Well, we are still in Oregon and we do love it here, but.....the engine light started to come on in the truck, so we are getting it fixed and the shop couldn't get to it right away, so we're camping and visiting my BIL/SIL a little longer. We've been having a good time with them and I've been doing some sewing, though not too much.
I finished June's basket appliqué blocks - finally! There are 12 of them, 6 more just like the ones in the picture below.
Yesterday we went to a few garage sales with my BIL/SIL. One of them was selling some reproduction quilting fabric!!! The FQs were $.50 each!!!!
There was some yardage as well for about $2/yd.!!!
|The red floral border fabric is from Andover|
I also made a sunsuit and a romper for Abby's 12" dolls. The matching hats aren't finished yet.
I bought this 18" doll at a different garage sale for $.50 and thought I could use it to try on clothes that I might make for Abby's doll. This one had all her hair cut off, so I decided to make a hat for her (I've been making hats for the children's hospital). Then I thought she needed a hospital gown to go with the hat. My DS (Abby's Daddy) is a registered nurse, so Abby can pretend her doll is sick. The fabric for the gown is from a thrift shop.
We're making the best of our delay, but we want to go HOME! Maybe I can get the quilting on the doll quilt finished after all!
