Kayla's Ruffly Cupcake Apron
Designed and stitched by yours truly. Lucy helped pick out fabrics that Kayla would like. Cupcake fabric on an apron... perfect!
Lucy's Soft Arm-Warmer Things
Lucy made these on my old Barbie knitting machine. I did the cast off and tacked one end to make separate holes for the thumb and other fingers. They were really fast to make and work great for extending the life of those summer dresses into the cooler days of Fall. I'd love to get a similar knitting machine that does more stitches to try making some socks and leg warmers.
Emily's Butterfly Quilt
This is my butterfly quilt. I love butterflies and have been collecting different butterfly fabrics for years. I finally felt that I had collected enough of them to make myself a butterfly quilt large enough to be a bed spread.
I designed this quilt myself. The blocks with the white background have appliqued flowers and butterflies on them. Most of the butterfly and flower patterns were made up, but I got some of them from pattern books. Each of the blocks in between the applique blocks is an 8" block of one of the butterfly fabrics I have collected. Each butterfly fabric block is unique, and all of the fabrics on the applique butterflies are unique.
I finished piecing this quilt in June, 2004.
As of now, I am still quilting it, but I am nearing the finish line.
To quilt the blocks, I am outlining the appliqued butterflies and flowers and quilting a meandering path from a flower to the butterfly that is 2 blocks above it.
This is my pretty little blue dress that I made using blue eyelet fabric. I also made a white slip to go under it that has a flower lace design on the bottom, which hangs just below the bottom of the dress.
