Morning Projects

I bought a doll cradle at Goodwill last year for $7.00 with an additional 30% off. Pretty good score. However, I have not had a chance to outfit it with bedding. I knitted a little doll blanket last week out of some leftover yarn. This morning I made a mattress and pillow.

Here is Miss Elsie stuffing the pillow...

The finished project...

It turned out pretty well. Elsie is pleased with it.

I'm getting into a spring cleaning/decorating mood. I want to make some new pillows for the living room and take down the velvet drapes. I came across these cool mobiles this morning. One of these would be so cool in the house... just what I need... another project. We still need to finish the basement. Although I did get the following things done:
chimney cleaned
carpets cleaned
oven cleaned
ice maker fixed
sent out area rugs to be cleaned
... so I'm off to a good start with the spring cleaning.

You are efficient.
The doll bed is lovely, I think I need to make someone a blanket like that.

Fantastic score on such a pretty doll bed. Nice linens and blankets for the baby! Elsie will enjoy this for a long time.
