far but I should... ;-))

My today's S&T is about a sewing project, too! You are more than welcome to come along and have a look!

Best wishes from Germany, Anita

Hi Melanie :) How creative you are! I love the dress - there is just nothing like dresses on our girls, is there? My Miss M has been in an all dresses phase since she was old enough to talk - just always wants to wear them - and it is fun! Your darling girl is lovely. Blessings! Q
