But I haven't made much for her yet!! I made two beds for her, one is too small (which she loves) and the other (large) one I had to rip apart coz I needed more of "that" fabric for another item!!! Gosh I'm bayad.....poor Phoebe, she doesn't have a chance at keeping the clothes on her back! ;-)

When we left VB my girls were in elementary school. They're now 33 and 31!. My youngest is married with two little ones of her own (the littlest is in my lap in the picture). So it really was a loooong time ago! Then...I was a frazzled Navy wife. Now...I'm a happy grandma. BIG difference!! :)

Now I know which direction you were in. I remembered the Princess Anne SC and wasn't sure where Chimney Hill was. Since it was 24 years ago when we left VB, I guess I'm kind of foggy about your house. But, I'm also a gardener and love beautiful flowers, so I'm sure I noticed...way back when. :)

My favorite vintage fabric is gingham—the kind that's 100% cotton. Mom had some and gave it to me, and it's so wonderful to sew with! I always look for more, but the thrift stores here don't have much in the way of fabric. I also like that lightweight printed fabric with the woven lines in it—leno, I think it was called. I remember having a dress made from it when I was in my early twenties, and it makes lovely doll clothes, too.

I must say I can't remember for sure which was Chimney HIll SC. How far from VB Blvd. was Dana?

I'm not sure what you mean... without having to click on *what* ... the link to the papp, or something else? And in order to do what... (lol sorry I'm rushed today!)

Birdie - Take one of your old thongs and make a pattern from it. Once you try it, you'll never want to purchase panties again. I shop this great place in NC that has beautiful, good quality, wide stretch lace for 79 cents a yard. I can make 10 pairs of panties for under $10! You don't really need a pattern, but if you want a good one, I recommend Jalie 2568. I'll take pictures and post soon.

Too funny - we lived right off Rosemont Rd. on Clubhouse Dr. from '79-'83!! Bob, my husband, was stationed at both NOB and Little Creek. We moved to the King's Grant subdivision (not far from Rosemont) in '83 then moved up here in '86 where we've been ever since.

I'll definitely look for Ginny's Place. We like to go camping at Dam Neck in the summer so we're always looking for a place to stop on our way to and from. Thanks for the tip!

I've probably driven through it a thousand times on Rt. 17 heading down to Va. Beach from King George. I sure know where the bridge is at Gloucester. I used to live in VB. :)

I'm enjoying a quiet day at home sewing, college football playing in the background and my husband will cook me a steak on the grill for dinner. I call that being spoiled! :)

Where is Hayes, VA. I live on the Northern Neck of VA, King George County.

The yin yang bag is actually a patented pattern that I bought a license to sew and sell. I thought it was so cute!

Whereabouts do you live. I'm in Canada, we don't have Joann's here. They won't even accept an online order to be shipped to Canada. However, I do live about an hour from Niagara Falls N.Y., so I go there to Joann's. If you have a quilt store near you, they most likely have the boxes. (However, they'll be more expensive!) I didn't think anybody in the U.S. lived far from a Walmart or a Joann's. I see those 2 stores everywhere. However, I was in Texas last winter, & there wasn't a Joann's for 300 miles. But the Walmart nearby sold fabric & supplies

Thanks for the tip on ravelry...I have never heard of that site. I just got home from my knitting group. There is so much gabbing going on that very little knitting happens. Fun group but I tend to be 'task oriented' and always want to see some result for an evening out...I need to change that!!

Hi. I am happy to be your online friend. There is a group for plushie creators on this website. I enjoyed looking at your pictures. I think you can add photographer to your skills - very well done. My No. 1 passion is doll making right now - don't tell my garment sewing students that though lol...nice to meet you Birdie.

They are small, flat, clear, hinged plastic boxes. I wouldn't be surprised if you could get them at Walmart. You could also probably get them at a fabric shop. Maybe even eBay!
