Dotee dolls and Bunny toy

Every Dotee has a hanger and a tail and a 3 to 6 inch body the you can embellish or whatever you want to do with them.

I made two Dotee dolls for the Doll Street swap. They each have a fabric bead in their tail I made for the charm part. They were fun to make.

This is the bunny toy I made for my secret sister at quilt guild. Next month is our reveal.
This is a Judy Ward pattern she has for free. I had fun making this little guy and his carrot car!
The carrot car has yo yo wheels!

Forgot finished Pinocchio

Here is a piccie of my finished challenge quilt. My friend Mona made the fabulous picture frame border and quilted it. She said if I would do the challenge, she would quilt it! The Pinocchio doll is holding a bead banner that says, 'I am a real boy'!

Quilt Show and Testing Doll

Well, one quilt show down and one to go! This last weekend was Foothill guild's show. I went on Friday to preview night. They have lots of munchies and the guild gets to see all the quilts before the public. I had to count ballots with my friend Mona. Sat I worked a three hour shift at the info desk and Sunday I got to see the doll exhibit. I had two dolls in that. Didn't get any pics as I forgot my camera! This was also the show with my Pinocchio quilt on display.

I finished testing 'Treasures of the Deep' for Colleen Babcock. She has done it again. It is a fabulous pattern with all sorts of little techniques in it. Here are a few pics.

She can hold jewelry in her hands!
Isn't she fabulous!!! I am so lucky to have been able to test for Colleen!
