As the leaves turn...

Where has the time gone??? Summer did NOT turn out the way I had planned! We had an emergancy surgery shortly after my last post, and then right after, I found out I am expecting!!! So crafting got left a bit in the dust with all the excitement around here! But, I am back on track with my sewing!

As I sit here, listening to Christmas music and watching the leaves on the oak just outside my sewing room window, smelling the (decaf) coffee brewing, I am putting the finishing touches on my little Annie Angels, the dolls themselves at least! Their angel dresses, made of tone on tone muslin, are coffee dye-ing right now, and then I will pop them in the oven for drying. They will have little crinolines made from the same tulle that I used for my daughter's prom dress--Darling! I am also working on my other ornies and tucks as well... I have ticking stars with quilted stars stitched on with black threads, sets of graduated stars for tucking into those special holiday spaces,  fabric candy canes to display with the stars or grace your tree, gingerbread and snowmen ornies, as well as embroidered ornies. Such fun! I also have some larger Annies all dressed and pressed and ready to share your holidays with you!

Also in the works, I have mug rugs, some quilted pieces and some knitted goodies--Oh My!

Well, my friends, have a wonderful day!
