A Little Sweetness.......

I absolutely love Tasha Noel's etsy shop and her fabric that she has designed.......http://www.etsy.com/shop/alittlesweetness.  I placed a custom order a little while back and received some of her fabrics.  They are as adorable as I knew they would be.  I  have made 2 doll quilts with it so far and plan on making a baby quilt and a toddler quilt with what  I have left. I can just imagine a child picking out the different things in each square that they love.
My little Emma from Moonchild Studio is looking at the little girl in the red cape. :-)





So adorable.....I may just make myself a quilt with it!
Take care,
Cathy

A little Studio Organizing

I came across this wonderful blog and found this great method for folding fabrics......http://cuttopieces.blogspot.com/2011/02/fabric-folding-tutorial.html.  Placed an order with Amazon to get 200 comic book backer boards.....free shipping of course and went to work.  I am in love. It looks so nice and I am able to store so much more fabric on my shelves.  Happy, Happy, Happy!!!

 Most of this is doll clothes fabrics but I also use quilting fabrics.
 Cute little storage shelf form Target....
 Love the way the fatquarters are folded and  stored. I believe they are mesh CD bins.
My work table by my sewing table.  I have an U shaped work area with the work table on my right, an ironing table on the left and my sewing machine table at the head. That way with a swivel chair everything is at my fingertips. I just have to remember to get up and move around though.

Off to work on a few custom dolls and a quilt for moi!
Take care,
Cathy

July already and a 12" doll giveaway

I have to say I am more of a winter person than summer person, mainly because of the heat and mosquitoes here in my area of Virginia. But, it is hard to believe that tomorrow will be the 4th of July!

I have been making dolls as usual and a few baby quilts. I saw a bowtie quilt along and decided to  make that a project for this summer. The quilts looks so neat the way a lot of people have their  blocks facing.








I am going to have another giveaway....hopefully my doll from June has made her way to her new home. She was caught in Canada's Postal strike.  :-(

This time the doll will be a little 12" doll with a smocked dress.  The dress will be a different fabric from this ( since I am almost out of this)  and the winner is welcome to choose hair and eye color.  If you would like to be included please leave your name in the comment section.  I will pull a name next Sunday night.

I hope everyone is doing well,
Cathy
