Lace and fabric picture collage

I had this fabric piece with pictures and sayings for a baby girl. I wanted to make a kind of crazy quilt collage with my old and new laces and the pictures. I added a few charms, beads and ribbon work

Here is a close up of some of the beading and ribbon flowers

Quilt and doll and family

Here is a quilt top I have finished using Asian fabrics. It was a gift and there was a jelly roll of strips and the pattern and some pieces of fabrics. Now I just have to quilt it!

It was my granddaughter Kassy's 12th birthday. I went to visit her and give her present.
From left to right: my grandson Calvin, my SIL Brian, my daughter Samantha and my new granddaughter Mallorie, my granddaughter Kassy, my daughter Stephanie.
Sam and Brian are married.

Here is my new doll I made from Barbara Willis' book Cloth Doll Artistry. It is a nice book!

The clothes are made from silks. Her body is doe suede, silks and batiks. Her hair is mohair. I love all the embellishing that Barbara's dolls have.
