It has been a really busy week here for Mommy. She was helping Granny find a retirement home to move into, and then, she spent time making up a few crocheted things.
This is a dress for a china head doll Mommy made this week for a friend. She made it without the doll, just using the doll’s measurements, so she is really hoping it will fit dolly well! Unfortunately, we won’t know for a few weeks, until it gets there by mail.
Mommy also started a sun dress for our Minouche sister, Demelza, but she didn’t get time to finish it, yet. We love the colour though, and bet Minouche will be really happy when it is finished.
Next week, Mommy is getting together with Auntie S., and they are going to make chicken quilts. They bought this pattern and the fabrics for the backgrounds and bindings, but we are going to help Mommy pick fabrics from her stash for the chickens themselves.
We found these oranges to use for the wattles and cockscombs. Mommy says they are usually red, but these oranges are so pretty, we think she should use them instead!
Do you like these green fabrics? We think a few chickens would look good in these two fabrics.
We think a chicken or two would suit these fabrics, too. After all, red and yellow are both summery colours, and chickens love warm weather – at least, we think they do?
Hmmm…Luna likes this one, but I’m not so sure whales and chickens go together all that well!
Okay, these would make for some fancy dancy chickens, all right! And after, maybe we will be able to convince Mommy to make us new dresses out of the left overs. 🙂
Of course, we could just go for some farmer checked fabrics. You can’t really go too wrong with the basics…
We’re going to keep looking, but we think we have a few possibilities from our search today. We sure hope Mommy and Auntie S. will let us help make their quilts next week. It looks like fun to us!
