Getting Ready for Autumn

Fall is coming  - time for a new coat.

I'm Abby and I have a new coat and hat - ready for the cool autumn days and evenings.  The hat matches and is very versatile.
 Diane picked these green fabrics - I think they make a great coat and hat for autumn
 I can wear the hat in different ways


 If I wear the green coat and hat with my red dress and shoes I will be ready for a christmas party.
 With this fancy hat I could go to London and have tea with the Queen
 Or take a stroll in Paris

A Tea Party and New Dresses

  Hi - I'm Abby - I have a new dress with daisies and yellow ribbons - Diane picked this black/daisy fabric - perfect for pretty dresses.

 I even have bloomers to match
I think this dress is perfect for a summer party.


And I am Sally Jo - sometimes we share each other's clothes - I do like this party dress 

 We take turns wearing our pretty party dresses, don't you think this red dress is beautiful -it is made from the same pattern as the black dress
 And then we trade dresses - oops - we forgot to trade shoes
 Hmmm - that isn't right either
 There we go - perfect match
 We'd like to have a tea party - would you please come with us?

 Our new tea set is shiny and pretty
 With pink roses on the cups, saucers and plates


 We like our afternoon tea



Thank you for coming, we hope you enjoyed the tea.  Come again soon

A Fairy

A cute little fairy dropped by this week

A baby's first laugh drifts into the air and becomes a fairy - so each boy and girl has their own fairy to help them through their life.

 Poppy the fairy is wearing her favorite fairy dress - with fairies on the fabric


 She is thinking up good deeds to do so she can earn her wings
And she did it - good deeds always bring wings to nice little fairies.


The pattern is Simplicity 5705.  I adapted Poppy's outfit from the one on the top left.  I didn't have enough fabric so had to make the skirt differently, but love how it turned out anyway.
