Happy New Year!

Wow what a Holiday Season! It seemed like nothing but busy, busy, busy all throughout November and December. I was able to get in a little bit of sewing and creating during the last two months but definitely not what I would have liked. So now it's time for a little Show and Tell to catch you up on the projects I did get done.

My big (and only) accomplishment was making these 3 dolls for these sweet little girls! They were much easier to make than I anticipated and I really enjoyed it! Now I am in the process of making them some clothes! lol The dresses they are wearing came with the girls Christmas dresses that my MIL sent.


In their PJ's! Made these out of scrap fabric I had in my stash.


The other project I started working on is my Layer Cake quilt. Last Monday I set a goal to finish 10 quilt blocks and I did it! I'm loving how they are turning out. Only 10 more to make so I can start on the sashing.


And last but definitely not least is some news. I made my first sale on Etsy! Yay! On my to do list is to add more items to the shop.

My New Years Resolution for my sewing is to finish up my WIP quilts before starting a new one. My list of WIP is as follows:

1. Layer Cake Quilt
2. Sister's Quilt
3. Caleb's Quilt
4. Table Topper Quilt
5. Doll Quilt
6. Living Room Quilt
7. Flamingo Quilt

Yeah I think that's all of them. =)

I hope you have had a Happy New Years!!

PS: Thank you for all the well wishes on my last post! I really appreciate the prayers. Sorry I didn't respond to them sooner for some reason the comments weren't getting emailed to me like normal so I didn't see them til today. I've fixed the problem and should be getting my comments when you post them again. My Dad is doing good! The Chemo is working. The tumors on his liver and abdomen are shrinking. The one in his lower intestines they are not able to see if it is shrinking or not but they think it is since the others are. Thank you again for your prayers!


  1. Your dolls are adorable--although not as much as those three "live" dolls! I've enjoyed looking at all your projects.

    In your profile you say, "I spend each day trying to learn how to be the best, Christian, wife, mother, and homemaker that I can be." This, I believe, is what life should be.

  2. So glad your dad is doing better...I will continue to pray for your family! :)
    The dolls are soooo cute!! My oldest got an American Girl doll from Santa...any doll clothes sewing tips are accepted!!
    Good luck with your list...I am sure you will manage to get it all accomplished!!
