Hi there! I have to laugh at the title of this post because I haven’t made too much. My goal is to make two ensembles each month and I haven’t even finished one for March. ugh…
For the last 3+ weeks I have had tooth pain. Dealing with that consumed a hugechunk of brain power. After a lengthy time of figuring out which tooth was causing the pain I am finally pain free and am ready to get back into my sewing room. BTW, I’ve had two root canals this month–both needed, but only one causing the current pain!
My other monthly goal which I feel is more important than things for my dolls are the dresses I make for real little girls that I add to my Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes. I make two dresses a month. Yesterday I almost finished both; I will finish up the second one today. In case you’ve missed photos of these dresses here is what I completed last year.
Now on to what I’ve made for my dolls…
March is the perfect time for pretty greens. My Ruby Red Fashion Friend Holly, originally 2020 Holiday Stella, will be modeling this cardigan very soon. It is knit with sage green bamboo crochet thread (#10), which is sadly discontinued. The colorful embroidery coordinates with the fabric I made the dress out of. It is a happy and colorful print made.
To complete this set for Holly I must decide on either a hair ribbon or sun hat, tights or anklets, bouquet or bag, and beads for a bracelet. Then, happy little Holly will be ready to jump into her new spring ensemble and show you what I’ve made for her! Fingers crossed it is very soon.
The daffodils have started to grow here in northern Illinois. They come up along the roadside and profusely in a neighborhood park. I have a few in my yard too. No daffodil blooms yet, but very soon I am sure. What is blooming by you?
Wishing you a perfect end to March and a beautiful beginning to April. 🤗❤️ Take care, my friends.
