KCWC 2012 Final Post

I had family issues  come up
at the last minute, so I never posted the
remaining sewing projects from KCWC 2012
Day 2
I sewed a dress for Granddaughter E's 1st birthday.
Day 3-5, I was busy with family,
so I did lots of crocheting of baby caps
and cutting out of charity clothing
Day 6 was finishing birthday clothing
for Granddaughter E
2 new Summertime tops!
I really enjoyed the KCWC Sewalong
and plan to do it again in the Fall!

April Stash busting report

I think I got my sewing mojo back in swing
during the month of April.

I have sewn Grand children's
and charity children's clothing this month,

Fabric purchased during April: 0 yards
Fabric purchased during 2012: 0 yards

Fabric used during April: 18.5 yards
Fabric donated during April: 10 yards
Fabric used during 2012: 50.5 yards

Yahoo! I am half way towards my 2012 goal
of using 100 yards, and I still have
8 months of sewing to do it!

My stash busting goal for May is to keep sewing
Grandchildren and charity clothing and
use up a large IKEA bag of fabric and
scraps I have designated as Spring/Summer fabrics.

How are you doing?

KCWC sew-a-thon: day1

This is my accomplishment for Day 1 of the sew-a-thon

I shortened the length of the dress,
since it runs very long.

I also crocheted the hat.

Now to plan for Day 2.....

Dolls from my childhood

Continuing with the great house clean out of 2012,
I tackled some of my personal items today.

When I was a child,
I traveled around the World with my parents.
I loved dolls, so I filled my suitcase
with at least one doll from each country.

Today, I cleaned out those dolls....40 years later.

I have put most up for sale online,
but I am keeping these ones for sentimental reasons,

Left to right:
Doll from Hawaii,
Doll from Africa (a gift from a friend)
Doll from Italy.
Doll from Germany (gift from my brother)

Ready to feel free and airy again in my life.
Much more cleaning out to do....
