Okay to catch up on the last couple of days -
On Friday after a nap - I finished the stitchery for the pillow I'm making for a friends birthday. And did a little more sewing on the doll bags I started on Tuesday.
Yesterday - I went to "Strip Club" at the local quilt shop. I intended to finish quilting the pattern "Poinsettia" from last month, but that didn't happen, I took it anyway and showed what I had quilted so far. The pictures were taken before I buried the threads. I got all for squares done and part of the sashing. I need to do the inner border and then the outer border and it will be done. :)
Here is a picture of the quilt pattern she had for this month. I just love the colors. It was made using a special ruler that I actually have this time, Yeah! But the pattern shows how to use a regular 12x12 ruler if you don't have one. I don't need another project, but I may do this one down the road.
Then after I got home - I finished the pillow. I made the pillow form with muslin and polyfil and then I made the pillow cover that can be taken off and washed if needed.
She is a cat lover, and loves lavender so I think she'll really like this.
Then after I finished that I got back to work on the little doll stuff. I finished the fish bag and made a little quilt to go with it. I didn't have anymore of the fish fabric so I couldn't make my regular quilt I make for the bags, so I picked out colors that matched the fish and made this one.
I'm having trouble getting the little baby dolls I normally use for my doll bags. My Sister got me some little dolls - actually tiny dolls. :) and I wasn't sure I was going to be able to make little clothes for them. But I wanted to at least give it a try. I took off the little dress it had on which is the blue one and viola - I was able to make a "Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weenie" dress - the one in pink.
Which now gives me some ideas for how to make a dress for some larger dolls I got. Hmmm good things can come from small packages after all. :)
Okay well that's all I got done yesterday before grocery shopping and dinner.
Today I want continue with the doll bags and make more little dresses and nighties.
And Tomorrow is Mystery Monday - We haven't had it for a couple of months so I'm looking forward to it. I'll have to let you know what Mystery we have tomorrow.
Hope you're having a great day.
Blessings - Lynn
