This last week.

What a week.
 I have a million thoughts about this last week and I suppose that if I spoke of them all this would be 1000 jumbled words that only made sense to me.
In a nutshell, coming back from a visit with family was exhausting.
Travel usually is exhausting. This visit, we had a great time though. It was worth it.
I work full time as most know and this week was a whopper. Likely due to the fact that last week was a short week. This always happens, I am always unprepared.
Thank goodness my staff IS prepared and happy to come back to work.
I hadn't touched my sewing machine in over a week, until this morning.
I wanted to sew something mindlessly and get myself back in th groove.
This is the result.

I used {70} 2.5" squares of 1930's fabric scraps that I had. Plus I added some leftover Moda milk jelly roll basic to the border. It is only 18" X 24".  A nice little quilt.
Maybe for my 9 year olds' new Amercian girl doll?
Yes we've entered the age of American girl dolls...lord help us.
My mother bought "G" her first AG doll for Christmas.
I have no idea why she didn't just by me one too! LOL
They are cute and addicting if you are not careful. I think that comes from not really growing out of the 'playing with dolls' stage? I don't know.
I guess I am settling with making "G" clothes and accessories.
Well I am being called by my lonely sewing machine yet again.
If I don't sew something soon....there will be nothing to blog about!
talk to you soon :)

Nothing like mindless sewing. I haven't touched my machine in so long. Maybe that it what I should do. I love your little quilt. 30's fabrics are my favorite.

That is a cute little quilt! I still love dolls and have several that are 13" and 18" that I purchased from Martha Pullen Co. I love them and they reside in the guest room.

Travel is tiring! You need a vacation after your vacation! Sewing will get you back on track.

Very, very cute little quilt. I love those reproduction prints. Good luck with the American Girl phase. I hear it gets very expensive ;)

I think your quilt is very sweet. As a beginning quilter myself though, the thought of all those teeny tiny squares scares me. LOL Kit is my favorite AG doll, and I'm finding myself drawn more and more to the 1930's fabrics.
