I opened a new online shop http://www.tonyastemptations.artfire.com/ I need to stock it more but it's up and running. Go and take a look-see. It's much like etsy. I'm not sure what the big difference is yet, I think it has something to do with seller fees being less.
And I've been sewing! I've delved into a new adventure-- American Girl Doll clothes. Some for lil lady and some to sell. Let me know what you think! Here are two samples:
(hey, that pic above has cut out the matching AGD peasant dress.. aw..!!Try this link.)
This below is what's refered to as an "UFO" *unfinished object* I've had this little number sitting in my sewing room for a while. And now, with the new and improved sewing room , I've been able to get all kinds of projects completed. This is an Olivia dress made from flannel. How fun!!
I also made TWO tops for myself, four pairs of panties for lil lady, more matchy girl and Am. Girl Doll clothes, a long ago cut out pair of pj bottoms for me, and whatever else I can't remember! I've been a bit amazed at how seamlessly (lil pun there) all of it's been going together and how much quicker I am at getting things accomplished. Yay me!
We also have been bogged down with very cold weather, lots of snow and ice. Not to mention many library trips, wonderful homeschool classes, and lessons of our own. Not a bad winter, if I don't say so myself. I think the respit in my own house.. my oasis.. really makes life happier for all of us.
I say that now but it's only the beginning of Feb.. many months of cold yet to go!!
