Sparkle Jane Is Now A Mrs.

Well, despite dire weather, the wedding was a success.

And they are very happy.

If you look at that last photo you can see the snow starting to drift on the right.

We all made it home safe and sound and they are in the process of moving.

Thank you all for your kind wishes.

ps–If you are wondering about the Hearts Desire(d) wedding quilt, I am still accepting blocks through the first week of April. Then assembly will begin. No, it is not too late. (Let’s all be honest, plenty of weddings have happened without quilts being finished.)

Another Set Of Doll Dresses

It was a day off from school so I, naturally, went to school for a few hours to catch up, and there was snow (YAY!) to shovel, but there was also some sewing time. I had this lovely small piece of paisley lawn. I don’t know the manufacturer, but it begged to be doll dresses.

I used this TUTORIAL for the American Girl (18″ doll) dress, and THIS ONE for the smaller (14″) doll dress. The matching bandana idea came from HERE.

Doll sewing is a fun creative change of pace from quilting. Not something I want to do every day, but once a month? Sure!
