Waiting for spring

I have been doing some sewing. Just waiting for spring. Doll dresses, baby quilt, and hand work.The American girl doll dresses were fun to make. I needed to tweek the pattern to make it easy for Justine to sew.

 This doll has been waiting for a dress for over a year.
 The baby quilt is made of flannel.It did not machine quilt well but after it is washed it will be better.
 I found this vintage bonnet in my stash. The edges were frayed. I had some vintage trim that matched in color really well so I hand stitched it on the edge. Perfect.

Making more hexes. Hoping to do at least one a night. Ziva keeps me company while I sew.

 She is ever vigilant at the window or door watching for those pesky squirrels. Hope everyone has a good week. j
