What I’m Working on Today

Hello and, depending on where you live, good morning or good evening!

I took a photo of my desk this morning and wanted to show you the progress on Patsy’s Christmas outfit.  I think that this is the last I can make out of this simple red/green pin dot.  I made two dresses for the Little Darlings out of this 1/2 yard piece of fabric last year and didn’t think there was enough for another dress, but Patsy is small, so there was just enough width and length to cut out her skirt.  Here is a link to Gina’s ensemble from last year.  (Both dresses for Gina were the same.)

I made a quick little drawing of how I want to embroider Patsy’s sweater.  I’ll also need to run to the store for red ribbon; the shade I have is too blue, and I’d like to use organza.  I’m not sure yet what kind of beads I’ll use for the sweater buttons, maybe pearls.  The tiny green buttons are for the dress.  I’m thinking a bow or headband for her hair, but I will see.

That’s all for now my dear readers.

Thank you sooo much for all of your comments; I love them!!!

    Love the little dot print, especially for the Xmas season. Refreshing.
    My poor dollies need me to drag out the Halloween costumes for them soon. And then there is still Thanksgiving to come.
    Busy time of the year.

      Hello Joy,
      I’m kind of sad that this is the end of this dot print, it’s very feminine and festive. Thank you for reminding me that there are still many days until Christmas. Have fun dressing your dollies for Halloween and Thanksgiving!

      Hi Catherine,
      I love dot prints too. They are a close second to florals for me. Hopefully I work some more on it today. I had errands yesterday, so didn’t get too much done.

      Hi Yolanda,
      Awww, thanks so much. I hope I can do Patsy justice. I don’t think that I have ever made her something for Christmas, this will be her first.

    I love the photos of your surroundings and your workshop…they are just as inspiring as your designs. Cutest little polka dot fabric! Amelia would love that…hint hint..LOL

      Hello Pennie,
      So happy you enjoy my day-to-day photos. Amelia would love a fabric dress from me, but I’m afraid my sewing machine would eat up something that tiny. LOL I will have to stick to knits for Amelia Thimble.

      Hi Regina,
      Hopefully, I can make a bit more progress on her outfit today. I got caught up in errands yesterday, but I did manage to find red ribbon in the right shade. 🙂
