I LOVE a great day and I got to have one of those yesterday thanks to my sweet Angel of Mercy better known as Suzanne my Respite Gal! Because of her, I got out all day yesterday. Yes, she is paid for her work but she's one of 'those' that would do it for nothing, too!
I spent most of my time in JoAnn's yesterday finding material for my new dollies. They are crying out for clothing and I'm tickled with the combinations I've come up with.
See the sweet watermelon fabric and buttons? That will be a dress with the hot pink polka dot being the bloomers. She'll also have a pink gingham apron. Her name is Melanie and she likes watermelon! She'll also hold a wooden watermelon in her hand! I have 2 other dolls; one will be Americana with the red star fabric being the dress and the navy blue polka dots being the bloomers. She'll hold a wooden firecracker in her hand. I'm naming her Carol after our own 'Firecracker Kid'!! My last one will be dressed in the yellow. She'll have turquoise polka dot bloomers.No name yet for her. The black is for the backing of a small quilt for Twirly Girl and also for some Bumbles that I'm sewing up with yellow gingham stripes.
This fabric is for our youngest daughter. She loves skirts . I SCORED this on the clearance rack. No, I didn't pay $5.99 a yard........it was reduced 50% as was the yellow fabric! Joann's has their 'Daffodil' Sale going on now. There wasn't ONE thing that I bought that wasn't on sale!
