Travelers Rest, ...
I wanted to try my hand at smocking so I picked up a library book on it. I found that traditional smocking would be very time consuming without a pleater, but the book also described counterchange smocking. I decided to give it a try! Here’s the result.
Striped Cotton(?) inherited from my mother’s stash, embroidery floss, buttons, and an ancient Butterick Strawberry Shortcake pattern from my mother-in-laws stash.
