Have to recreate a skating dress

Jenna is in a beginner synchronized skating team and is so much taller than her team mates. So of course it stands to reason their costume department does not have a dress to fit 5' 9" Jenna so. Oma is coming to the rescue and helping us recreate the dress. The only part I was not able to match was the silver/black part around the bodice and the neck so I bought silver fabric.

Will post a photo of Jenna in her dress when it has been completed but here is the dress we have to recreate. She'll look just fabulous in her made to measure dress. Thanks so much Oma.

Its all about quick projects

My life is a little complicated right now so its all about quick projects I can do without too much thought. I saw an interlocking ring granny square on Pinterest and tried my hand with Bernat's Pink Ribbon cotton handcraft yarn. I did the original granny square and then added 2 more circles for another look.
