Mama has been smocking for 30 years. She would always make us the most ADORABLE clothes when we were little (we still have them :)). Looking back through them just makes you smile.
Yesterday, Mama taught Susan Liana, me, Caroline, and Anna (friends from church) how to smock. I was excited! It turns out so cute! When I started, I planned it to be a baby dress for the first sibling who had a little girl. Now, I have changed my mind. I think my own little girl would look really cute in it some day. :)
Looky, looky! Isn't it fun! I can't wait to smock for nieces and nephews...

We made a good start in our instruction, and I'm looking forward to learning more stitches at our next lesson. In the meantime, it'll be such fun to work on my smocking sampler!
