Gettin' caught up on Quilts!!!!

I found the perfect pattern for Caroline's quilt....bought the fabric...cut the fabric...only to find that the dimensions she gave were off....big-time.  So I had to re-figure some of the quilt...it is nothing like the way it should have been, but I like the way it came out!

New Line...Girls Going Green

Those that know me know I'm a bit of a horder....I love fabric...ribbon...buttons, you name it....and have amassed LOTS....I have been working to organize and clean out my studio, and decided I need to tap into some of this wonderful STUFF.  So my newest line was conceived....Girls Going Green....in an attempt to Reduse, Re-use and Recycle.  I also love saving articles of clothing that either were never worn or are just perfect vintage!!!!  My first outfit is a Land's End Golf shirt my hubby got that was a size too big...and a color he hates....so it was perfect to save for this.  The jeans are a pair of my sons' that I loved the way they wore, but he outgrew them.  Kirsen always loves being the first to model a new line!!!!  She looks GREAT!!!!

It was Addy's turn to model for my Downton Abbey line......I had the perfect outfit for her to try on.....White blouse with lace trim on the neck, sleeves and front. Pretty blue skirt, with trim at the hem, and matching cropped jacket. Over it all is a vest type arrangement that I found while looking at fashion for the Victorian lady.
