Dollie Number 2

Always love my sew days with my mom ! !
We get to enjoy each others company
AND .    .       .   .    .
We get to sew, or sometimes we just
talk about our next project.

This sew day we made another dollie.

A co-worker had just moved into
her new house and I thought she
would love to have a dollie.

One day I spent painted the fabric.

Then the next sew day we made the doll.

I named her Hattie Mae.

I hope Hattie Mae enjoys her new home ! ! !

Happy New Years ! !

Mr. Grinch



I would like to wish that everyone
out there in blogland

We are going to have a White Christmas this year.
When I woke up this morning there was snow on the
ground and it is still coming down.
The snow plows have already came down our street.

I would like to thank those who have joined my blog
and leave comments.
(I do follow many blogs but don't always leave comments.)

This past year has had many ups and many,
many downs for me. and am hoping the New Year
will be a more positive year.

My first

Always enjoy the time I spend with mom on our sew days.
This sew day mom showed me how to make a doll.
This was an easy pattern.  At least it was for me.
Mom found the Angel Doll Pattern on Corry's blog.

Below is a pic of my first doll. 
She is the Chrisamas Gift for the
Thimbleberries Christmas Party.
Even though she didn't stay with me
very long I hope she will be
happy at her new home.

I named her Sally.

Christmas Stocking

As I was browsing thru my reader I came across
a link to Nebraska Views for Christmas Stockings
made from blue jeans on Alderwood Quilts
I have about 20 old pairs of jeans I need to do something with
so I thought I would try a Christmas Stocking
I already made 1 apron.

Not too bad for my first practice jean stocking.
Hopefully the next ones I make will be better.

Journal Covers

The next sew date was spent making journal covers. 
I had made two this day.

My first one was plain.

The second one I added  a pencil/cell phone pocket.

I gave them away to PK. 

She LOVED them.

It's been

Awhile since my last post.
I have been busy at work and also having sew days with my mother.

It seems like we never end up doingwhat we had planned.
I finished two table toppers. 

One for a gift exchange and work.

And one for a co-worker.

I am still working on another table topper for a co-worker. 
He might not get his by Christmas.
