This has been a great week for sewing – got three more blocks done for my samplers:
These triangles were all done using different methods – will share that soon!
Early in the week, I went on a hunt for a pattern that I just knew I had – but never did find. What I did find was a whole bunch of stuff that’s been sitting around for ages waiting for me to pay some attention to it. In among all that was these two beauties:
I don’t know why I made these, but I had fallen in love with the series of patterns. They really challenged my crochet skills. When I found them, they needed a little TLC, so after getting them fixed up, and braiding the very fly-away hair – they’ll go to the local thrift shop – hopefully some little girl will be looking for a Barbie-type doll and these just might fit the bill. I don’t know that the costumes will be useful, but at least they’re dressed LOL!
Then yesterday, my dear friend Bev came for a sewing day together. She had seen this in a store in Fairview, WA recently and wanted to make it for her granddaughter: No pattern!!! Now that was a challenge, but using measurements she had, and a pajama top she’d bought, we drew out the top and started sewing. She had chosen the cutest fabrics:
As the day wore on, we found some trying moments with the serger and sewing machine, and knew that we should probably be stopping, but we were so close to the finish, and finding a day together again would probably be a while so we forged on through. I can’t wait to see that little girl’s face when she gets her ‘cape’ so she can help Grandma bake.
Bev brought me some fabric, too!!
It was a wonderful, blessed day.
Happy sewing with friends. Blessings, Peg
