Halloween Dresses On The Way

I have 3 dresses cut out for 2 sized dolls. 2 are for AG and 1 is for LD. Some of the embellishments I might use can be seen. I have a couple of other outfits almost ready to go and a few that have to be redone. Pictures are needed but it has been thunder showers here for a couple of days, so when they clear up I will get them up on Etsy.

Lea Clarke and Camille

I finally made it to an American Girl store!! My hubby and I had a planned trip to Toronto for a concert and we made a scheduled stop at Chapters and American Girl in the Eaton Center in downtown Toronto. I did not take any photos as we were with other people and so, I just looked at a few things, and then picked up Lea and Camille. Here is the unboxing, enjoy!!

I've decided to put my first Little Darling outfit up on Etsy for now. I hope you like it. It is made with silk, cotton, lace and beads. :)

Some of my dolls

I thought I would post a pic of some of my dolls that I sew for. I took this for my Etsy store to show the sizes and different dolls I have.

Curtains and Pillowcases

I have been commissioned by my sister-in-law to make two sets of curtains and a set of pillowcases, so that's what I've been working on for the last couple of days. I finished the pillowcases, and now all I have to do is the bottom hems of all four curtains, which should be done today. Then it is on to some Halloween dresses for my dolls. Halloween is my favourite time of the year, as I love all the colours and costumes!! I will be going to Toronto this month, and I finally get to go to an American Girl store for the first time and pick out my doll in person! I will be getting Lea and I can't wait. I might pick up a Wellie Wisher doll as well. I like the blonde girl with blue eyes. I love how her hair is and her expression on her face. We'll see. I am so excited!!

Both sewing machines are sick...

Hello everyone. I have been sewing a little bit lately, but both of my sewing machines are giving me problems. One of them is not pulling the fabric through, so all my stitches are small and different sizes, and the other just doesn't sound right and have to bring it in to get it serviced. I don't want to ruin these machines by continuing to sew on them when they are like this. I have a few things that I need to list on Etsy, so I hope to add them very soon. I'm hoping that Canada Post does not go on strike, but the deadline is coming up soon for that, so I am just waiting to see how that goes. Hope everyone is having a lovely summer so far!

MIA apology

Hello everyone, I am so sorry for being so MIA lately. Health issues, and kid issues have kept me from sewing and pretty much kept me from doing anything else. Depression has hit a little as well, but I am hoping that by the end of June, everything will calm down as my kids will be out of school by then. I have been doing some sewing, and finishing up of some projects and hope to get them listed to Etsy shortly. I have one outfit for the Little Darlings, and a few more for the AG dolls. I have a few cut out and in stages of being worked on, but some of those might have to be put on hold, as my daughter is graduating grade 8, and received a free grad dress from our city, but she wants more rhinestones put on it, so I have to spend time putting on up to 6000 3mm, 4mm, and 5mm rhinestones on the dress with glue. Should prove interesting. I will post before and after photos before I start that in the next week. I hope everyone is doing well and has an awesome week.
