LifestyleYesterday was a day off so I started cleaning up the guest room. The floor is 75% washed and had a lovely layer of dust on it. I did it on my hands and knees so it would be really clean.
While in the room, I started to sort through the Christmas fabrics once again. I have 2 huge bags to go to a friend who will give them to quilting guilds. I have one banker's box left of mixed fabrics. There is some Christmas fabric in the mix.
I still have one more half day to finish up the room as I need to sort and organize a bit more, launder the bedding, and finish washing the floor. But, I am happy with the results so far.
SewingI spent the other half of the day sewing for the 18" doll. I sewed an apron for her and she looks like she could cut fabric at a fabric store on July 1 (Canada Day).
The apron was quite simple to sew. Next came the hat which was a bit more difficult but not so hard it wasn't fun to make.
Lastly, I made the tote bag which was the most time consuming of all the pieces. It has a piece of fabric folded into pockets on the front which was very fiddly to work with. But, in all it turned out well.
I sewed the last large piece of the maple leaf fabric into a table cloth so she can have a picnic or cover a table. It is folded up and in the bag.
In all, I am happy with the results and she will be in our Sew Canadian display at the store.
I will be making more of these items when I can. I have some fabric which will be perfect for aprons, hats, and bags.
TodayWe have to grocery shop and then I work the late shift at the store. I do hope to get a lot of number work done on fabrics today/night.
Until the next time............................
