I though I'd write a catch up post today.
I was going to wait until Monday but in case the world ends tomorrow I would like to write a few things. (This is a very long post but you will be rewarded with a ruching tutorial at the end.)
My sister Katie had a birthday party for Teah (4) two Saturdays ago.
Kate lucked out as that was the only nice weekend we have had in Utah for months.

It's one of the momentous gifts of childhood and new phases.
I wanted my dad to make Freya a doll house last Christmas but I asked mid- November and there wasn't enough time.
The girls are getting them for their birthday's this year.
All of the girls in the family have summer birthdays which is fun.
Teah and Freya will have their own doll house and my brother Nicholas' four girls will share a house.
My dads own design.
I get my creativity and confidence to create from my dad.

It reminds me of Alice In Wonderland.
I love making these baguette rabbits because I have a use for all the funky linens I've collected over the years.
I thought I would do a small tutorial on how to ruche.
Ruched pink linen.
Set your sewing machine stitch length to the very longest.
Sew the length of both sides of fabric leaving very long tails.
Pull the tails to gather. Knot the ends when it is the proper length.
Gather the other side to match the top. Knot the ends.
Change your stitch length to sew the ruching.
Using the gathering stitch line, sew the ruching to project
