Yesterday morning Mason and I got these little dresses in the mail for big sister, little sister and Bitty Baby doll.
Couldn't leave their sweet Mama out so she is receiving matching kitchen towels for cleaning up after her sweet little girls.
Spent some time this afternoon matching up 1/8th quarters to make a tube quilt. (my first)
Gonna cuddle up on the couch with AJ the beagle and a warm quilt tonight and enjoy this book I haven't taken the time to read in a long time. Crappy photo, sorry
Finally a cold rainy day!!! LOVE IT, seems crazy I know but we had such a mild winter getting this cold front and some rain is a welcome change to the summer temperatures we have been having. Perfect evening for a good cookbook, hot tea and snuggling with AJ the beagle who is very put out that her Daddy is once again on the road.
Yesterday my sister and I worked on pillow case dresses. She hasn't sewn for years but seemed to enjoy the process once she got started. Can't wait to see a photo of her Grand in her new tropical dress. Her grand Blakely was born 2 days after our Kara, we had a bunch of little girls join the family a year and a half ago!! I forgot how fun it was to sew for little girls, our youngest is 29, it's been a long time. Buttons, bows, and ruffles, OH MY. I have 3 dresses I started today for our girls and a friends grand, just need to add the ruffles and they are good to go. It might not happen tonight as the cold rainy day is calling me to just be for a night.
For a change of pace this afternoon I matched up some 1/8 quarters to begin a tube quilt. The pattern seems easy enough but I needed a "Strip Tube Ruler". Since the fabric store called yesterday to tell me a pattern I had ordered was in it was the perfect opportunity to pick up both. (saving on my gas budget) I need to STOP the spending!!! However in my defense I have whipped out 4 dresses each for the little girls without spending a dime on fabric. The new pattern is for a purse for who else but, the little girls, so cute and ruffly. It comes in 4 sizes so I might just do a little blog candy next week for an adult spring purse. I am so into this stash busting mood!!!!
