Baby's New Wardrobe.......

Emily (my 11 yr. old) has been having so much fun dressing this 5" baby doll of hers!!! I think she has 5 outfits completed now. I mentioned another one a bit ago. Today I jokingly asked her how long it takes to complete an outfit...."1 day?" She quickly corrected me with......"no...2 days!"

And so there are no concerns...baby has all her proper undergarments on too. Isn't she adorable? Emily uses size 10 crochet thread in various colors and a size 6 crochet hook to complete these little gems. She also has one or two that she knitted with size 3 needles. I'll try to get photos of the rest of the fun little outfits in the next few days or so.

In the meantime, I am thinking on a new tutorial. Hopefully I will get it started and finished in the next few days. It's been awhile since I've added any tutorials to the blog. It's not for lack of ideas but rather a lack of time. Ean is very mobile now and as a result my sewing time has come to a screeching halt. I'm hoping he'll slow down and become interested in his toys at some point...and then I'll be able to sit at the machine and sew again. Right now if I want to sew I have to wait until everyone is tucked into bed and hope that I am not completely exhausted...which is usually the case. I am smocking though, whenever a few random minutes come my way. I'm really curious to see how this dress is going to turn out for my Elisabeth.

Alright...time to finish dinner and get this family fed!
