I made a doll for a Mother's Day swap and forgot to post it as I was waiting until my partner Vickie recieved her. My partner loves chicken things, or chooks as they say in Australia where I sent her off to. She has her own chook in her lap and wears a chook hat! I used a cute little pattern by Cath Walker who is in the same Yahoo group as me and Vickie.
I got some great stuff for my gift from Vickie for Humptydoo in Australia!
This is the kitty Vickie made me. Isn't he cute!!!
I got some other great stuff too. Fabric, coasters, buttons, some great lace motifs that would be great for doll wings.
Tonight was my guild's Secret Sister reveal. I made this doll for mine. It is a pattern by Allison Morano called Bookshelf Pixie. I can only make a doll for the reveal because everyone knows me as the doll lady and it would be a giveaway!
I had a nice time and we were served a nice pasta dinner by the lady in charge of the Secret Sisters. It is a lot of fun to do Secret Sisters!
I finished my doll that was commissioned by the other owner of the quilt store. Had to make her similar to the one I made for the other owner. (They both own the one quilt shop)
She also has a quilt bag and apron with fabric on the pockets but I was told to use colors pink, blue and purple. The pattern is the same.....Averill by Deanna Hogan.
