Sewing Room Gifts…

While visiting my dear friend Bettyann, the “Divine Ms. B” as she is known at Pineridge Hills….She  invited me over a few weeks before Christmas for Tea & freshly baked cake…..I was telling her I had just ordered several doll patterns so I could start creating a wardrobe for my granddaughters’ new American Girl Dolls they were getting for Christmas. She said “Oh, Lois come with me!”……downstairs was the most beautiful sight I had ever seen! An actual, dedicated Sewing/Craft Room!  I mean, with wall to wall cabinets and counter tops and a sewing island in the middle! I was awe-struck! and totally jealous! After walking around in a daze, Bettyann said “Ok, time to shop!”….and shop we did…….she gave me bundles of fabric, which by the way, are color-coordinated by cabinet….. which I happily gathered up and went home and sewed till dawn!

I’m still sewing!……….and sewing………..and, well you get the idea………

How do I thank this wonderful friend? well I thought I would make her something for her sewing room…..but what do you make for someone so talented?

Well, I found a copy of Mary Engelbreits cut out doll page from an old magazine on line…..So I copied it on card stock……

I then took pieces from a few of the fabric bundles Bettyann gave me…….


and placed them on the outfits and framed it…..


What do you think? I’m thinkng of making note cards as gifts using this idea………

I so enjoy my time with the “Divine Ms. B”….we laugh, gossip and chat about everything from sewing to quilting! She also keeps me on my “Blogging Toes”……I’ll get a call from her telling me to get with it and start blogging!!

I’m going to do a “photo Shoot” of her wonderful home and especially her divine sewing room and her  quilting……

I have several “Shoots” planned this month…….of lovely homes and tablescapes…..they may not be well known celebraties but to me they are family and friends with great decorating ideas’ and hobbies!

Happy Tuesday!
