Soon I will be Sewing Again!

Husband is on his way to Ikea to get a bookcase for my dolls.  Today, the landlady is coming to take the two sofa’s and the wood table that are in the bedroom.  I will then move my craft table in the bedroom and set  up the bookcase to hold my dolls and my sewing box, patterns and such.  I will be able to start sewing!!!!!

We had planned on buying more furniture this month, but a few other expenses came up and so things will take a bit longer than we wanted, to complete the flat.  We still need 2 dressers in the bedroom so that I can use the wardrobe for doll stuff and we need one more display unit for artwork in the living room.

With husband home on vacation this week, I pretty much relaxed and didn’t do more than knitting for dolly stuff.  I finished Yorik’s red sweater:

I am currently working on a sweater coat for Rosy.  Oh, yeah, Jollyann finally settled on Rose Marie as her name and I get to call her Rosy.  I am at this particular time very attached to her.  Audrey certainly pulls my heartstrings, but Rosy just keeps me glued to her.  I received a refund from a seller on eBay after she couldn’t find the item I bought and the funds were promptly converted into dolly dollars!  Well, dolly pounds anyways.  I looked at dolls, but I really don’t want a new doll right now, I am happy with the ones I have and I thought that maybe a bed would be nice.  I found this one:

I am hoping it will be okay for Rosy, although it is 17.5 and I bought it thinking she was 16 inches.  I measured her to find she is 17 inches!  Oops!  She’s been sleeping next to my bed in a basket, and well, I thought she might as well have a bed.  I did save some antique dolly bed linens, so this will be fun to have.

I’ll take photo’s of the sewing machine and shelf set up tomorrow.  I’ll include a shot of the knitting too.  For now, all the dolls are hiding under my duvet and waiting until the furniture haul away is done.

I need to reposition her wig so that her bangs are not so short.
