I have been sewing some new things

Hello and Happy Sunday!

As my title says I have been sewing some new things, American Girl doll clothes.  A friend at work went to the American Girl store downtown Chicago and purchased a doll for her granddaughter and was telling me about the dresses etc.  I said I could make some dresses and so it began -- this was the first one I made and I have been sewing dresses for the past few days.  And yes I do have a Samantha doll, but she was in her original outfit, til last week and now she is a model!! 

I have several more cut out and more in the works, I even opened up an Etsy account just for the doll dresses, Doll Clothes by Dot is the name of it - if  you want to check it out.

Other than sewing dresses - we are in the middle of a huge cleaning and sprucing up around our house.  We are hosting Thanksgiving for Dear Hubbys family,  I was off on Friday and got a ton done and today I painted the first floor bathroom a real nice blue and am just finishing up the decorating of that -- the living room is clean and the kitchen and dining room - shall we say are in the works!! LOL - Dear Hubby touched up the  paint in those rooms and recaulked the counter where it meets the wall,  and  on Friday I took down all my roosters and chickens on top of the cabinets and cleaned them and replaced them on the top -- it is all coming to together.

Off to work on the Chili for dinner.  Thanks for stopping by -- hope your weekend is great!
Happy Stitches!
