This is fun, the dolly is very quick to knit and she has the most wonderful accessories. I'm pretending it's going to be a christmas present for Molly, but she's hates dollies and will toss it aside with disgust.
No crafting today, Molly is poorly and home from school, so we've been busy having a cuddle and watching Maisy. We love Maisy.
Here's a photo of Pink baby sockmonkey
who reached her destination safely, looks like she slept all the way.
The little quilt she's sleeping on, has been wrapped, ready to send off to a friend's new born baby girl ( yay, another girl -we WILL rule the world one day ! ), I forgot to take a photo of the quilt, but here's a close up of the applique,
This is about the best I can do when it comes to quilting, it's basically five 4" squares x six 4" squares, with an applique panel at the top and the quilting is 'stitched in the ditch' ( do I sound like I know what I'm talking about ? ). The idea came from Childhood treasures by Caroline Zoob ISBN 1 84172 477 7, which is a fantastically inspirational book using vintage textiles to make gifts for children.
One day, I would like to be able to create quilts like this and this and this, but I doubt it.
Thankyou to everyone who commented on my last post, you really helped me to stop getting in such a tizzy about it all. : )
