Bright & Bold

The minute I found out that I was going to be an aunt (again) of a beautiful baby girl named Corley, I could not help but to think of making her a doll.  This fabric mix of Amy Butler and Sandi Henderson's caught my eye in my fabric stash.  They are bright and bold colors that compliment each other and look so girly!  I am sure that my niece will love her doll just as much as my girls have loved the ones that I have made them in the past.  I love you baby Corley!

It's been a crazy last few weeks.  I feel so bad to have promised to "be back soon" and I didn't keep my promise.  Please say you'll forgive me???  I did a little blog makeover for you guys.  I know, I may be rushing spring just a little but I can't help it.  Here in the sunny south, we've had spring like weather for about that past two weeks.  Flowers and trees are in bloom and the weather has been in the mid to upper 60's.

Part of my absence is due to another bathroom remodel, baby gifts, wedding plans for a close family member and Easter being just around the corner!  WOW, this year is flying by.  All of these events have required handmade goods, time and lots of energy. 

Here's a little bit of what I have been up to.  Bryar put in a request for a kitty cat to be sewn.  She picked out the pattern herself and patiently waited two months for me to complete the project.  What a sweet girl. 

I caught her bouncing around on her bed with her new "purrr-fect" pillow friend.  She squealed with excitement and had the biggest smile.  It was just the sweetest thing.  She has carried her new pillow friend around daily.

I will share a few other items that I have been working on over the next few days.  It seems like forever since I have been able to enjoy my craft room.  It felt good getting back into the swing of things.  Ahhhh, I love it!
