Next Tank Top Dress

This is my next Tank Top Dress for Chloe.  Every time I make one of these I learn something new and hopefully get better every time.

I received an email from Corey's Blog at Little Miss Shabby and she asked the question about being in a Slump.

I answered here with this rather long comment,

Dear Corey,
I am very familiar with this feeling, in fact I have just emerged out of a slump that lasted nearly 6 months.  I couldn't stand to even go into the craft room sometimes.  I would get something out to do, and stare at it as if it was alien, (which it was at the time).  Absolutely nothing could gain my interest, I was so bad I just read books lots and lots of them.  But a friend of mine said God has a reason for this happening, just wait, trust in Him and accept whatever comes from His hand.  You know, I never did find out why I was in that slump, but I can happily tell you that I am sewing again.  I am making Christmas presents for family and friends.  Have finished 2 aprons, and 2 Tank top dresses and actually have orders for 2 more Tank Top dresses, and an opportunity to serve God by teaching the Sunday School class how to make some earrings or a bracelet to go into a box they have made with mirrored ceramics for their Mums for Christmas.  God is so good.
I have posted one of the Tank Top Dresses I have made, and one of the Aprons, and have thoroughly enjoyed every minute spent on them.

Have finished the Aprons.  I made two the same, but only one has a pocket.  Enjoy!  Just don't look at the body modelling it.

Girl's Tank Top Dress

Here is my first Tank Top Dress, hope you like it.

Flowers in my Garden

I took some photos of Flowers in my garden, (and a pot plant).  Hope you enjoy them.

Girl's Tank Top Dress and Apron

I have made some inroads on both of these items.  All that is left of the Apron is the pocket to be added.  The tank top dress is ready to be gathered then sewn onto the tank top.  I can't believe myself, it is great.  I am also adding butterfly sleeves to the tank top to make it even prettier.  As soon as both are finished I will take of photo and upload them.
Bye for now
