Sewing for granddaughters!


I've been gone for awhile, but it's good to be back! I'm ready to get back to my quilting. I have a customer's quilt just calling my name from downstairs....soon...very soon!

Before I left to help my mother with her move, I finished a birthday gift for one of my granddaughters. It took much longer than I had anticipated so it was late :o( But she thought it was just an extension of her birthday when she finally did get it! She calls it her 'special purse'. I'm so glad she thinks so :o)

Here are some pictures....My son overheard my little granddaughter talking to Cinderella on her 'cell phone' about getting ready for the ball :o)


While I was out west, I spent time with my daughters sewing some with them too. I had a grand time. I also made a trip to a fabric wholesaler out there who was having a sale...(did you know you could get 5 bolts of fabric into a suitcase!!) I used some of the fabric I bought and made one little granddaughter a duvet cover, matching pillow and pillow case and curtains. I think it all turned out pretty darn cute if I say so myself! (humble - I know...)

(I didn't make the bedskirt. I just place the fabric there to show what a bedskirt from the raindrop fabric could look like (o: ) Don't you just love the giant ric rac?


I am now selling this cute Blake Riley fabric in my Etsy shop! I will also sell the giant ric rac, but it isn't posted yet. (My husband has our camera in China! So the pictures will have to wait until he gets home!)

That purse is incredible mom! I have never seen anything like it. How long did that take to make? Does Lylia get one? lol. I can't believe how amazing that is! You should enter that into a show, did you come up with the idea yourself? If so you are very crafty!
