Nowadays, a Forever Project is whatever handwork project I am working on ... whether or not it takes Forever. It's a take-along project that I have contained in a 'grab-n-go' project box: a plastic flat tote that contains all the things I need to work on the project. Whenever I go someplace in the car, whether it was for Little League games, a doctor's appointment or a road trip, the tote was grabbed and we went. Heaven forbid that I have no sewing to do with large stretch of empty time ahead of me!
My current Forever Project is a quilt that features 12 embroidered 1950's era dresses on mannequins. It comes from Bobby Socks Quilt Company.
Dress #5 is a sleeveless dress with a darling Peter Pan collar and lace edging.
The pattern calls for the entire skirt to be covered with French knots but as I had just finished Dress #4's bodice and this bodice, I was real tired of doing massive expanses of French knots. Instead, I opted to do a border of French Knots on the skirt.
While I *could* have started on a different dress that did not have any French Knots, that would have entailed doing the dress ... oh the horror! ... *out of order* ::gasp!::
