These are some of the quilts I have been quilting this week - it is just the best - seeing other people's work, their colour choices - I see some very beautiful quilts. The embroidered bear quilt here is absolutely exquisite - the most beautiful embroidery work I have ever seen.

And this little (well quite tall) lady came to stay last night between 9pm and 1am - I have started to make a wire framed, fabric sculptured doll. She is 23 inches tall and poseable due to the wire inside. She has yet to finish dressing as she can't make up her mind what she wants to wear. Her face also needs to be coloured/painted and possibly a little more botox (stuffing) to round out those features. Not sure about the cap/hat - we might go for some hair under there and she definitely needs more frills. I am hoping to get to the sewing machine to free motion embroider her some lovely fitting clothes. And then there are a couple of other beautiful ladies that are calling out waiting to be dressed - Once they have been clothed I will reveal them.

Cheers for now....Jane
