Yesterday was the summer solstice marking the longest day of the year, and summer seems to have arrived right on cue because it's been absolutely beautiful here. There's a nice breeze coming in through the open windows this morning and the trees are full of birdsong. All this makes it easier to face the mess I'm making in the sewing room. But look! I found Thursday in that pile with some other UFO's that I may get to finishing soon. I'm also making much more progress on the Flower Pots quilt than I ever thought I would and am actually seeing light at the end of the tunnel. I'll post a work in progress again tomorrow.
(And for those who asked, you can find the transfer pattern for the Prissy Poodle towels is here.)
But before I get back to the 'Unfinished Objects' pile, I want to share some of the delightful dollhouse doings around here. As I've shown you, dollhouses can take many forms. They can be as simple as a twig & moss structure from the garden (for fairies of coarse), fashioned from a wardrobe cabinet, or made from a kit like this Victorian dollhouse that I'd previously shared about here.
This seemed like the perfect setting for a few more of our Club Little House swap goodies. Here is the sweet china cupboard that Alicia made, which you can see fits just perfectly in our little kitchen here. How nice is that? We love it! And all the plates and things are so cute too. Plus we finally have a place to put this tiny toaster, which I love. Grace made the scrumptious cake. Upstairs the bedroom got a make-over and the yellow bed was replaced with the pink bed to match this adorable little night stand with drawers, that actually open, made by Alice. I couldn't be more pleased with how these fit right in here. It's all so wonderful.
