Let the Smocking BEGIN....

Let the Smocking BEGIN....
    With two baby granddaughters born just last year,( two of our children's families), so excited to think that little smocked dresses will be once again in our future!   Our two daughters each grew up wearing Polly Flinders, but I am so excited that this generation of girls (our two granddaughters) will be wearing smocked dresses that are "made with Love and Prayer by Mimi" along with a Polly Flinders dress here and there.
     SAGA ~ A Smocking Guild, is holding a mystery smock-along to make a Christmas Ornament.  So far I have completed pleating 11 different fabrics, some are plain while others are printed, and all are from different fabric companies so they each have a different weave strength.  Some went through the pleater with great ease while others were a struggle to get off of the needles.
     Clue 1 to begin our smocking for our ornament was released Monday; let the stitching begin.
Here is the link if you would like to read about the smock along...
