~ Pick, Cut, and Dry ~

I had a great "down time" during Christmas and began recharging the old battery... Sometimes it's very hard to get motivated and moving again while recharging but I finally decided last week that if I applied myself and started immediately... I could make the "Winter in the Valley" show in February... So I committed to it and have kicked everything into high gear now... I think at times I have slipped into auto-pilot these last few days...cutting and sewing in my sleep! As always, I keep adding new ideas on my list, making things more complicated ...I just hope it all comes together and gets finished on time! Today we had a nice sunny and warm day so the drying rack was pulled out and loaded down... now it's onto the next step!!


My color palette again this year is going to be shades of brown and blue...I have fallen in love with this color combination and can't seem to pull myself away from it...If I ever find the time, I want to make a brown and blue quilt...or two. Right now, I just keep collecting more and more shades of brown and blue for colonial and early doll dresses...a wonderful job!!

Take Care,

I love your blues and browns. You have the most beautiful fabric. I wish I lived closer to you to go to the show. Have fun! Mary

Oh...that stack of fabric is absolutely GORGEOUS! Funny, years ago, I was never much of a blue or brown fan - now I can't get enough of it - and put the two together, and I'm absolutely smitten! Good luck getting ready for the show! Wish it were close enough to go to! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin
