When I was at retreat last week I couldn't believe my eyes!!
This picture was on the wall in my bedroom.
It looks so much like your house Pat(Winter)..

Doll Progress

Here is as far as I am with the doll.
I need to finish her surcoat next. I'm using a pale lavender dupionni silk. Once I get the skirt finished  and attatch it to the top I will put some white fur resembling ermine all around the bottom. The poor darling reallyt need her hair done soon!,
I had a real snicker doing her eyes.
I had the eyelids on backwards.. Looked like little baseball caps! VBG
Thank goodness I got my head around that one!!
Stay tuned...

Sorry I have been so long posting . I have had a few bumps in the road... Getting back to normal slowly ..

Here is a picture of the doll I was making in Colleen Babcock's class. It is called a Stitch In Time.
I have not finished mine yet but I will take some pictures of my progress  later.
Please stay tuned.
I hope I still have my readers in spite of the lapse in time since I  last posted.
I promise to do better:-}.

Recycle Glass Candle Jars

I thought I would share this idea with you..
I like to buy candles in pretty glass jars. After the candle is all used up I clean out the container and use it to store buttons.The buttons look so pretty displayed this way and adds a neat decoration to my studio.
The pin cushion  gifted to me by a friend is made from an old piece of porcelaine.Another neat idea.
Note: the star shaped button  in the bigger jar was on a darling dress my Mother made for me when I was about 6 years old.I now realize that button is 70 years old!!!!!
