Trying to Catch Up on My Sewing

Over the weekend I finally finished up some projects that I have had sitting in my sewing room. I just thought I 'd share with you all what I have been doing.

A Tinkerbell pillow and apron for my grand daughter Sabrina

A unicorn apron for her mom, Nikki

and a floral apron for my son's girlfriend, Amanda

I also made Mallory this little gathered skirt and a matching dress for her hairless Annie doll. I'm going to work on the hair this week.

and finally I finished sewing the squares together for the afghan I was making so now I've just got to sew in the hundreds of loose ends on the back.

Today I'm going to do some yard work until it starts to storm and then finish up a couple of other sewing projects.

Have a great day!

Sherry you do such beautiful work it seems like you have really been busy. I need to get myself motivated and get things done.

Sherry, These goodies are so pretty. My favorite is the skirt and Annie doll! So cute! Yesterday I did so good on my water that I was up all night in the bathroom. Ha! Today is not that good (babysitting 4 grandkids)! Tomorrow is a new day though.

You are a sewing machine! Great aprons and the skirt / matching doll dress are fabulous. I crochet but I despise sewing squares together. I love yours! Sewing in those ends will be a perfect project for one of these cold, rainy nights.

I wish I could sew well. I can do simple things, but nothing fancy like you. I have never had a good sewing machine to practice on and I can't read patterns...love all the stuff you made!

I love them all! When you decide to catch up, you really do it dont you? I am so unmotivated to sew right now......

Dianne said...

Do you sleep at all? Wow-these are some lovely pieces you've made. Your afghan reminds me of one that my mom made in the 1950s. The aprons are too cute as is Mallory's skirt and dolly!

My DIL made this up using the pictures of my 5 oldest boys. So funny!
