I'm back!

It was an amazing trip!! I met the most amazing people, ate the most incredible food, and stayed at the most beautiful historic hotel.


And, of course, the best part -- my traveling companion was my mom! :o)
We each made little mini-me outfits for our girls. Too fun!


This little pirate outfit represents the most time I have ever spent sewing any single dolly outfit. And every minute of it was SO FUN!


I love all the itty-bitty details -- from the white, lace-trimmed under dress (with puffy sleeves, of course!), to the leather vest, to the big ol' gold hoops, sword, and black satin skirt. I love how it turned out -- and I love this girl! :o)


And, of course here's little Matilda in the little sailor dress I made for her. This one took hours and hours, too -- and I just LOVE how it turned out!! (My mom made her adorable hat!)

After my trip, my brain needs a "reboot" -- and the swimming lessons continue, taking up a serious chunk of the day. So, needless to say, there isn't going to be much sewing this week -- but I will be back next week with some fun stuff! :o)

How many of you Blythers had matching outfits for your dolls? I'm picturing a sea of women with matching dolls!
