A winner, a finish and a new direction

First off, I forgot to draw a winner for my hand warmer/sachet yesterday. Here it is now:

The winner is Gwendellyn who loves eucalyptus (the King of all fragrances). I will get that to you in the mail as soon as possible. Congratulations!

I got some work done yesterday. I finally finished up the three  tablet covers that I had been working on for the last few weeks. The first two that I made worked up pretty fast and these three were hanging around for a little while - assembly line doesn't work well for me. Eh! You live and you learn. I have four more that I need to work on - a project for another day.
Three pretty tablet covers all in a row.

Simply Style and Road 15 (I love my little labels, too)

Geekly Chic tablet cover - MINE!!!

New direction refers to Barbie clothes. We are having a bit of a Barbie obsession in my house these days. I talked about my Barbie roll idea in my last post and I have since moved on to think about Barbie clothes. My mother bought my daughter five  Barbies at our flea market but they didn't come with any clothes. I started a teeny sweater last night with some sock yarn and thought I could make some black leggings out of an old t-shirt but I think a trip to the fabric store is in order. Now, I have never made a wearable garment. I have bought a few patterns, but I haven't been ambitious enough to try to make them yet (I'm thinking about it, though). I think constructing a Barbie outfit is the same as making person sized outfit... hmm... I'll have to keep you updated.

Linking up to Needle and Thread Thursday. Go make something!


  1. Oh my goodness, I'm the winner?? Hooray!! ♥♥ Thank you so much!

    I love making tablet covers too...I don't even have one! They're so great to give as gifts, though :)

  2. You may have already said - but where did you get your labels from? I love them as well as the tablet covers :-)

    1. Labels came from an etsy shop: Ananemone. Awesome shop - super quick turnaround - speedy shipping.

  3. Love those covers!! <3

  4. These covers are so wonderful, and I love all of the different kinds of quilting within each one. just fabulous, Green!
