No such thing as 'too much fabric' . . .

Profile Information

I am an awesome:
I make things, grow things, cook things, very occasionally clean things, and tend the fire . . . and I sew. A lot. (But I'm retired, and I can do that. Don't hate me.)
My sewing interests are:
garment, doll making, home decor, cross stitch, embroidery
My sewing machine(s):
Viking Classica 105, my trusty partner-in-crime; also a Viking Sophia as a backup. I have a Featherweight, and my great-grandmother's Singer treadle, but haven't gotten around to doing anything with either of them yet. This winter, for sure . . .
I am interested in patterns such as:
Oh, I like them all. (But I make very few adults' clothes; mostly things for my grandchildren.) Recently discovered Ottobre and the Japanese pattern books . . .

Thanks Anita! I just love your soft sculpture dolls! I think I will have to put learning how to make them on my to do list.

I showed a friend of mine your soft sculpture dolls also. he's an art teacher. He seems to think that a local gallery here would probably do a show for you
I love the gargoyle the best but I know that's already gone. I also like sally, firecracker and the flamingo. I like the cat also.

You truly do have a talent with your soft sculpture dolls. They all have such personality.
If you ever decide to sell any, please let me know. I'd love to have one.

You have some very nice things in your slide show. Love the apron and the doll with the checkered feet. I had no idea this site was like this. By the way, my daughter just moved to Ashville. Granddaughter just loves downtown art district.

My daughter loves to dress 'girly' too. She's in a twirly skirt today. :o) I see you're in of my favorite cities. We try to visit at least once a year. Do you ever go to MaryJo's in Gastonia? I'm planning a trip there next week. Can't wait!

I bought my daughter a doll for Christmas on e-bay once too. It was one they used to make in the 80's. They were so cute! They were felt covered. Very unusual & something you wouldn't see in a store. My kids are used to getting things from charity shops so unlike me as a kid, they don't mind getting that kind of thing for Christmas.
Spaking of scarves, I should get knitting!

Thanks for your organizing tips...I was cracking UP about the fabric in the hallway. I think you're right, it really doesn't help curb the fabric appetite to see it in tubs all stacked in the hall! Congrats on getting all that vintage fabric. Do you have a favorite? I LOVE vintage fabric!

I'm sorry you have a cold! Hopefully you'll heal up quickly.
With sewing I definitely go through phases like that. Sometimes it's one thing, sometimes another. I like the quick result with the toys I think.
I have a blast with the toy drop-offs too!

Your bags are really cute & the slippers?? Fabulous!!! The American girl clothes...oooh my daughter would love them! Do you sell them?

I found out I have was causing me to have a bad rash. Crazy, never heard of that. I had computer problems too. $120.00 later hoping all is fixed. Glad you are feeling better. I've had company from Mi and the Grand-kids have been on Spring Break. We dyed eggs the other day. The family is coming for dinner and an egg hunt on Sunday. Hope you have a Happy Easter. I know your grands will love their gifts.

Yes, I agree 18" is a good size. I bought our grand-daughter, Raegan her first sewing machine for Christmas. It a toy type, but it does sew. The Needle is incased, so she can't get hurt. I think she is pretty into it and she's creative and loves to make things and do crafting too. Her little brother asked me why I didn't get him one? LOL I wants to do everything his big sister does. They are 17 months apart in age. I'm working on a tablecloth for a 2' x 4' table for my dd. She is hosting a hairbow party next Tuesday and wants a frilling cover. I'm adding toile too. I sew and she makes hairbows. Little Raegan is always dressed to match. Have a wonderful weekend. Hugs, Mimi

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 for Barbie...she's just to tiny. LOL Have a great day. The sun is shinning here finally. Hugs, Mimi

Thanks for adding me as your friend. We have a nephew that lives in Asheville. We toured the Biltmore House last Christmas. So beautiful. I'm northeast of Atlanta near Athens. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Mimi (Denise)

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. =)

Thanks Anita, I was thinking it had to be Velcro. Have a great weekend...great day to sew, it's rainy here. I've altered a new T-shirt and added a front rosett today. Let's see what's next.... =)
