The Dolls, yet again.
What can I tell you? I'm obsessed with sewing. It's not my fault. Blame Miss P, who started me on the downward spiral of sewing.
This is all I want to do. Forget meals. That's why eggs and yogurt were invented. Laundry? Hah! Errands? Only if they include a quilt shop or Joanne's. Straightening up my mess? Are you serious here? Whatever is the point of it? I'll only make more of a mess tomorrow.
So, here are the latest dolls and their clothing. His Most Royal Hubboness, He who shops at rummage sales, found 2 AG dolls, both with "hair cuts". One of them is Kit; I'm not sure who the other one is, but she's lovely. 2 dolls for a total of $15!
Kit, on the left, is wearing an outfit from the last post, but this time embellished with a teensy weensy yo yo. And the unknown AG doll has a yo yo on the top of her little dress.
Here are the 3 "embellished" ladies.
So, now I spend my time looking at patterns for the gals. And I'm also getting ready to actually attempt to sew a knitting project bag. Given that it's a bunch of straight lines, it should be much easier than little armholes and such.
And I'm seriously thinking of starting to do some patchwork. My poor knitting and crocheting are languishing. But looking at all the fabric colors makes me want to dye yarn. I'm thinking of a summer collection in Bambi, merino and bamboo. Maybe bright summery looks, with the bamboo, which doesn't take the dye, to soften the colors. Hmmmmm. I need an 8 day week and a 30 hour day. The more I play, the more I want to play.
Wall-to-wall books - In your dreams! Making the little outfits is more than enough. I'm not particularly good at this. Yeah, they look fine on the outside, but turn them over and we have a mess.
