While, I am only partially responsible for the "making" of this, I did want to share the pics of the "play kitchen" that "we" built for our granddaughter for Christmas.

That is fantastic! That first picture, I thought was a real kitchen until I read further and saw the other pics.

I went ahead and cut another front for the blouse with no front seam, and when I went to see which facing pattern piece to use, found that neither one of them fit. Easy enough to fix, I just took a sheet of paper and traced the neckline. I'm sure glad I checked!

Especially when it means adding a tool to your arsenal! I just replaced a bodkin I left behind when moving. It's nice to have it back.

I also bought some plastic canvas. 7/". That's all I could find, but all the patterns are for 5/".

It shouldn't be a problem anyway. I have a chart for a Home Sweet Home sentiment, and have wanted for a long time to make it for myself.

I decided to go with the yarns I have ranging from pale cream to chocolate brown with rust, maroon and terra cotta.

The sentiment will be dark chocolate and the background will use all the other colors in some kind of pattern.

I'm anxious to get back to my blouse, but got stuck with 2 pair of pants that my friend needs shortened, and don't have the right colored thread for either of them. Tomorrow is shopping so I'll get those pants done and get back to my blouse.

I've been assembling all the items needed to begin my projects for Christmas gifts for 2012 for the family. Let the games begin!!

Also, tomorrow, I'll create the table arrangement for the dining room table for the winter season. I change out the arrangements about 4 times a year, with the exception of wintertime. For several weeks I display the Christmas arrangement but, after that, I want to have something a little "wintery" to take its place. I hadn't gotten around to that last year, so tomorrow I'll take care of that.
