one thing i am never lacking is a very great number of projects in progress.
here are some current favorites:
stacks of ragged edge burp cloths made from woolies flannels (in my shop) for 2 friends from church who have recently had baby boys.
it's a simple log cabin block with big 2 inch stripes of the incredibly cozy woolies flannel that look like wool and feel like heaven. i was inspired by an antique quilt made in the late 1800s and photographed on a bed in "house beautiful" magazine. i need to photograph that photo.
and more woolies projects:
i made a nightgown for gracie and pajamas for mia for christmas using woolies flannels and this vintage pattern i found on etsy. mia loves hers, and gracie has tried to live in hers for the last two months. if we do manage to get her dressed to go out, she'll change back into her nightgown as soon as we get home. it was becoming like linus's blanket, and so i made another for her to wear while the first is in the laundry, from the creamy plaid. and mia cut out her own nightgown from the blue plaid (still in progress).
i found these two 1920's era dress patterns to make dresses for my two teenagers who are double-cast as dorothy in their high school's production of 'thoroughly modern millie".
i have fun fabric (found on etsy) for the dress on the right (slightly sheer yellow with dots), that is ready to cut into. the taffeta i ordered for the dress on the left was a disappointment - completely wrong color (deep emerald green instead of a dusty pastel blue/green), and i'm working on finding a good replacement.
and this is not a project yet, but i want it to be:
I found this precious pattern, published in 1957 on ebay, and can't wait to use it to make a dress for gracie.
