This Blouse Will Be My Next Project!

I am going to start on this next week and if you want to follow along, I will post pictures as I go.  I am not exactly sure what kind of fabric this is.  It is a very stretchy knit that I found at JoAnns in the Red tag section.  Even marked down it was very pricey at $12.00 a yard.  I liked the little ruffles on it and I am hoping it has a slimming effect, not the other way around.  Sometimes you just never know what you will end up with when you sew!!  Here is a picture of the material and the pattern!  I am thinking about having the ruffle run up and down even though most of the stretch is in the other direction.  I think this way it will be more slimming.  Anyone have any other suggestions?

Another Blanket Finished

I have another blanket finished.  This is for my oldest granddaughter.  Only 4 more to go.  I want to get these finished because soon I will be wanting to work outside.  Our weather is still cold here, but  it should be warming up.  I am missing the sunshine!!
