A new year!

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!  It was exciting at our house—Santa left lots of presents under the tree for the girls. 

Someone was especially happy to get her own sewing machine and several books for making doll clothes.


The machine is a Janome DC1050 and it works great.  It is the perfect first machine for a kid or adult.  It’s the most basic computerized Janome.  Bea has already made a quilt and two sundresses that I will share as soon as I take photos.

Christmas included some handmade gifts from an aunt.


Some sweet knitted hats for the girls


And Bea requested a “mysterious” black cape.  She loves it!

Looking back, I sewed a lot more this year than in years past.


And looking forward, we are doing some organizing around the house.  Thank goodness for Ikea!


Have a safe and happy new year!


  1. I love that mysterious black cape. So cute!

    Happy New Year to you and yours.

  2. I like that little cutie peeking out of the IKEA shelves!

    WOW she already made 2 sundresses and a quilt---she is on her way!!

    Happy New Year!!!
