Bit of this and that

Not another "Country Keepsake" doll by Annie Smith...... yes it is, please meet "Sugar Plum" and of course she is as cute as her name.... I love making these dolls... as if you hadn't guessed that already. Thats an OPAM too, first finish for this year..... I have been doing lots but ongoing projects that will take a while to finish.

I thought I would pop in a small project amongst the larger ones as I need a new needle case so that makes it even better.

More shopping too, this is for a very simple table topper.

Saturday dolly girls working hard, don't they look serious.... well just in this photo. We are all making a simple quilt "Floral Dreams" by Quilters Barn bit of a change from dolls and a learning quilt for a couple of ladies.

                                    Love the fabric for this one.

Last but not least..... last Tuesday we had these 2 lovely ladies from our FIS group visit us for a bit of stitching... I have known both ladies for some years online so it was great to meet in person and it was just as though we had been together for years and years.....we  managed to get in a little bit of stitching between all the chatting and laughing.

                    De from QLD.. Vicki from Tassie.. me..Tereasa .. Teresa.

                    Thank you ladies for making our day so enjoyable.

You may need a bigger house Helen. Your dollies are all so beautiful that I can't imagine you giving any of them away. Although I have a bit of room in my spare bedroom if you do. Hugs
