For the purpose of taking some pictures I moved some furniture and removed 2 circus elephants. I shouldn't have. I got told off big time. Have to remember, it is their dollhouse - not mine. Will put it all back as it was now. No time to write more.

I would love to make more of these. Only I did not create a pattern. I just spent an afternoon playing around with some left over fabric. Not sure I'll be able to retrace my steps.

She disappeared into her room with an idea.
Hours later she reappeared with a huge grin on her face, a brand new guitar in her hands and a very urgent request. 'I need you to help me attach the strings. Now!'
I dropped everything immediately to help her because I understand. When I need her help to try the fit I can't wait either. And I should know how to be patient at my age.
The pattern for the top is from Happy Homemade vol. 2 - same as this one.

We can't leave the baby at home. What if it starts crying and we are not there?
And the baby doll pram is just not very practical. With a baby doll carrier you can eat ice cream and carry the baby at the same time. Unbeatable.
If only I had known, I would have made a baby doll carrier much sooner. Her big sister has placed an order, too.

The top picture shows a new skirt and T-Shirt I made which she put on especially for me so that I could take a picture. The bottom picture shows how she actually walked out of the door.
The sweater is an old favourite.

In the past few days I have started to do some sewing again, just to clear my head and to feel I know what I am doing, if only for a little while.
This is my new plan, when it all gets too much, I'll just sit down, draft a pattern and get sewing.
Good timing, because that big daughter of mine really does need some new clothes.
