Wedding quilt

I am making a quilt as a wedding gift for my daughter, Katie, and her fiance, Kyle, who are getting married October 19. These are the fabrics I am using. She chose some of them from the Hancock's of Paducah catalog when she was here at Christmas, and I added some to have enough variety. This is the pattern I am using:

Even though fabrics are for the most part contemporary, I wanted to use a fairly traditional pattern. Some of the fabrics are Amy Butler, some Moda and I even snuck in an April Cornell. I will post a photo of work in progress when I finish piecing the 486 half triangles together (did I mention I'm making a king-size? :-)

Miss Revlon in another outfit

My mother made all these fantastic doll clothes for Christmas, 1957. I am the process of photographing them all to post on the Yahoo! GlamourDolls board, so I will be sharing them here as well. This is Miss Revlon in her black velvet slacks and a red top...a very elegant 50s look.

St. Patrick's Day dinner

...was corned beef and cabbage of course. It looked so nice that I had to take a picture!
