I'm home, now what!!

Well, we've been home for almost a week.  

After our 3+ day drive north, we've been busy with all kinds of errands.  unpacking, laundry, cleaning, groceries, dentist, Insurance, Taxes, more groceries and volleyball games.     We are finding it cold.   We wear two sweaters in the house all the time.    The air is dry.   I get nose bleeds easy.  

But it's nice to be back where my kiddos are.   I got some really good hugs this week.   It's hard to do that over Facetime!!   Miss Aurora is visiting us for the weekend.  We are spending a bit of time in my sewing room.

She has picked out 5 item of American Girl doll clothes outfits that she wants.   I have 5 Simplicity patterns.  She matched up each pattern with the fabric that she wants me to make the outfit out of.  It's all organized into ziploc a bag.  She has 5 kits ready for me.    

In between my regular projects next week, I'll pull out a ziploc bag and make one.    These doll cloths are a bit friggy to make, but I like making them because they are relatively quick.  The next time Aurora comes for a visit, she'll have some new doll clothes.  

She wanted me to show you the kits.

Lucky Aurora!!! :) Welcome home Gail. I was hoping you would bring some warm weather with you... did you have to leave it at the border?

Making doll clothes for a sweet grandaughter is so fun. I have become a little bit obsessed with it!
