Sewing by Ti - red, white and pink blog tour

Today is my turn on the Sewing by Ti, Red, White and pink blog hop.   I decided it would be fun to do some doll clothes. A great idea for a little girl in your life for Valentine's day.

I got in touch with my friend Erin over at www.averylanesewing.com and was able to get some patterns from her. I have some of her patterns and thought I would see what was new.

I choose to make this Lindsey skirt and tee shirt. So, I got a skirt all done and realized this was to be red, white and pink. Oh no!!!!!!!

So, I got another one cut out and a top.

There were supposed to be more, but due to me not being a planner kind of person, they did not get done. However, I can tell you that these are very easy patterns, the instructions are well written, and they do sew up fast. 

Erin has a lot of variety on her website, and she even has a book for helping children learn to sew doll clothes. That would be an awesome Valentine's gift for a budding seamstress, wouldn't it.

I have her e-book, Doll Days, and I will be doing a review on it. I will be making more outfits from her patterns, and will share even more doll clothes. I am not sure what day I will do this, I have some other things going on. However, I will do a post in a few days sharing all the things I have coming up. So, please follow me, so I can hopefully inspire you.   And yes, beginning now, I am going to start being a planner kind of person.

Please check out these bloggers all month long to get inspired. I know there will be lots of fun things.

Let's get inspired!

Sunday Lately - feeling, dancing, praising

Today is my day to co-host Sunday Lately. The theme for today is Feeling, dancing, and praising. Sunday Lately is a fun group of bloggers sharing their things they love to do.  It is hosted by www.wildandwanderful.com/blo/2018/02/sunday-lately162

Feeling: today I am feeling grateful. Grateful for the ability I have to sew and quilt, and be able to do things for my family. I also use my sewing ability in my job. I am a professional seamstress. I work for a place that I sew trade show and event displays. So, if you are watching the Superbowl today, you will see things that I had a hand in making. Any of the graphics that you see around columns, behind announcers, and such are things I have had a hand in. Likewise if you sell Lularoe or some of the other network marketing groups, more than likely I have worked on those things. I absolutely love it. I am also feeling joy. Joy in the fact that I have an awesome family. A family that enjoys the things I make for them. So, here are a few things I have made.

A t-shirt for the youngest grandson.

Dancing:  I am not a dancer, but I do enjoy getting up and moving to some of my favorite country songs. One of those is the Brooks and Dunns classic "Boot Scootin' Boogie".  I do have a daughter who dances, she enjoys doing Ballroom with her husband.  She did Ballet and Jazz while growing up. I have two granddaughters who really enjoy dancing. 

Praising:  my children for being good parents. My oldest granddaughter just took 4th place at a spelling bee. It was with some other homeschooled kids and it was her first time. I am proud of my children and their spouses. 

As I wrote this post, I can't help but feel thankful for all that I have.   I have lots more posts coming up, both sewing and quilting related. I hope you will follow me  because there will also be tips along the way. 

What has you Feeling, Dancing and praising today? What kinds of things would you like to see on my blog?
