Pieces like that old poison green apron folded there on the white box, and that bonnet cut from black and white fabric, and that's not all, there's more inside the box,
so I'm throwing it all out and cutting some pretty pieces to work on.
Anyhow while getting rid of the ugly things, I noticed that American Girl doll (found at Goodwill) dressed in that green outfit I made...
I never did like that outfit. Green is just not my color, and the dress looks too puffy and big.
Neither is blue my color, but blue calico, now that's different...
To me, she looks much much sweeter, and wait til you see the 'new born' size sweater that was on the infant table at Goodwill...
So adorable. Looks like it was made for her.
I am seriously thinking about making doll clothes to sell when Shelby and I do a craft show. That would be fun, and give me something different to work on.
Been thinking about that bird feeder/bird house?? on my last post as to what it really is??
Poppy says, "trust me, it is a bird feeder. The holes are way too big and there is a hole on each side". So, should we go with what Poppy says? :)
and here it is hanging on the front porch...
That is a funny little nuthatch hanging on. Like the chickadee, the nuthatch is a cute bird to watch, the way they scoot up and down trees. Sometimes coming down head first.
Looks like the well house needs to be leveled. As I've said before, our place reminds me of the old nursery rhyme...
There was a crooked man, he went a crooked mile,
He found a crooked sixpence against a crooked stile,
He bought a crooked cat, which caught a crooked mouse,
And they all lived together in a little crooked house.
Sounds like our place, doesn't it??
We had a few, a very few, snow flurries this morning. But the rain has now pushed it's way back in and will be here until Sunday.
Did I mention making doll clothes to sell? Here's my start on that big idea...
I cut out two pairs of overall...so excited! Couldn't wait to see one finished. Well, on the left is the finished pair...with two backs sewn together, hemmed and everything! The piece on top is the front of the overalls with the bib that was supposed to go with one of those back pieces. Darn it! Wouldn't you think I would have noticed having two back pieces pinned together! Guess it will take my sewing time tonight to get this mess straightened out.
Thank you for listening. :)
