New and Old Supplies

And so it begins . . .  I’m going to learn quilting and make a quilt for Claire.  The deadline:  when she learns how to climb out of her crib and moves into a big girl’s bed.

I set up a sewing center in my dining room.  Here I organized my thread (ROY G.BIV!) on the fireplace mantle.

This old skirt is going to become the skirt of the Tea Party Dress for Claire–the first of many tea party dresses, I’m sure.

I can barely fit the bodice of the tea party dress on my fabric leftover from the continuous bias tape project, but it works!new and old supplies


Note to self:  Use a copier instead of tracing 9 tiny pieces of the pattern, (using the window as a lightbox, I might add).  Egads!  The pattern is 2T-5T.  I think I’ll get A LOT of use out of it.

Stayed tuned for Claire’s new dress by the end of the week.  Coming soon–my completed summer blouse.

Have a great Memorial Day!
