Progress on McCall 789

Thank you everyone for the lovely, lovely comments on my blogiversary post!  You are all so wonderful!!

I wanted to show you a sneak peak of my progress on McCall 789:

Lauren from Tea and Crumpets suggested that I show a few of the stitches used for this pattern!  What  a great idea for a post this week! Thanks Lauren!  You can see part of the front of the house isn't finished.  This is what the transfer guide looks like.  I was very lucky to have bought this already transferred onto the grey linen and all the thread with it!  Plus, the previous owner had started in on the pattern.  YAY!  I hope to finish it up this week....it's so pretty.  I am loving it!

Oh, I also wanted to mention that I came across McCall 3638 which is the pattern I used to sew up my grey dress on ebay.   Unfortunately, there's only 4 hours left but NO ONE has bid on it and it's going for $1.99.  Check it out.  It's selling in a size 14 (B32).  Let me know if you end up winning it as I would love to see someone else's rendition of the pattern!


  1. Gorgeous! I'm looking forward to seeing it at all its splendor. When you are finished .. will be it a picture for the wall??

  2. Your embroidery looks wonderful! I can't wait to see the finished piece!

  3. Wow! I am so impressed by the detail - and by your patience in doing such fine work!!!!

  4. That is so cool.....I have just gotten into 1940's/50's design embroidery on clothing and linen, it's just so much fun!

  5. Oh, how lovely! I had almost forgotten that I used to do a bit of embroidery work back when I was a teenager. Hmmm, this might be a safer bet for me than scary buttonholes!

  6. Wow! I used to do embroidery --not as much lately. My mother made several of this type you're doing. Of course, we still have them! Your stitches are beautiful!

  7. That's looking so lovely! I'd love to see how you do the stitches, I might not ever make a piece like that but I'm curious how it's done :)


I read each and every comment--thank you so much!
