Day Off #2

I sewed my DIL's purple dress today. My first time working with a heavy silk. I'm not a fan of the fabric, but I'm happy with the dress.

Here she is modeling the dress and trying to show off baby.
The dress hides baby well, don't you think so?
I finished the Love block from Gail Pan's Christmas Wish BOM. It was a fun block to stitch. I haven't chosen my background fabrics yet. I may wait until the next one or two blocks are posted to choose the fabrics.
DH and I are going to Providence, RI this weekend to celebrate 10 years being together. On the way home on Sunday night we are going to Showcase Live at Patriot Place to see Big Bad Voodoo Daddy.

See you on Monday!
Sweet P

I downloaded Gail's block too! Your's came out great. I need to hit the quilt shop for some backround fabric so I can work on mine this weekend.
