Then There Were Two!!

I've been so busy lately. I worked extra during the week so I could have yesterday off. I get most of my sewing done when I'm home alone and everyone else is at work. My whole family went to Comic Con Boston yesterday. It's a long day of walking around. It's fun but tiring. I haven't had a chance to sew anything for a few days. I did manage to finish the second ball of fabric strips for the second jelly roll rug. I have to play around with my zigzag stitch and just start sewing! They recommend a specific stitch width.

Does anyone remember the old Thumbelina dolls? Thumbelina was my favorite doll when I was little. My husband bought me a new one years ago and I always put her on my bed. I think Lily likes her too! I love how she has her little paw on her leg! She sure looks comfy!

    1. Thanks, Dawn! You're right! That would be a great picture for pets on quilts! I'll have to remember.

  4. Can't wait to see how these balls of fabric turn into rugs. That last pic of Molly curled up with the doll is worthy of framing. I remember the last doll I had (before I got to old for a baby doll) It was similar to yours, but I don't think it was called "Thumblina". It had a soft stuffed body and plastic head/arms/legs like yours though.

    1. I'll be starting those rugs soon! My mother decided I was too old for dolls and threw out my poor Thumbelina! I was so happy to see I could get one all these years later! I guess I still like dolls!!
