Well, the Gnomes had to move their house to another garden. It seems a band of Trolls moved in next to them, and they were a loud bunch. So they traveled down into the valley hoping that they will have a nice long stay in this place. lol
These dolls kept Gramma busy sewing for them for about 3/4 weeks.
head for a minute or two. lol
The pink shrug was a head scratchier. The blue wrap dress is one of my favorites. I kind of customized it a little bit from the pattern.
Of course the stripe "mod outfit" made me think back to the 70's. haha
The orange dress is a Peasant dress .... super easy after I re-read the instructions a few times. lol
I was really surprised how these pj's went together. I have to do another pair ... I think these are Izabela's most favorite outfit.
A craftier I am not. But, I put together a makeshift closet and hangers for the dolls until Grampa has the time to make a better one. This was just from a box covered in fabric. But my granddaughter really loved it.
All the clothes patterns can be found in the pattern booklet by Annie's Sewing: Love to Dress Up" for 18" dolls. These were just a couple of the patterns in the booklet, My Granddaughter may have to wait until her birthday in September to get the rest of them.
I also made two small quilts for the bunk bed Grampa is going to make!
I don't believe it, but I never got a complete "done picture" of the quilt I made for my granddaughter as a gift for her First Communion. I must have thought that I would get a picture of it after she opened it. You know the saying, "Best Laid Plans and all"
This shows a couple of blocks and the turquoise flannel fabric for the back. This quilt was the size for a double bed, and it was very warm and very heavy in my hoop to quilt. But I was on a mission and got it hand quilted in 2 weeks.
I did get a picture of the completed top laying on my bed.
Look what I found on my camera, a picture of my Granddaughter, Izabela, after she opened it.
At this time I don't know where my next sewing project is going to take me. I know I am way behind in my monthly Loyal Union blocks .... need to play catch up there. Also, I have enough fabric to start the Cottage Romance Quilt published in the 2015 McCall's Quilting magazine.
Well, it gives me something to think about as I lay down to sleep at night. If I can't fall asleep right away, I usually have some quilting project playing in my brain. lol Before I know it ... I fall asleep. Bad thing ... I never remember the great quilt I created in my head. DUH!!
Thanks for stopping by, hope you will visit again.
