Today I participated in the Christmas Quilt Along hosted by Quilt Sue at Quilt Times. I have to confess I spent most of the day working on this
It is for DD # 1 whose birthday is next week. The family are all coming for dinner tomorrow. This is a pattern from Volume 8 Number 11 of Australian Country Threads. I followed it pretty closely but now that I’ve made it once I know what I would do differently next time. Like make the hat a separate piece so that the doll can have different costumes for different occasions. (I’m thinking about when DD # 1 graduates in a year from now and how cute this doll would look in a graduation cap and gown. I’ll have to see if I can do a modification of the head and hat.)
I have been working in the evenings on a couple of hand sewing projects for Christmas swaps. This is for my November block for the Christmas Quilting Block swap…
The pattern is by Cyndi from Stitch, Stitch, Stitch
And this is for my Secret Santa swap…
Gotta go sew!
