Playin' Catch-up

Boy have I been falling behind in my posting. Working full time outside the home and full time inside tends to make that happen I guess. But I have a few minutes to spare and can play catch up with sharing some of the things I've been working on.

1st up is a little outfit I've been working on for Ivy Girl. I am using up some remaining fabrics from the girls' Easter dresses to put it together. It is not quite done yet but will be in the next day or so when I have a free minute but here is Ivy Girl proudly modeling it as a work in progress:

 I stumbled upon this pattern back November and tucked it away in my file of things I want to make with the plans to make each of the girls one for Easter. I was surprised at how quick they were to put together, 4 hours start to finish for each of them.
 A co-worker saw me working on these for the girls and asked if I might make some for her grandaughters and so I had fun with these three:
 I Forget where on blog land I found this little pattern for these bunny cute sachets but I could not resist making three to go in mum's Easter parcel. Sorry about the blurry photos.

 And of course there is the girls all decked out in their Easter dresses ready for church.

 Ivy Girl is our little bag lady and LOVES her new purse. She totes one bag or another everywhere she goes. And it is usually loaded with paper, her favorite thing in the whole wide world, next to mommy of course.

I have also completed two more Raggedy Ann blocks but have not photographed them to share yet. I shall try to do that in the next few days.

Nicey Jane Pillows

I threw together these quick pillows last night to adorn the settee I picked up last summer at a yard sale for $8. The upholstery is not in the best of shape so I have also been at work on a slipcover for it. That too is nearly done so I will share photos soon. Although you get a bit of a peak at it in this photo.
