My latest design-White Christmas Decor in miniature

Hello sweet friends, I have missed visiting with you. I lurk on your blogs and see what is happening, but have not commented much. My mother has been in the hospital for a few weeks, and just got home, thank goodness. We are all happier when she is doing well.

In the meantime, life has been going on at a very fast pace. I am going to be a grandmother in early spring...a little girl! Yay...With our two sons at home, we are visiting more, eating dinner together (priceless!) and they are making me watch all the current movies. Haha...and my daughter in love is putting in orders for baby things she would like to have made....I am happy!
Joining with Beverly at Blog HOp!

Above is my latest project...a white Christmas in miniature. I have pulled out all the stops. 
I looked through my cabinets and pulled out white wools, cottons, white bridal fabric, white lace and other edgings...
fake snow...

I have a hard time sitting still, but nevertheless! They have brought me up to speed with the latest Alien dramas and conquests! Sometimes I bring little pillows with me to stuff while I am watching the movies, but then I stick myself with needles...and then that is not a good thing!

Here are some recent things I have been working on. I have submerged myself completely into this little world of miniatures and small things. Not just dollhouse...but doll beds in all sizes as well as other things.  I have received custom orders from Australia (doll bedding for cats!), Europe, Canada and another country I cannot even pronounce! hahaha...shame on me.
I feel humbled and blessed at all of this!

I am loving all the designing, creating and sewing, it makes my heart sing. I was born to sew things I have pictured first in my mind.  I waited far too long to go down this road, but I am glad I finally did!

For some reason...not sure why...I love making little doll bedding sets. I can't explain...but I love it!
Soft white linens, cottons, and I use bridal fabric quite often for a touch of glamour and bling.
 Well that is it for now. I post daily on Facebook and enjoy seeing all the wonderful people there that are working on projects too!
Have a great week.
