i took pictures of the swap goodies i sent out for this swap and then forgot completely to upload them once my partner got her stuff.. so here are a couple of what i think are the highlights of the swap

here’s amberglas modelling the mad hatter hat and key necklace.
mad hatter
she thought it was a leprechaun hat and started step dancing.

noni had to checkout the quilt.
trying out the quilt
she didn’t want to let it go till i promised to make her a pink one, “which you still haven’t done” she pipes up.

early as i got up this morning, someone else was up first. i came downstairs to see noni sitting on my sewing machine. do you have pink ones made yet? she queried. i NEEDS pink!

working on a pjs pattern

i want to make the girls new pajamas for christmas. i found a really cute red knit with white snowflakes on it to make them with. but first i have to get a pattern that fits.

noni volunteered to be my model for the little girls on the condition that i make her a pair of pink ones, since that is her “favoritist” color.

i made the first trial from a lovely soft blue cotton velour. unfortunately it was just to bulky for the wee ones.
first try
noni said they were way too hot, and not PINK!

next i tried a lightweight knit. the fabric is from a jersey sheet i got cheap to use as test fabric. the pattern is printed crooked so it really doesn’t work for anything else. i realized after i sewed them up that i did the bottoms on the “wrong” side and the top on the “right”. oh well they are just to test for fit anyway.
i think the legs need to be a smidge longer. when i made them snugger in the crotch it cut a bit too much off the leg length.

noni says they are much more comfortable but still NOT PINK!

then she noticed the elastic hanging down the back.

look she said
i gots a tail

noni is happily modeling a mix and match set of clothes i made for a swap.
smilga top skirt
the hat is a very bright pink mohair that was hard to capture on film. it matches much better in real life. the ribbon is hand dyed silk, the skirt is cotton and the t-shirt a cute cotton knit print i found.  she is also wearing the the short leggings n this photo but you can’t see them.

smilga top capris

so here they are.

smilga dress and leggings

a sundress and longer leggings, which i apparently forgot to photograph before sending them off.  the are turquoise blue with darker blue/purple dots

smilga jacket and dress

and if she is chilly, the t-shirt can be reversed to make a short jacket.

blowing kisses

noni and beezie blow kisses to their friends. they’ve been exploring the garden and beezie found a bee-yu-ti-ful flower. don’t let her demure look fool you, i had to bribe her to wear a dress and even then she adamantly refused to take off her goggles!

fabric picking

i meant to add this post before smilga’s gift arrived and i posted the finished quilt. instead you get to see the “before” shot, after. 😆

i’m doing a swap with someone, a quilt for a crocheted dress. it’s a fun idea and the girls helped me pick out the fabric. they were busily diving through a bin of fabric looking for just the right ones. beezie is determined that the best fabric is down below, just waiting to be discovered, noni keeps get side-tracked. “this is pretty she exclaims, “i’d like something out of this….” she looks up beseechingly. ellyce is determined to keep them on track. “she SAID she wanted PINK!” she firmly instructs the other two.
