Doll dresses and hexes.

This past week,the weather, has been so very nice. Cold some days but with sunshine it is ok. I did some sewing and we transplanted the tomatoes.100 tomato plants.
We will be able to furnish several people with tomato plants.I cut forsythia branches and they are blooming.
 The 2 dresses I sewed this past week are so cute. The patterned fabric is vintage hahaha I've had it since I started sewing crafts back in the 80's. It is just right for spring dresses. The tatting is a perfect trim. Now that I think of it,I think I might have made Hallie a jumper from one of these fabrics.

 the ecru cotton lace was just right for this vest.
 I found a bag of fabric pieces from my mother in law. It looks like she started a small hexie quilt. The pins had rusted into some of the fabric I will not be able to use some of the fabric but the rest is cut and the paper pieces are pinned. Ready to take along when we travel. I did a few last night. Love the blue and white fabrics.

 The last pictures are of some of the hexies i have done. Ready to make into blocks. Hand work is so relaxing.
Hope you all have a great week.j

Wow you must have a huge yard to transplant 100 tomato plants. I only can do 3, my garden id 85% partial sun. Love the dress and the fabric is really cute, and I also like the hexes! Have a great week!

Love your dolls dresses. They are so cute and perfect for Spring. I also enjoy seeing the hexie quilts. They always catch my eye.

Oh my goodness. I should have posted the tomatoes are not all for me. I have a list of friends and family that want them. I just happen to have a lot of seed saved from last year.
