So, the camera works fine. Yup, did you know that there should be software involved when your trying to upload photos from a new camera ? Not normally something I would miss but after eight weeks alone with four kids, I'm not exactly functioning at my best. Yeah, I think I'll be using that excuse for awhile. :)
This is the package I sent to Heather for the Mini Quilt in a Bag Swap. Nothing like a little procrastination. I decided to add the piece of vintage dresser scarf that I embroidered the night before the package went out. Sorry for the wait Heather! The pattern is of course from the Hoop Love group on flickr. Good stuff over there if you like vintage. Heather will be making a mini quilt to send back to me out of these materials. She picked out some great stuff for her own mini which I received a little while ago. Heather sent tons of Katie Jump Rope fabric and some great trim too. I've already got an idea in the works for that one!
Thanksgiving weekend seemed like a great time to start a few more Christmas gifts. The dress and swingy little shirt will be for Miss Mimi. Both are really cute simple patterns which probably would have been done already if I hadn't sewn one of the ruffles on upside down. See first paragraph for my standard excuse.The red and white is a super soft flannel and the pink paisley is baby cord.
Wrapping up for today is a very poorly lit pic of a quick linen and wool pillow I made from a thrifted embroidery. The couch needed a little sprucing up for the holidays.
