Dolls and Samantha's 21st Birthday

Well this has been a busy week. I have been working on dolls and finishing up orders. I can now say, I am caught up on finished orders. I made a couple of the Sweet Meadows farm bag holders shown above. I still have to make the little sock monkeys to go in their hands. Still learning how to do the eyes, you will notice, that one doll has bigger eyes than the other. I guess this gives them different personalities.

I made a couple of more Black dolls from a Threadbare pattern. I put the feed sack aprons on these. Everything I put the feed sack aprons on last sold first. Instead of the yarn hair, I am using the black sheep's wool.

I made up a few of the Ugly Stella angels by a Raven's Haven pattern. She is always fun to make. She is so ugly, but people seem to smile when they look at her.

I finished up 8 of these bird pincushions from a pattern by Rock River Stitches.

Next, I purchase some bears from Angie Upton from Blue House Primitives. She does a great job and these are so prim looking.

I saved the best for last. My baby girl turned 21 on June 15th. She spent the day with us, grand dog came over too. Then Chris came over after work. I always cook her a birthday dinner and she wanted stew and green bean casserole. So that is what we had. I cheated and bought a store bought birthday cake. I am not good at decorating cakes, so bought one a Walmart and added the candy letters. Hubby always likes to eat the leftovers. It is so hard to believe she is 21 years old. Time sure does fly by.

Well, I have the whole evening to myself, hubby is working night shift, so hope to get some sewing done and then maybe finish with a good book. Hope you all have a great weekend.

  6. Wow, Sandy I still cannot believe the amount of work you produce! I have a sidebar link to your Prim Angel Make-Do e-pattern. And I also
    mention you in my latest comment. I just started my blog and it's a learning myself as I go kind of situation. I hope to get some work made to offer on the blog as well. I just don't know where to start. So many patterns and different types of sewing: dolls,bears,samplers, I'm getting overwhelmed. Happy Birthday, Samantha!! My "little" girl is 22 and married. I actually have a son-in-law now! I hope the grand babies come along before I'm too old to run after them. Right now we have grand dogs, too. The raggedies' eyes I think came out perfect. You know I adore everything you do. Take care and happy sewing.
    Warm Regards,
