This is a dress I made for to fit my daughters american girl doll, I enjoyed it so much that I made about 6 of them this past summer for friends, this was a pattern from the original American Girl dolls when Pleasent Company owned them, after the Mattel change-over they became hard to find. I beleive this was one of Felicity's Christmas dress patterns. I modified it a little to add some extra fun, I added the lace apron.

This is a quilt that I designed myself, I had no real way of knowing how big it was going to turn out , I just pieced and stitched....tweeking things as I went along. My kids helped pick out the poems and my oldest daughter helped with the embroidery. We were so happy with the end result! (I have to confess I wanted to curl up with it myself, but is was a christmas present). You can do amazing things with a $99.00 singer from walmarts!
I really like the idea of haveing a place to showcase my ideas and projects, and getting feedback!I am trying to figure out how to post pictures, I will have to make use of my good friend "B's" knowledge of blogging. I used up all of my patience last night trying to figure out the photo host idea.

Okay, thanks to my good friend I am going to try something new, she is very hip on blogging, and I have to confess that it is fascinating to glimpse into other peoples daily lives. Widget Worm was the nick name that my father gave me as kid, because I could not hold still.........I believe....or as I remember it. He is good at coming up with nonsensical things.........to this day I am mezmerized when he recites "Tale of the jaberwocky" by Lewis Carroll. I will have to post it sometime for those who have never heard it , it is no easy task.
