End of Summer

My neighbor has a new baby girl and I offered to make a Halloween costume for her as a "welcome home" gift.   Her mom wanted Raggedy Ann, so I thought I better make one for American Girl as practice.   The costume was very successful (and, I'm sorry to say, has sold), but I wanted to "show it off".   I will publish a picture of the little one in her costume in late October.

This is my final Halloween Costume for this year, a Midnight Magic Princess.   This would also make a wonderful Holiday gift for any girl who loves princesses.

I still have available my final witch costume for this year.  It is a colorful, purple and green striped fairy tail witch.   Polka dots, a little bling, and many colors - it is a really fun outfit.

School is starting, so I  have created two "back to school" dresses for the Kit and Ruthie.  

Finally, I created a more "everyday" Regency dress and Bonnet for American Doll Caroline. Someday I hope to have a real Caroline Doll to photograph in these dresses.  This is a very pretty dress, and reasonably priced.

Summertime - Gardens and Butterflies

I've been busy in the gardens this year.   We are busy now harvesting the last of the tomatos, watermelons, cantaloupes, zucchinis, and peppers.   My spice garden attracted the swallowtail butterfly and I watched as 5 little eggs grew into larva.  They vanished when it was time to pupate, but I hope all of them became beautiful swallowtails.

I was busy in the sewing room, and in the "shipping" department.   It was a good month for sales at CSB Sews Doll Clothes.   Some of the newly created outfits sold immediately, before I had a chance to post them (I have marked them sold).   Just a reminder that to get immediate notification of new items from CSB Sews, follow me on FacebookTwitter or Pinterest.
