"My computer is *always* slow—I suffer the Agony of Dial-Up here, because we're too cheap to spring for DSL. (Of course, that means I can buy more fabric . . . ) I'd love to get Eliza a real American Girl, but they are beyond my…"

"No problem about when you reply...I stay busy too and get online when I can. Our computer seems to be running slow lately. =( I think our daughter will be getting our grand-daughter an Amercian Girl doll soon. I like sewing for those dolls more than…"

"I'm sewing for an 18" American Girl-type—actually, for two of them. Bella and Sara, and I try to make them clothes with scraps left from Eliza's clothes. I'll post pictures in a little. (Sorry to be so long answering; we…"

"What kind of doll are you sewing for? My grand-daughter has a premie Cabage Patch...I made her some new clothes for her birthday. Need to make her a few more things. Happy sewing today. =)"

"It's raining here, too—rain all day yesterday, and so far today too. Yesterday we went to a library book sale; today I am sewing, no matter what! My granddaughter's dolls were promised new clothes last month . . ."

I never thought of asthma causing a rash! Sorry, and sorry about the computer woes . . . but it's finally spring! And aren't things lovely? Brian, Lara and Emma came up on Saturday, but everyone else was either too far away or working, so I spent a blissfully lazy Easter. It's rained so far this week, and I have been catching up on some sewing odds & ends. I'm sort of creatived-out after the flamingo . . .

Wow that sounds terrific =D

I have to find some time to get my sewing room together; I am now working full time and it is hard to find free time now a days.

Now that spring has sprung, I will make time. I really miss my sewing machine.

I'm back! After a bout of the Spring Ick, or something, I am back among the living and sewing. How's spring going down your way? I've made an Easter bunny for one granddaughter (grandsons prefers dinosaurs at this point, and I didn't feel up to making one of *those* this year), and am working on an Easter flamingo for the other. Happy Easter!

My computer is *always* slow—I suffer the Agony of Dial-Up here, because we're too cheap to spring for DSL. (Of course, that means I can buy more fabric . . . ) I'd love to get Eliza a real American Girl, but they are beyond my means, so I shop Ebay—and if she has any Barbies, they will not be clothed by me. I went through that when my daughter was in the Barbie stage, and I will never, ever make any more tiny clothes. (At least I don't think so.) 18" is a nice size to sew for; still small enough not to use loads of material, but big enough to work on without pulling one's hair out. Sun's out here, too—we spent the morning walking down by the river, but now I must vacuum and clean the bathroom and think of something for supper. :( Hope you're having a good day, Anita

(Sorry to be so long answering; we spent one day visiting my MIL in the nursing home, and another doing laundry . . . )

Mrs. Nibbles is a pattern by Rainie Crawford (she doesn't have a online address that I can find; I ordered this pattern 20-some years ago). She's a pajama bag, and she actually is supposed to have five little baby bunnies in blankets that she can hold in her arms, but I wasn't industrious enough to make them. Maybe later . . .

Hi, Mimi—thanks for your compliments on the coffee cup wrapper. I closed it with Velcro, but I thought about a button or a snap (since I made it fit one particular style of cup where the husband gets coffee frequently). With velcro, though, it would be more adjustable.

Thanks Mary...I'm trying to warm up today, we are 22 degress below normal for this time of year. Two more days and it's suppose to be out of here. =) I do not like cold temps. Thanks again for the welcome. Waving to you from the south, where are you?
