Green sofa and dress

pattern source The Paper Pieced Home
I am a bit behind... know what I mean?
The Rainbow Scrap Challenge Folk have moved on to June's color and here I am finishing Greens.

Making decisions on the sofa, dress and TV were surprisingly hard this month.
I have a lot of stress at the moment, and that probably influences creativity. Still...
I  paper pieced the sofa,  I had to print out the pattern, cut it apart into sections and copy the sections in order to give myself seam allowances. 

Won't you come in and have a seat? Choose any color sofa you'd like... click on any picture to see details.
This time I'm serving limeade cool and tart in a tall glass, please use a coaster... what do you think of my dress???

I love the fabric on my simple summer frock!
Who doesn't love a polka dot? 
Why do they call dots polka dots? 
Do they dance across the surface? 

The little striped belt gives me a bit of a waist...but a person might need a stern foundation garment under such a tailored dress. Plus hose and heels, and a set of pearls. 

Want to see the others in my closet?


I absolutely must do the Aqua sofa and dress for June! RSC
Now the TV is under construction, so there will be no I love Lucy this week... looks like the travel show will be on.

  2. I think your PP dresses and sofas are just adorable; some days it's more difficult
    than others even with the same patterns--I think they're polka dots as my Polish relatives always danced around the Hall at weddings in a big circle--two by two...
    ?quien sabe?
    we are a bit stressed here too...
    I tore my big PS quilt in half ;000
    --last night--sick of hauling it through the machine--so now I have two smaller lap quilts -- one for each little grandgirl...

  13. With those required undergarments the only things that can jiggle are the polka dots! The sofa looks nice and comfy, ready to sink into and take a nap. Just what I need.
