Christmas was in London with my husband's family. It was a lovely family time with lots of bonding between my children and their cousins from Italy, England and the US.
Now I'm happy to be back and excited about the new year. Although I have a few new ideas, I am most excited about continuing along in a few directions that I have already started along last year.
Doll Dressmaking. Yes, there was a bit of a hiatus as we approached the holidays, but now that I am over the holiday order hump, we can resume. I think the dresses need some sleeves. So sleeves will be next. The next lesson will be this upcoming weekend.
I am looking forward to continuing with the Doll Friend Project and sewing a doll for a child in foster care for each Phoebe&Egg doll sold. One of my next tasks includes reaching out to additional foster care organizations to increase my list of children who need transitional objects/dolls. I would also like to start to reach out to organizations like the Girls Scouts and Councils on Aging to work their people to make additional doll clothes for these dolls.
A new project I would like to start is a series on making doll quilts. I'm sure all of you making doll clothes from scraps, have scraps from your scraps. I am not a quilter, but am going to teach myself with doll quilts and thought I'd turn my lessons and experiments into your lessons.
And of course there will be new dolls and doll clothing, but more about that in my next post.
Happy 2015 to all of you!!!
