“Lemonade” Smocking & News

HAPPY MONDAY, Everyone, I hope you have had a great weekend! I had a blessed one even though it was a bit hectic.

“Lemonade” Quilts are quilts made with either a pink or yellow color scheme. I thought I would show you the 95% finished smocking on my dotted Swiss “Pink & Yellow Lemonade” daygown ( I won’t be able to add the boullion roses until the gown is constructed):

I didn’t have much trouble with smocking through the dotted Swiss even though I didn’t remove the dots from the smocking area, except for when the needle had to go right through a “dot”. But as long as I kept my needle perpendicular to the pleat, and push a little harder, I didn’t have any problems:


The daygown should look like this after construction (hopefully!):
