Of Dolls and Quilts


These two cute critters are heading off to Monkeemoomoo's Dolly Drive to put a smile on the dial of kids who have endured the Queensland Floods.  If you would like to help out by making a doll, all the info is here, im sure Jacki would love to hear from you. 


Yesterday I visited my sister  and look what i scored, a gorgeous crocheted pincushion! She has just renovated her studio (check out the pics here)  and had this sitting on the bench top looking very stylish indeed.  When i saw it i thought i really NEED to make one but she was so lovely to give me this one - isnt she a sweetie?



Today Ive been busy making more wonky stars, i think i have enough to put together a quilt top.
 I just need to work out HOW to put it together! 


Wish me luck!
