I made a new pillow last week after cleaning my craft room. It looks fluffy and nice, but it is hard and heavy... because guess what it is stuffed with? My HUGE stash of fabric scraps! I thought it was a brilliant idea! And I still think it is, I just hope my kids don't try and have a pillow fight with this thing! And I planted some Swiss Chard, tomatoes and peppers indoors and they are all actually growing! I took them outside for some fresh air on the 90 degree days we had. I have high hopes for our garden this year!
Today I made the Oliver + S Bubble Dress for Anastasia out of some fairy fabric (you can't really tell in this only picture I took):
It definitely turned out too big... but I am hoping she will get several years out of it, since it took quite a while to make. I made it in a size 4, she usually wears a 3T, but It would probably look nice in a size 2T on her because she is so thin. I have another one cut for Isabel, in a different print and may size it down a little. Hmmm. And, I made this adorable Birthday Play Set for a friend's special order:
It turned out really, really adorable. The colors look sweeter in person! I will have another one up in my shop this week! I also have a couple more new things coming! Whew, I really needed a bit of a break, to refresh my inspiration! So what have you all been up to in my absence? I have hardly had time to check my favorite blogs! I hope everyone is having a lovely weekend... and where the heck did summer go? It was here a couple days ago... and winter is back. AGAIN. ;)
