I signed up for another swap. I really use these to try and keep up with sewing. I have been doing a bit lately and want to keep up the momentum. I have done a few outfits for Caroline and Julie. I hope to have some nice weather soon to post pictures and hopefully start putting some outfits in my Etsy shop. I have had to do a bit of traveling lately to see a back surgeon and a neurologist for my migraines. Just more continuing stuff from my car accident. Although I have have migraines and headaches every day since I was 16, they have gotten substantially worse since my car accident and have prohibited me from doing a lot of things. I try and get in things when I feel better or good, but my activity level has definitely dwindled to a mere trickle. Hopefully I will have pictures up soon. Thanks for reading. :)

We took advantage of American Girl's free shipping last week and ordered Kit for our daughter for Christmas. Ever since she seen her first AG catalog, she has wanted Kit. We ordered her accessories as well, but I was only able to take a quick photo of Kit herself as my son was due home and I didn't want him spilling the beans to his big sister about the new dolly. LOL I never really liked Kit, but seeing her in person makes me love her. She is just adorable. In other news, I was supposed to be taking photos of my items to put in my Etsy shop, but unfortunately, the whole household, except for my son, got a nasty flu bug and put a stop to that. Hopefully this week, I will be able to finally put photos up and get things in my store. I have 4 hats for Julie, and a dress each for Elizabeth, Addy and Caroline. Please excuse the huge photos. I resize all my photos, but photobucket just does not want to co-operate.

Some of you know we had to put one of our cats, Wiggy, down in June. She was a wedding gift. She ended up getting cancer by the time we found out, it was too late. Well, we were able to get a new cat and her name is Razzle. She is a funny little cat and we love her. Her favorite spot is on my husband's shoulders. Every time he picks her up, she scrambles up there and lays down. :)
I received my second swap item. I got a very sweet fall dress for my #21 Gracie. Lady Alec send a crocheted shrug and belt as well as some lovely fall photos that she made into a booklet. She does amazing photography. My Gracie wants to run out in a meadow with the breeze, but it is way too cold here to do that! LOL

Both outfits that I made for the two swaps I entered have been sent, received and posted, so now I can post what I made. The blue princess dress went to Jenifer/Gomunk on the AGDollhouse board. The victorian outfit when to Julie/jchappa on the AGPlaythings board. I sent some other goodies to them as well. Sorry if some of the pictures are a bit washed out. Lighting was poor.
