I’ve been procrastinating working on the play vestments because I’m starting from scratch. If I were merely making miniature vestments that would be one thing, but I’m trying to adapt them with elastic, etc., so they’re more child-friendly. I did break down yesterday and purchase the grosgrain ribbon I’m going to use for galloon and some appropriate elastic. Now I need to get the ironing board out and iron all that fabric so I can start drafting patterns. That perfectionist side of me hates to get started because it won’t be perfect. Oh well.
In other news:
…Pickles came up to me with that tattling look and said, “I was upside down on a chair being safe and…” Uh huh.
…I made a custom order of a dress and hat for a doll only 1.25 inches tall. I made it to coordinate with clothing the other collector’s dolls were already wearing. I can’t wait to see photos of the dress on the doll!

…I took this picture of a house for sale in our town (with my phone – hence the poor quality). I shared it with a friend and she then shared the real estate photo.
