Work in Progress

I’m not sure if you ever do this, but I see several projects that I want to dive into at the SAME time…it always happens…now my poor workroom is covered literally from floor to ceiling with those several projects…

Here’s pics of a couple:

Dress Form

I love LIberty Jane patterns! I am trying to see if I can make a dress form for my dolly bedroom that I am attempting. I found some cute material that matches my color themes, but I wish that they were a bit thicker…do you think that plain cotton would work if I used it on the forms? I may have to add a thin interfacing to the pieces so it will stand the test of time.

I have a really good jewel to go on top!! So excited…

Setting up the bedroom

So I am working on a mattress and pillow for my white Ana White bed…then I want to focus on a color scheme for the blankets, rug, lamp and a dress form, just like Isabelle’s. My little girl likes blue and I was hoping that coral fit in with it…So I’m trying to use the blue on the bedspread, coral for the soft blanket at the foot of the bed and pillows in coral and blue. Hope it turns out ok…the rug? Maybe blue? the dress form…coral. 🙂

Projects

I FINALLY got my Ana White bed painted. The first coat I am sad to say was a seafoam green paint, disguised in a pure white paint can…it snuck up on me when I attempted to take the bed outside to paint while the last rays of the sun fell on my project. It was the only time I could do it-between entertaining two silly girls under 4, and driving to see my little prince in the NICU, I had to do it at dusk. So that’s what you get when you paint in the wee hours before the sun sets…a seafoam green doll bed…that’s supposed to be pure white. Go figure!
