Oh my goodness! my sweet friend Maurine sent me a load of patterns & when I seen the big momma with her baby & big ole goose on the top …..
I bout squealed like a sissy girl lol! I have this pattern but I lost it, then found it got it all cut out then the house ate it again & I’ve been thinking about it for a while, so I was excited to see her in the mix of all the sweet patterns
there’s not been much time spent in the sewing room lately,life has kept us busy with grand babies ball games, graduating daycare, kindergarten, keeping a check on my parents, dad is in the early stages of dementia & mom doesn’t get around as good as she use too, we’re getting ready to under go some major changes of much needed repairs to the house,, tomorrow night we’re going to a nieces high school graduation out of town , then come home , pack & get ready to go out of town to a ladies conference for the weekend & the list goes on & on
I came across Sweet Bear Creek Whims Blog & she has a fantastic tutorial on how to paint a black doll that looks very interesting, I’ve made several black dolls but I think I may give her method a try, I’ve never attempted to do painted eyes so I’m kinda excited!
be sure to check out her blog & other patterns
you can also follow her on Facebook
I miss making my Fall babies, I don’t think they’d sell at my Christmas show yet it’s funny how the Americana ones will sell even at Christmas
I usually don’t start preparing for my Christmas show till around October but since it’s the only one I do now I’m thinking of clicking my heels together
making sure there's an abundance of supplies & knowing where my patterns are lol!
I found this cute guy on Pinterest just the thing for my Christmas in July theme
so far June looks to be a clear month but I’m sure that wont last long lol! it’s not quite here yet & already I’m excited about all the ideas I have for Christmas in July lol!
