Oh My Dresdens!



I've received a handful of e-mails asking about Darlene's Darling, Delightful, Dazzling, Dramatic, Divine, Decadent, Desirable, Distinctively, Daring, Dear, Dandy, Dreamy, Devilishly, Definitely, Delectable, Decorous, Distinguished, Dainty, Dynamic, Dignified, Dissected, Delicious, Diabolically, Delicate, Dreadfully, Difficult, Dynamite, Downright, Dangerous, Deliver, Delightful, Dresdens, despite, daring Wabbits, dazed with delight!
(thank you so much for playing along with my silly alliteration game - YOU Rock!)




This project was love at first sight! I saw it on Anne's blog and knew it was ME.



The pattern is called Susan's Dresdens by Crabapple Hill Studio.




Piecing + applique + embroidery = bliss




(for a variety of reasons this project has taken serious persistence)


Here's a picture of the pieced dresdens (still need to applique them to the background fabric) and one embroidered block. I have 7 more to embroider but it should go quicker because I'm past the color selection angst I've been experiencing. :-) BTW, the small opening in the center of the pieced and embroidered dresdens will be covered with a yo-yo.




There's tons of details about this project I could share but you'd probably be bored. :-) If you have any specific questions please e-mail me directly.



I hope you're having a wonderful week end.



Please take a minute to hug a Veteran and remember those who died protecting our freedoms.




I plan to spend the rest of the day in my sewing room.



In Friendship!

Very impressive, this is going to be fabulous! Pattern should have been called Darlene's Dresdens instead of Susan's Dresdens, much better alliteration.
