It’s been so rainy here in Connecticut. I was hoping for some sunshine to help with my photography but no luck. So with some help from PicMonkey here’s some of what I’ve been up to.
This is the LeMoyne Star and it’s the June block in Laura Nownes Craftsy class, 2013 Block of the Month, this is a FREE class click here to check it out! Affiliate or not this Craftsy class is wonderful! I’ve never made as detailed a star as this and I think it came out pretty well. I followed her directions to the letter. I figure she knows what she’s doing! And I’m so happy with the results. This is a large block, I still have to square it up and it should end up being 19.5″ square (fingers crossed!). In the next photo you can see where I nailed the intersection of the seams and some that were just a smidge off. For my first time I’m okay with that :)
Up next are some cloth dolls, in progress. I decided to refine my pattern and have changed the shape of the arms and legs. Click here to see some more of my dolls. I love the feet now! I’ve also made a new dress and apron pattern. I have to admit I love making these dolls, they are pretty labor intensive and each takes me about three hours to finish. But when you love what you’re doing it’s time well spent.
I hope to embroider their faces and make their tiny wigs over the next couple of days.
And lastly this little organic flannel bunny. I had some scraps of vintage ticking and lined his ears with it, so cute!
Along with the sewing I’ve also been painting, a lot. Some large pieces of furniture and a flight of stairs. And as soon as I get some sunshine I’ll be posting about these projects.
I hope you are all having a wonderful summer!
