It's all sandwiched, pinned and even a little quilting started. I laid it out on the bed and as I was looking at it --- OMG, Heavens to Betsy, it can't be!!!!--- but there it was! One little flower is not buttonholed stitched (you also get a good look at a bobble on the leaf of the flower alongside) and how in heck can I remedy that? After the initial shock, I think that I will be able to hand buttonhole around the little flower if I am careful. By taking out some of the pins that should work fine even though I have quilted along the entire width of the quilt just above the blue sashing. Things like this really keep a person humble!!
Earlier this winter when I was going through things in the basement, I found a plastic bag with this little muslin doll, the drawing and two pieces of fabric. The doll was one I had made several of from a pattern in a magazine, I think. I had one or two pinned to the curtains in my sewing room in the house we bought after we moved back to our hometown when Ray retired. Molly, my middle granddaughter, loved to go through my fabric and I know she spent lots of happy time looking through the drawers. This is the dress she designed that I was supposed to make for the little doll and the fabric to use. Explicit instructions about placement of trim and fabric! It certainly made me smile when I looked at this little remembrance from the past. I really should make the little dress and dress the dolly for Annie's room. What you find when you don't throw things away! I texted pictures to Molly but she didn't remember doing that. She probably was only 8 or 9. How the years have flown by!!
