We went to shops ranging between 1.5 and 2 hours from home - places where some of us wouldn't drive to especially, but might stop if passing through.
Ok, here's the damage (really not too bad at all):
shop 1: Paper dolly fabrics.
The large dolls can have a stiff interfacing ironed onto the back, then cut out.
The clothes can have felt ironed onto the back and the tabs removed. This way the clothes grab onto the bodies a bit.
I bought the multi print for a bag to keep some of the dolls or their clothes in.
Here's a question for you: Should I make dolls (to do what with???) or should I use the doll fabric in a quilt where the girls can still be dressed up with the clothes.
shop 2: pins
shop 3: I was very good, I just drooled.
shop 4: magnets and labels
The flying duck fridge magnets remind me of the decorative pieces that hang on the walls. I have always liked them (Mum hates them).
There are a lot of labels - you can see only half of them.
So cute.... too bad I already put a label onto the baby quilt I just finished!the bus:
And here is a job I finished on the bus. Binding on! Quilt finished (except for the full name of my cousin's baby), I need confirmation of the middle name.
I also finished the spring rabbits, but I want to show it to you when it's on the wall. I will ask DH where I can put a hook when he is home from work.
So, a PIG comes in (paper dolls) and a UFO goes out (Dick and Jane baby quilt). Quite a successful day, really. VBG.
