Well....It's Not Knitting....

I am busy with my store but did get a couple of things finished. I have all my fabric for my toddler quilts. Should have them finished by Christmas. Also, managed to fill up my box for the Friendship House & took it up there. They're always grateful for the children's sweaters I make them.
I have been doing a little bit of sewing. I made this for my g'daughter. They live in California so it's usually warm there.
This little sundress buttons at the shoulder . It can be used by her  as a sundress, then when she is older they are cute for a top. In cooler weather I always put leggings & a long sleeved tee under it.  I made more than a few of these for my daughter when she was an infant & toddler. I debated on whether or not the put an embroidery design on it but decided I like the look as is. I am going to add this sundress to my store as a set, with the dress, hat & panties soaker & see how it does.
Here is the hat that I made to go with it. She doesn't need it but it is sooo cute that I went ahead & bought the pattern & made it up. It's a prairie hat. She is 2 now & may not be into hats, but I made my DIL promise to take a picture for my blog. 
I am busy making small appliance covers for Christmas presents, which I am quilting. I hope no one drops dead when they get a toaster cover from me that is sewn rather than knitted. I have sorted all my sewing paraphernalia & straightened out my sewing basket, & am ready to do some serious sewing with the toddler quilts.   
On another note, I am busy working on another littler tutorial depicting another method of increasing using short row & ravel cord. I have it pretty much worked out but need to take pictures etc.
