Another finished project-up cycled skirt

This project has been nesting in my mind for quite a long time and finally yesterday I did it.
Thing always look harder than they are actually.It took me less than an hour to do it stitching by hand.I didn't even need to take my sewing machine out.
So, the dress was size 6, already
small but as the waist line was high the skirt part was long enough to be worn separately.I cut the top off leaving a couple inches for sewing.
I measured the elastic and hand stitched it together. Then I put it around the waist line wrapped the extra fabric from the top around it and hand stitched it.It turned out perfect and she loved it swirling and twirling in her new/old skirt.

Little treasure

Last weekend we went garage saling for a while and see what I found.Just for three dollars!Can you believe that?I almost choked when I saw the price.Such a beauty for three dollars?
I did not ask questions.I don't know who made this beautiful afghan and why,if it is vintage or not.It looks new to me and having in mind how much time the maker or the artist I would say,invested in it,it it really very valuable to me.
My daughter fell in love with it and insisted to sleep with it every night.
I myself was planning on making one and I will but I know it will take a looooooong time.
