Little Trees

Before I moved from Arkansas backto Georgia I was involved in a project for my Mother-in-law. She has an Easter villgae that she displays every year but it was lacking some trees. So, since I was there this spring when she brought it out she asked whether I could make her some. I didn't get all nine completed before I had to pack up, but I thought I'd share the six that I finished.

As you can see the pink trees are the shorteset standing at about 6 inches, then the yellow at about 8inches and the third set will be made with a pastel purple and they will syand about 10 inches to create a little forest for her.

Found treasures

Before we left Arkansas I was going through all of the items I was given from the Neff's home. I came across these fantastic old vintage sewing books. Actually they are not even necessarily books but more like paperback booklets. The pictures were so detailed and they covered basically construction of everything. I think they are really neat and I thought some of you might too.

The covers are so classic, here's a shot of them all.

It's pretty cool to see how much instruction and detail they were able to print in these flimsy paperback booklets. It seems like nowadays instructions for basic clothing construction are not as easily accesibile all in one place.
