Shopping in my basement

For years I had my sewing craft rooms in the basement. We then had a flood in 2008. The rooms are now used for storage. Every thing is on shelves above a flood stage. I had a request for information on a doll I made and needed to go down and search for that information. I did not find it but I did find a few things I had forgotten I had. I found the yard sticks I want attached to the edge of my new cutting table. I also found a sweet dress and a doll purse.

The dress is one I bought somewhere 2nd hand. It had never had the closures put on. I pressed it and added snaps to the wrists and back. It is perfect for the china I recently gave a new body. She needs a broach or bead necklace. I will work on that soon.

 I also found a doll purse I bought off e-bay. Don't even remember buying it. It was still in the shipping box, said it was from NY state.
 I had a doll purse as a child. Not the same as this one. A good memory. Making salsa today. Lots of tomatoes off those 6 plants. Have a great week. j

Sorry about the water in your basement. This is the first time ever we've had a basement and it is packed with everything! That's a sweet little dress. I have a little china doll head but didn't know what to do with it. I guess I could make her a body? Did you use a pattern. The little purse it adorable. Don't you love to find things you forgot you had?
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Love the china head doll. So nice that you completed the outfit. Always fun to find something forgotten and put away. Both dolls are great.
