Sewing Summit

Remember that rainy Sunday a couple weeks ago, San Diego peeps? I spent it sewing with a friend. Music playing, tea poured, the rain outside, and the stitch-stitch-stitch of two sewing machines.
I made a pillow with fabric I bought at an antique store in 2008. Megan made covers for a couple of ottomans with some really cool linen and green fabric.
I sewed up this vintage Lizzie doll that I had been holding onto for who knows how long. She looks a little wiggly here. I have since straightened out the stuffing! She sits on the hearth by the fireplace now, to stay warm.
And then I got crazy, and made a little tote; an exercise in gingham, ticking, and plaid: three faves.
