Doll Quilts and Gifts

                                           100_5489     I can now show the two doll quilts I made recently as one was a gift and one was for me.   The pattern is from Kathleen Tracy’s website  Country Lane Quilts.   It’s a free pattern along with a few others there.  I’ve been admiring doll quilts on other blogs and can certainly see how they can become addictive .  These were fast and fun to make.  I machine quilted one and hand quilted the other.

Here is mine on display with a raggedy doll who has been waiting a very long time for a quilt of her own.

Yesterday I needed a quick gift so I made this little bag which holds a lavender sachet.  I received the one in the bottom photo from Linda and stole her idea (she said it was okay).  She also sent the French calendar which is now gracing my sewing room shelf.

And did anyone notice that Santa had to add a few more reindeer to pull his sleigh this year?  It was because of  Linda.   My amazing friend from Living The Dream  in France sent me so many beautiful gifts that the regulars, Rudolph and his gang were not enough.   As well as the calendar and sachet she sent all these goodies…..

Thank you from the very bottom of my heart, Linda.  We all can’t wait to see what I sent you IF IT EVER ARRIVES!!!!     Poor Linda.

Over the holidays I was lucky and won a giveaway from Vreni at her blog Oops-Lah.   It is a rolie-polie of Christmas Candy  by Riley Blake - yummy.   It’s in the mail and I can’t wait to receive it.  Thanks very much, Vreni for your kindness and  generosity.   P1000920 

My best wishes to all of you  and the Happy of New Year too!

Diane,

Thanks so much for visiting me! I am SO touched you showed the Christmas smocked bishop to your grandmother. That really encouraged me to want to make more dresses this new year.... just to bless a fellow smocker ;)

Your doll quilts are adorable. I have never made one... but have been thinking about making a couple.

Linda said...
