AG Pets & Some Quilts

I feel like I'm meeting myself coming and going lately.  I have a bunch of things in the works; some I can share, and some I cannot yet.  Next week is the big reveal!  So be sure to stop by again!  Anyway, I was at Sam's Club this morning and they had this year's American Girl pets in the special boxes.  These pets don't have the collars, but they usually come with an activity book and some small pet accessories such as food and water bowls.  I snapped some photos of the ones currently at my club.  They are $30.48 each.



They also had an assortment of the mini dolls with the book sets.  These usually have an attractive price.  The thing I don't like about them is that they don't come with the doll-sized book.  There were different activity kits too.  Late fall is definitely a good time to look at Sam's for AG things.

I'm working on a quilt top and even though it is easy, it is taking me forever.  One frustrating thing is all my sashing strips ended up 1" too short so I had to fix them by adding another seam to each piece.  Not a huge deal, just annoying.

I'm binding this quilt and it is taking FOREVER!  I love binding, but this one is just not calling to me like usual.  It's close though--about 3/4 done.  This top was a kit I bought probably five years ago in Annapolis.  It came with fabric for the binding.  I cut it narrower than the directions and still didn't have enough.  :(  Luckily I had tons of the blue fabric from the backing left over since the first cut I got from Jo-Ann was so crookedly cut that it was off almost a third of a yard from one side to another, and thus, too short.  So I had an extra five yards.  Sigh.  At least I got it on special so it was only like $2.50/yard.


I haven't many any progress at all on the HP cross stitch I shared a few weeks ago.  I'm close to having both Halloween costumes finished for my kids.  About time, right?  Ha.  I did get all of the doll clothing photos uploaded into the Doll Clothes tab.  It's fun to look back at all the outfits I've made.  And, just because I don't have enough going on, I signed up for another mini mini Bonnie & Camille barn quilt swap, Christmas themed colors this time.  It will have a two-week turnaround.  I may be crazy, but I couldn't refuse because Ginger runs a great swap and this one always has a good end product.
