My Mountain

The change of season never fails to take my breath away in this beautiful wild place.  I'm lucky enough to be able to walk out my back door and be here in less than eight minutes.

Favorite all time quote -
" Run the mile you are in"

This is a little look at the project I'm working on to teach at Farmhouse Fabrics in 2013.  The lacy underdress/slip has lots of Swiss and French laces, 1/8" tucks, and a tucked netting collar.  All the things that make my heart go pitter patter.  The smocked jumper which can be worn over the underdress should be ready by next week.  Stay tuned.


  1. So beautiful! Both the fall colors and the underdress. Can't wait to see the jumper. Farmhouse Fabrics is so far away. Do you ever teach in Utah?

  2. Your mountain is just beautiful! The dress is gorgeous also!

  3. Sometimes it's the fact that you are running, not walking and just making the attempt. You are a winner in my book, a total inspiration. I love the underdress. Can't wait to see the finished product.

  4. Oh my goodness - such beauty in nature and this dress. I am signed up for FF - the box can't wait to get this one!

  5. Gorgeous!! Can't wait for class to start!! I finished my dress from June, can we start class next week!! ): You know us FHF addicts, always ready fora new project!!

  6. Oh my goodness, so gorgeous! I'd love to make this as a baptism dress for my little girl. Will you be selling the pattern someday? I'm in Utah and unfortunately traveling to Farmhouse Fabrics wouldn't be possible (but such a dream!).

  7. Oh, Gail, it is beautiful! Good to see you in Atlanta if only for a minute. Debbie
