Irene's birthday is in April, just about two months from today. I will be making her a birthday dress, for which I have purchased fabric and sort of planned it out in my head. I'll be getting to that later.
Right now I am working on 18 inch doll clothes for Irene's American Girl Doll, Julie. Here's what I just finished.
For Valentine's Day I gave Irene a long formal cape, or "cloak", as Irene called it, for Julie, to go over the long pink formal I made the doll for Christmas. I guess I didn't get a photo of the cloak.
And of course there was the matching dresses I made for Irene for Christmas.
These little projects are fun, and most are made with scraps from other projects.
I took Tom to the airport at 7:00 this morning and he is now on his way to Denver, where he will shuttle out to Fort Morgan. Tomorrow he will help Corey load up a U-Haul truck with the rest of the household furnishings, and then they will be driving across the plains and over the mountains to Seattle. We're all hoping for calm weather.
It's raining lightly here this morning, a good time for sewing. This afternoon I have been promised some sun breaks so I can get out for my walk.
With Tom gone, Josy is keeping me company, snuggled into a box of sewing supplies in a corner of the den closet.
