Just a few paper dolls from a friend. I love to collect the vintage ones.
This sweet selection is from the same friend. I bought this darling German wooden 8" doll from her and she sent the other items knowing I would like them.
This is my new student Emily who has been coming for a month now and she has made a set of napkins, pillow cases, and this simple apron with pockets and also started her table topper with 4" squares.
This is what I'm working on in Dupoini silk. It's a pattern called a Flounce About Jacket. This silk is gorgeous I bought it while in France. I am trimming this out in black velvet. It's coming along. That is some bead work you see on the inside. The hem called for machine stitching but I used Petersham Ribbon and hand work. I can't see machine stitching on silk!
This is a taffeta silk bolero lined in 100% cotton silk like fabric. It has vintage green buttons. Lots of hand work on the lining.
The boys say thanks for the visit and come back soon.
