today I’ve been working on catching up with all the email correspondence- I’ve been terrible!
Also, I’ve meant to give some great feedback for Dollmaker’s Journey for fantastic service. I needed some special fabric for a class I’m taking- I ordered on a Saturday and had it on the Monday- wow!
Here is a not doll project I did yesterday- new placemats.
Yeah, I’m finally using some of the fabrics I’ve bought recently! I love cotton prints, but they don’t really fit in much with the dolls I’m doing these days. The back (or maybe they are reversible) is linen from IKEA a few years ago. Here is the great insight of yesterday- I struggled through sewing 2 of the mats with a million pins and still getting puckers and tucks… all of a sudden I remembered my walking foot- that amazing tool that came with my sewing machine but I had never yet tried- well, guess what- it really works! The 6 that I did after that came out much better!
Here they are on the table, along with some of my old art i.e. my pottery that got broken and turned into a mosaic hot dish holder.
And a picture of the kitchen window on a spring evening-
