Sewing Sunday

Hi! This weeks find was a small (I think size 6 in children) skirt with a beautiful floral pattern.I found it at a local thrift store for about $1.50? I misjudged the size and thought I could get 2 skirts out of it and it turned out I can barely get it on the doll.. Whoops! My camera battery was almost dying so I had to take a couple of pictures and then go charge it and then upload the pictures, so, I didn't get as many pictures as I had wanted to. Any way, here they are- 

Thanks for looking!

AGPC Challenge 2 Entry

Hi! The theme for this round is friends. When I found out what the theme was I had an idea of what I wanted to do, which rarely happens :) So the story behind this is Kirsten's best friend/sister is in the hospital and this picture is supposed to represent forever friends :) I really wanted to captured the sadness of a friend in the hospital and how caring best friends can be and how they are willing to help in times of need, it was kind of hard because the dolls are in a permanent smile so.. yeah. I had a lot of fun setting up this scene, Enjoy! 

 This is the picture I want for the round :)  I don't know if I will post Sewing Sunday today, maybe tomorrow.

Hello Fall!

I know that the first day of fall was yesterday, but, I didn't have time until today to post this,so, without further ado, Hello fall! 
Hi! Its Saige and a week ago we found this cute doll sized wreath at the thrift store for $1 and though it would be a perfect fall themed decoration. 

Here it is- 
Isn't it so cute?! 
 Here is me hanging it up...

 Positioning it just right....

There! What do you think?  

Happy Fall!

Sewing Sunday

Hi! So this is also one of my $0.50 finds and today I made a simple maxi skirt/dress, 2 in 1! I cut off the sleeves (it was a 12 month old dress) measured how long I wanted it to be , hemmed the edges and sewed the sides. Unfortunately, around the end my sewing machine started acting funny and I think it is broken:( I was going to take the pictures yesterday and then I realized I needed to take them today and it was almost dark :( Oh well, here are the pictures. 
 It definitely is a high waist skirt. (This is probably the only picture the turned out good)

 See!, 2 in 1. :)

Thanks for looking :)

Hi! This photo-story is basically about Rebecca's arrival, hope you enjoy! 
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------- It was a lazy Saturday morning, Mia and Felicity were discussing appropriate slippers for Saturday's, Saige was choosing an apple after riding and Kirsten was being productive by practicing her stretching.  

"So, you think pink is better than blue?" Felicity questioned as Mia leaned back  
Only three? Saige thought to herself, choosing an apple from the bowl 

"One, two, three, one, two, three..." Kirsten repeated, stretching her leg 

Nobody noticed an odd pile of boxes slowly scooting toward them... 

The very top package was slowly making its way off the pile, until... 

CRASH! Everybody turned wondering where the startling noise came from 
Felicity threw her hands up in surprise when she discovered who was their, Saige accidentally knocked the bowl of apples off the table and Kirsten fell straight onto her bed (at least it was a soft landing) and Mia just looked. Clearly, this was not a good impression. 
"Hi!", Rebecca said, "Sorry for the mess, as you can see I came with a lot." 

 After an awkward silence everybody rushed over, wondering why and how this person was here, Rebecca explained that she was going to be moving in with them but had to move a lot of stuff and since she did not know them, she didn't know weather they would help or not. 
"Hey!" Kirsten said, balancing on a stack of boxes, "We can put the boxes on the top of our closet.  

Soon the job was complete and Saige, after helping out them away, was very excited to try on all of the outfits. 

"So, these are all of yours?" Kirsten question, Rebecca nodded, "Lucky!" Kirsten replied "I didn't come with anything!" They both laughed as they helped Saige push the last of the boxes on top, Meanwhile...

Some of the items had fallen out, Mia and Felicity took the opportunity to try them out, "do you think they look good?" Mia asked Rebecca 

Rebecca giggled, "Yep, you look very fancy." She said "What is going on?" Marie Grace said, just coming back from the library. 

 *Awkward Silence*

Rebecca shyly stepped forward "Hi, I'm Rebecca and I am the newest member in the family."  

Phew, it was really intense their for a minute, Thought Rebecca 

Of course, everybody had to join in on the group hug.  

Group photo! Wow, 6 dolls :) Thanks for looking,
