I entered a Go Green Challenge with a sewing group. I intended to do a green wallhanging dipicting March with some green in it. It took on a life of its own and I ended up with Little Man's man bag and from the scraps (back of the legs) I made a pair of jeans for an 18" doll. You're saying,"what's green about those?". It didn't have to be the color green, it could also be green as in recycling. For instance on lady did one of those Capri Sun purses. It was really cute.
This is a close up of "Grammie's Car" No, I don't drive a Bug but it was the closest I could find at the time. A friend from a quilting group sent me the silver fabric. I think it was perfect.
This is the bag and the jeans. The doll now has a turquoise t-shirt so she's not topless!!
I'm doing a Downey Quilts For Kids project. They send you the kit with all the fabric you need already cut. All you need to supply is the batting. They are for hospitalizedchildren. The link is http://www.quiltforkids.org/ if you are interested in helping. I've also heard of an organization that makes things for newborns. I haven't checked into that one yet. I believe it's called Newborns In Need.
Keith is in Texas visiting our family there and also helping rebuild their house after a house fire destroyed part of the roof. They are taking advantage of having to do some repairs to also remodel in places. Someone has to stay home and tend to the farm, guess who. I don't even LIKE his creatures. Ugh. I quit the "Farmer Jane" thing nearly thirty years ago, I'm not sure why I keep getting drafted back into it.
Things I'm Thankful for Today
Spring is chasing Old Man Winter back to the North Pole
My fantastic sewing machine that will do nearly anything
The hope of better things to come
The ability to do something to help others
Most of all that, if we choose, we can have a home in heaven. Thank you, Jesus.
