Pictures, I Have Pictures!!


Finally, Blogger has allowed an upload! I have been spending endless hours in my sewing room. It is cold in there and a welcome relief when he who stokes the fire too much is home.

It has been so cold lately, though, that mu nose and toes are frozen. The clothes and doll are for my great-granddaughter, Jailynn. She is 3. I found this panel for the rag doll in my fabric stash and decided that she would like a doll for Christmas. I gave the doll some joints and made some extra clothes for her. I attempted the pants and was so very proud that I had managed to have them match Jailynn's pants. Well, until I attempted to put them on the doll. The big feet would not fit through the legs of the pants! The jumpers fit, though and are reversible. I will try again on those pants.



I fly north tomorrow and see my grandchildren. These are for my girls. I found this corduroy for $1 a yard!!! All the prints coordinate, so they match, sort of.


See the buttons? They came off my Dad's old uniforms. Navy buttons on the belt loops.


The dogs have been annoyed with me for leaving them in the house while I sew. Mr. Martha is able to climb and jump and stay with me where ever I go. He likes baskets and he likes to stash stuff in them. His eyes are not green, they are gold, but the light hit them at an odd angle in this shot.

I am off to drag the vacuum to my luggage to suck some air out and make them actually close. I sure hope they don't decide to open my bags ......... They won't be able to close them again.

So cute! Here's hoping you can find a way to fit the pants on Little Big Foot.

Have a safe and wonderful trip!

Kathy,
That doll is so cute and those jumpers are precious especially meaningful with your dad's buttons. Hope you're flying high and having fun. I used to sew dresses for my daughter and sew a matching dress for her Christmas doll.
