Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to you. Yesterday we hosted a baby shower for soon-to-be-mom, my daughter Jenny. We didn't purposely choose Mother's Day weekend for this, but it was so appropriate. Little Gianna will be born in July.

So blogging has taken a back seat to a lot of other things lately; but now that the shower is over, I'm ready to get back into the sewing room and start finishing up projects. But over morning coffee today and catching up on blogs, I see that Dresden plates are starting to be the new rage. I know better than to start one more thing; but my mom made a miniature Dresden wallhanging years ago, and I loved it. I don't know what's happened to the pattern, but the little hanging is in her room at the nursing home; and I get itchy fingers every time I see it.

The Galloping Pony blog has a pattern for a freebie; and while I don't plan to make the door hanger, I do want to make the little Dresden. I think if I make just one, I'll get this new project out of my system. Yeah, I've said that before! Here's the link.
