Notforgotten Farm. The pattern is available here. Very nice sentiment indeed.
Ewe & Eye & Friends. Gorgeously stitched and finished by Lillie. Love all those buttons!
Merilyn says. Love the Old Fashioned Calicoes by Barbara Brackman and the print scale is so dainty. The stitchery owl by Gail Pan is quite handsome ... a must stitch.
Thank you all for the wonderful gifts I've received. I so appreciate your generosity and time.

Red Brolly. I was to complete it by Easter but you know how it is ... In this picture I've not added her eyes yet, that is a pin to indicate the eye's position. She turned out rather biggish so I intend to make another smaller version for myself.

A dress for my sis. The toile was sewn and some adjustments to the paper pattern was made. And then the fashion fabric is cut. Since this is a whole different type of sewing it requires a step by step construction. The fit is important for the bodice. The cotton fabric is thin (hard to work with) and frays like crazy. Since the lining is silk satin I think it's gonna be another challenge. But I like the piping details that I am adding for the top and bottom of the midriff pieces.

Hemming with a bias binding is so classy. I like the look and it finishes very neatly. Even the Sorbetto top was hemmed with satin bias binding tape.
A couple of Japanese cotton fabrics from Fah Num known for it's infamous pricing. But I zoom in to those with 50% discounts! It'll be a challenge with matching the plaids but I am sure it will be interesting. The blue is for another dress and Spanish white cotton (not in pic) is drying on the clothesline now.
Abebooks dealer. I think I will delve into making a simple cloth doll before tackling the Gail Wilson's ultimate dolls.
As always, thank you for dropping by.
