I'm still here!

Just so you don't think I have disappeared forever, here is a quick post with a photo of my completed doll quilt for the Doll Quilt Swap II. I have been very busy with this as I did the whole thing by hand and with a toddler in the house I have to stay up late to work on it. It is now on it's way to my swap partner and I'm a little sad to part with it. It's the first time I have finished an entirely hand made quilt. I think that's the joy of doing a doll quilt, they are so achievable. I will definitely sign up for the next swap.



Once my partner recieves it I will go into some detail behind the design.

I had great plans to enter this competition and have started a bag for myself (for a change). Unfortunately I am just way too tired to finish it by today's deadline. I also have a bag and apron to finish by Sunday for two special Birthdays. So that can be my next post.

Oh and by the way, check this out. How nice! I really want to make some more things out of the Mod Girl fabric it's just gorgeous and the colours are beautiful - what a talented lady!

Next I have two quilts to complete and one to start for a special new little man. I think I'm a bit addicted to quilts now....

You're one busy girl! I saw you over at Sis Boom earlier with that stunning apron! Can we say we knew you before you were famous??? ;-)

Your quilt is beautiful and I can understand why it would be hard to part. You certainly have very lucky swap partners.

I was wondering where you were - can't wait to see the whole quilt - it looks beautiful. I wish I was your swap partner again.

How cute, I just LOVE the quilt and the colours work wonderfully together. Totally hand made! That is a lot of work. So nice to see what you have been up to:)

What a beautiful quilt - it must be very hard for you to part with. Thanks for your lovely comments, I love popping over to your site too to see what you've been making as everything always looks so lovely.

i wouldn't part with it. I'd quickly whip up another far less apealing one so you could keep this part...it is so great. Of course, not tell anyone. Keep making more quilts, they are wonderful.
