a rug completed

  • Posted on June 14, 2015 at 9:27 pm

i chose to complete the rug by trimming the edge back to about 5 rows past the stitching line, cutting a wedge out of the corner to cut down the bulk, then folding it back and satin stitching around the edge with a very narrow stitch in the pink.. after that i used a loose whip stitch and stitched the edging down flat to the back, catching only a stitch or two at a time so it wouldn’t show through on the front. now it looks just like the full sized rugs i have in my house, and the little girls are thrilled. crystal is showing it off here
The finished rug
after i was done someone pointed me to a great tutorial on how to finish rugs, so rather than re-inventing the wheel, i’ll just link to it here

dolly a day july 2-4

the second day and already i’m behind, but i had a specific image in my head for the word “blanket” and i just couldn’t let it go. it took this long to finish the pajamas i needed to make it work.
after i took the picture though, i saw the reflections in the floor and decided i would rather use this picture for that theme ( i do have three days to catch up after all ;))

so i used this one instead for “blanket”.

and of course how can you have a blanket without a “pillow”?

btw the pj’s are the prototype for my newest line on etsy .

doll a day july challenge

trying a new doll a day challenge. i’ll have to see how many days we can get this month. my record is only 11 so it shouldn’t be too hard to beat should it? we’ll see though…
anyway today’s word was secrets and i caught emrys and noah spying on crystalorn and alys as they whispered secrets to each other on the front porch. seemed perfect to me…

diving in

she was wide eyed at all the goodies
this is all for me?

a pretty felt jumper for those cooler summer evenings, we get a lot of those up here.

a cute capri jupsuit in her favorite color

and a shorty set she couldn’t decide if she was supposed to wear to the beach or to bed , so decided she was just wear it for both! 😆 she also got the stuffie, pillow and cute wig in her favorite of course!

amber and crystal helped me mail the swap parcels and these are the pictures we took at the post office to prove they were mailed. the girls sat on the mailing labels to protect the identity of their partners

crystalorn and amberglas are taking part in a swap on doa, with a couple of other tinies. crystal has already made a new bff, since her partner loves pink, flowers and lace as much as crystal! she is taking amber in hand since amber’s partner is also rather girly and she says amber is a great sister, but she just doesn’t understand pink! 😆

here the two of them are ready to go down into the basement to look for swap fabric. they put on their hiking boots, and crystal insisted on taking her flashlight, even though we have lots of light in the basement. they are ready for serious work!
