The morning was busy with errands and catching up chores … but I did get down into the sewing room this afternoon. Kathy in WI from my HeartStrings group was having a sew-in today and since I couldn’t be there … I sewed along from home. They were working on quilts for kids so I decided I’d piece a Quick Strippie.
Before I started cutting and piecing I had a long call with Mom. I’d asked her on Saturday if she wanted me to kit up a couple Strippies for her to sew and she’d said yes so I pulled some options for her and then FaceTimed her to let her chose.
There was enough of the Jungle Animal fabric for both of us to make one and I got hers cut too. She chose a couple others and I’ll get them cut and kitted up later this week.
While we were talking we collaborated a bit on the doll/bear quilt donation project she’s helping me with and I showed her a few more “items” I’d picked up at the Dollar General when I went out for Finn’s food.
Now don’t worry, I’m still going to be making some bears and I have more of the bears I ordered a while back but these were too good to pass up.
The plush Dino’s are SO soft and were just $5 each. The Cabbage Patch dolls (lamb, puppy, cow) were $10 each. That’s half of what they want for them at Amazon.
It’s so fun to work on the project with Mom and there was even a piece of the jungle fabric leftover after I cut the two Strippies so I cut a square for a doll quilt for Mom to make.
