With a new beginning to the year, sometimes I am encouraged to clean up what has been sitting around for awhile. I decided to get out the sewing machine and finish up this project. I am adding lace to a plain white blouse. I sewed some by machine, and some by hand. I plan to dye it, and I feel sure that the lace will take the dye differently than the fabric. Haven't decided on a color yet, but it just might be purple. I want to start a new project on my "missy" form, so I had to finish this one. Be sure to stop by Julie's site and see how others are starting off the new year.

Ooh, Pat, I love that idea. The lace completely changes the look of the shirt and I really love the idea of it being purple!!! I'm really into that colour at he moment :-)
Wishing you fun, laughter and crafting mayhem in 2014!

Hi Pat, I am so envious of your beautiful sewing. I bought a machine a couple of years ago and have hardly used it.

Hope your new year has started well. Sue 63
