Stitching away

Friday Night Sew-In saw me settled in my comfy chair with a bit of hand sewing.
I've started another block for my Wings and Pretty Things quilt; there's not much to show yet but it is a good little start!

I finished the flower but needed to do a little prep work before I could continue, so I pulled out my current stitchery project, Memory Lane, to work on instead —
Since I last shared this project, I've finished a couple more blocks so I am nearly done with month 3 - still very behind though!

This weekend I'm trying to get the requested Barbie clothes done so I can put all the 'doll-making' bits away. 
Pyjamas are on the cutting board at the moment and here is a pair I completed yesterday —
(NO, I didn't do tiny little buttonholes, there's Velcro tape sewn on the underside and the buttons are for decoration only!)
Well I'd best get back to those fiddly seams, thank you Wendy for hosting FNSI!
'til next time,
happy stitches,

why would it be bad to have done the buttonholes lol

Ha… I wouldn’t do buttonholes either. Great idea to use Velcro. The pjs look very cute.

I love the little stitcheries. They will look so good in the finished project. Those PJs look so fiddly. I don’t blame you for using Velcro. Much easier for little fingers to manoeuvre too.

You always have such pretty applique pieces. Cute pjs for the fashion conscious dolls.
