Even the roses are blooming like it's summertime. They love all this mild weather, with rain one day and sunshine the next.
My friend, MJ, That drove with me to Nevada, came over Wednesday and got me started on a doll. She is helping me make a Elinor Peace Bailey fairy named Amethyst. I don't sew much but I'm having a lot of fun with this.
I'm hoping to be good enough, when I finish, to take one of Ms. Bailey's classes at Fabric Chicks in Nevada and make another doll.
I went a little nuts at Walmart today buying some fun, glittery fabric and trims for her clothes.
and the beautiful trim.
There are lots of doll patterns to choose from. Take a look at all of these. I like Kay-La-Belle from Kalispell the best. (My good friend "D" works in Kalispell, MT.)
But, I may finish Amethyst and decide that this is way harder than I thought and not want to make another one. We will see. Right now, it's a lot of fun.
I'm actually using my sewing machine and the Prospector is amazed. I don't use it much but here I am... buying thread for it, reading the instruction book and relearning what I've forgotten. It's working like a brand new machine and it's a 35 year old Kenmore zig-zag machine with drop in embroidery cams and it's still in great working order. I had it cleaned and oiled about 10 years ago and that's it. This definitely says something about Sears products.
I love Elinor Peace Bailey's crazy red hair and her wonderful 'tude. She is the founder of...
