Christening Gown Pics

I leave for Jackson Hole this afternoon so I dumped my SD card last night to have room in my camera. Here are the pictures of the finished stitching and the Christening Gown finished as a gown. I started the stitching January 17th and finished it March 13th. I don’t usually use the large size photos but I feel it’s necessary for this one; just click on the picture to see it larger:

I have been working on Chatelaine’s Alpine Seasons since I finished the gown; here is my progress through part 5:

I started Just Nan’s Tulip Time for Laura’s quilt last night; I’m taking it on the trip and I’m taking another piece of fabric for it so I can stitch it for myself on linen once I finish hers.

Well, that’s all I have time to post. I’ll write again once I’m home from skiing!
