UFO and Christmas Shopping
http://www.agplaythings.com/AG%20Patterns/DollDressPatterns.html that you can download all the retired patterns for FREE!! Gotta love that!!
There is nothing to say other than hubby and I are overindulgent when it comes to the grands. I have had a wild hair to buy the little girls a "Bitty Baby" for awhile now. After looking over the latest catalog all week I decided to bite the bullet and hit the purchase button. In 5-8 days the first of two bitty babies should be on the doorstep. Next month we will purchase the other one. I have seen the babies on other shopping sites but I have had too many friends who have been ripped off over the years from less than honest sellers :(
I haven't paid attention to whats been going on with American Girl dolls in???? maybe 15 years. Our youngest DD is now 30 years old. If I remember right we have Molly, Kristen, Addy, Samantha, and one Bitty Baby all tucked away in the attic along with their clothes. Who knew the company has put out SO MANY new dolls. The little girls will inherit their mommies regular size dolls and accessories when they are older. If the mommies want the new models they are on their own HOWEVER.... This Nanny plans on making a few new outfits with the excess fabric I have on hand in the near future.
A trip to the attic is in order so I can dig around and find our old "Bitty Baby" along with all her gear for the grands to play with at our hose. Also need to hunt down the clothes for the regular size dolls so I will know what I should make too add to their wardrobe.
Check out this new blog http://www.janicefergusonsews.com/blog/ I have added to my blog list, sew many sweet things to drool over!!! Her smocking is oh sooo sweet. Someday.........I am going to try this.
Anybody else have your DD's old dolls you have held on too over the years for your Grands?
