Could it be. . . . .

. . . . yes it could. . . . this is Jaden blocking! And you all thought I hadn't been knitting, ha :-)

Remember I am making mine with short sleeves, well I only have one sleeve to knit. I did the first one in about a day, so I think I am only a day or so away from trying on this cute little number - so stay tuned!

Sewing news - thank you all for your kind comments, ya really know how to make a gal feel good. I have to say though, I am not a complete novice when it comes to sewing. I feel like I led some of you to believe I've never sewn before. That's not true because I've owned a sewing machine for quite some years, but I've only ever really used it to sew up straight sides to make curtains and cushions. So I still feel like a very beginner when it comes to making clothes, and it still has to be a very basic and simple pattern for me to even want to give it a try. I must say I am enjoying surfing new 'sewing' blogs and seeing all the lovely things that are being made. It's inspiring to say the least.

Your Jaden looks so pretty already. I love the soft shade of pink that you chose.

It's so pretty. I can't wait to see how you do the sleeves. Maybe it's just because it's hot around here now, but I think I'd get a lot more use out of a short sleeve version.

Jaden is looking great - can't wait to see it finished! Glad you are liking the whole sewing thing. If you haven't been there yet, check out patternreview.com. That site is a wealth of knowledge about all things sewing, esp. fashion sewing.
