So I decided to take a smocking class after hearing from people that do it that it is a lot of fun. Last week was my first week and we just practiced the different stitches and picked out our projects. I chose to do a light green bishop and I am smocking it in two colors of pink with a little green on the flower leaves. Tonight we actually got to start working on our projects so just a quick post of a before picture. I have a really long way to go. I'll post a picture of the final product when I'm done!
