  • Welcome to my blog!

    Hi! I'm Traci. I'm a nursing student and CNA who loves quilting, knitting, cross stitch, and the great outdoors. In my pre-scrubs life, I owned Real Photography, and you can still see my old wedding and portrait photography site here .

    I've created a map that shows links to our camping/hiking/general family fun review posts that you can find here. It's pretty much the coolest thing on this site. Thanks, Google!

    I great big puffy heart *love* comments, so please let me know you visited! I try to always reply!

the beginnings of a dollhouse pillow

If you follow my pinterest boards, you’ll know that I’ve been a tad bit dollhouse obsessed lately.  This dollhouse pillow, in particular, immediately caught my eye.  I knew I wanted to make one!  Since Children at Play didn’t arrive in time to the be the star of Ellie’s quiet book, I figured I would instead play with it in a dollhouse pillow!  This weekend I play around with making the front of the house and the inhabitant.  The doll is based off the illustrated dolls in the Children at Play prints.

If I can stay on schedule, I hope to get this finished up in the next week or two!

Kristy - Hopeful Threads - That is darling!!! Love this fabric line too!!!

Fran - Do you have small children working in a sweat shop sewing for you? It’s illegal, you know! That’s the only explanation I can come up with to understand how you can produce so much!!! I was CLEARLY too busy keeping up with Erica Kane’s daily exploits! You are amazing–and this is just adorable. XX000!

KathyH - AAAAAHHH! That is so stinkin cute! Love it!

Megan - That is so cute! It’s a great way to save on space if your own house is too small to have a dollhouse in it. Haha. What beautiful stitching on the doll.
