Big on Photos...

I know you all have been waiting ~grin~ ...
I can now show you all the things I have made
and didn't show here because they were (mostly) gifts.

Curtains for my sewing room.
I actually made these way back in September,
but I failed to show them off to you. 
Love this bright yellow!

Two pillows for my living room.  The one on the right is black linen with natural linen on the front and natural linen on the back.  Zipper on the other end.  12 x 22 inches.  The one on the left is a black print I've had forever with Kona solid in Stone.  16 inches.  


Doll clothes for 18-20 inch Waldorf (or dolls with a similar build).



Kleenex cozies for sister Joyce.


Pillow covers.



 


This is really a crappy photo, but it's the only one I have right now.
Coin purse.

Key fob.


Table Runners.
Ran across Erin's Tree Farm tutorial on Christmas Eve morning
and quickly whipped up these two runners.
13x29 inches.
11x21 inches.


I gifted myself with this book.
Are you familiar with Yoko's work?
It is simply amazing!!
Cannot wait to make up a few pieces using her techniques.
Go here to look through the book.  



I had a wonderful Christmas with Jill and Tim.
Vegetable pizza and chicken tacos...
card-playing and gift-opening.

I have a lot of plans for the coming year.  
Will share that with you in a post after New Year's Day.

Wishing you all the very best...
have a Happy New Year!

Old and New...


About a million years ago - or when I was about 8 years old - my Grandma made a quilt for my Chatty Cathy doll.  I have managed to hang on to it all these years.  I used to keep it in my cedar chest, but now it sits on top of the pile of small quilts and unused pillow covers that reside on said cedar chest.

Here it is...

I love it...don't you?  It measures about 21" square and is made with pieces of corduroy, cotton and flannel...it is soooo soft!

One day, out of the blue, I had a thought!  (ohyeah...it does happen once in awhile!)  The thought was to take my scraps of Christmas fabrics and make a doll quilt based loosely on the way Grandma put together my little quilt.  So, that's what I did.  I finished it this morning.


This one measures about 23 inches square.  I will be listing it in my Etsy shop later today.

I have been busy sewing...more to show tomorrow.
