American Girl visits Orca Bay

The sewing machine has been humming, going back and forth from capes and dresses, to what seems like thousands of black and white HST's!! Here's my progress so far.... all the blue string blocks done and I'm making serious headway on the HST's.
I am really intrigued to see what Bonnie has in mind for all these. I still have a bunch more, but I am more than half way there. The rest will have to wait until after Christmas, I'm done for now.

These little dresses are for my granddaughter's AG doll and a matching one for her best friend's doll. There is something so enjoyable about creating gifts for children/ grandchildren, especially your own! One of my friends suggested maybe a business opportunity in light of my imminent unemployment. I'm not so sure about that, but I had a blast doing these and a matching flannel nightgown for my DGD and her AG doll.

Until next time,

that sewing business might be an idea even if just for a little while.
I love the black and white hst-they look so good just on your wall.

My grand daughter loves to play with the American Girl doll that lives at my house...Molly. She is around 20 years old now....belonged to my daughter.Molly is still going strong and looks wonderful. I have all of her clothes too, many of them that I made. I'm sure there will be a time, in just a few years, when I'll be sewing little clothes again when Lula wants a doll of her own at her house! Bonnie sure loves those tiny blocks, doesn't she! I'm sure it will be a neat quilt!

I see an AG doll in my future, but not quite yet. Our 3 y/o granddaughter is a bit too young. I'm looking forward to sewing doll clothes some day, which was always great fun as our daughters grew up.
I just wouldn't have the patience for all those B/W HSTs. Carry on! I'll watch you have all the fun. :)

I can't wait to see what the mystery quilt will be, that's a ton of piecing. The little dresses are adorable, how fun they must have been to make.
