Hello!!!!!

I know.......I haven't been here for awhile.  I have been busy making dolls though.

I managed to get this ridiculous flu/cold thingy that went on and on and on. I have finally stopped coughing most of the time. I've gone for a couple of days now without much hacking and I'm sleeping again at night.

I emailed someone recently and she wanted to know why I was sending her mail at 3 o'clock in the morning. Well if you cough and cough and can't sleep what else is there to do?

Silly woman.....sheesh.

So......hello again and some news:)

Recently I was looking for some fabric to make this doll for an on line class called "Abundance" with the talented Angela Jarecki. As you can see she has a crazy quilted jacket....that's actually what attracted me most. I've always enjoyed embroidery and I've wanted to try crazy quilting so I figured why not:)

This is what I hope mine will look like......

So I went looking for fabric at various stores on Etsy and bought some from Dianem's Etsy Shop as she had some very nice crazy quilting bundles on sale that I thought I could use for this doll.

I'm also a follower of her blog and went over to see what was up and lo and behold she had a giveaway for a crazy quilting selection and guess what.......I won more FABRIC!!!!!!

I really couldn't believe it as I was the last person to put a comment.  I know I've said this before but I should really start buying lottery tickets.

So I received the package today and I thought maybe I'd share what I'd won......lots of pretties to play with........








That last piece is so beautifully crafted.......really lovely.

Take care:)

Beautiful fabrics - they look just right for the doll, but oh, how hard to choose and cut!

Glad you're getting well, coughing is not fun! The fabric you won is beautiful. I'm drawn to the lovely fusia and orange embroidered fabric...just gorgeous.
