Having Fun!

The weekend passed way too quickly, however, I really had fun making this quilt for the new grandbaby that is expected in April. 

The fabric is a find from Portland's Fabric Depot.  I loved it from the moment I saw it without a clue what I would make with it.  Probably a quilt.  Maybe some pillows.  Or ...........hmmmmm.   I had Josie in mind when I bought the fabric since our new little miss was not dreamed of yet. 

I used the flower border decorative stitch on my sewing machine for the quilting.  I am very pleased with how it turned out.

Happy New Year!

This will be a happy new year! 

I have so much new in my life.  A thinner, healthier me.  A new job.  Soon a new grandbaby.  Many, many new projects to complete. 

Now that the Christmas season is over and decorations are put away, I can focus on sewing.  I make such a mess when I sew!  My 'stuff' escapes from the sewing room and ends up all over the house.   I cannot just sew in the sewing room.  And I need my 'stuff' with me where ever I am. 

I have many dolls in mind for this year.  Finish two online classes I started last year,  2013 Hoffman Challenge and Gypsy Challenge - Masquerade.   Plus our monthly Doll Club challenges. 

But first, I need to make a baby quilt and baby dress for the new granddaughter who will arrive in early April.  Another girl to make dresses for!  Hurray!!

May this be a happy, healthy, productive and CREATIVE year for all!
