spending some time with the dollies...


This weekend I found my mind thinking about my Swan Lake quilt. The hexies flowers are growing and I now have 41 flowers made but there needed to be some appliqueing happening. All the dollies were stitched for one side and only 3 had heads and arms so it was time to get the rest of them 'armed and headed'.
 The centre block also had one basket that needed to be appliqued, well tick that off too.
I am happy at the progress achieved.... I have realised that I also need to make the little circles that are held between the two girls. That can wait for now as I have another side ready to go with all the girls dresses ironed on waiting for applique.
Very happy with this weekend's work.
Just had to post this cute Maisie pic. While I was stitching she snuggled up onto no1 son's chest and shmoosed him while he massaged her. What a princess!


Hope you have had a great weekend
Marina

Wonderful progress, I can see why you are happy. The dollies are looking lovely. Such a cute photo of Maisie, and I love your new header.

That is one tasty heap of hexies you have there girl.. luv em! I'm wondering just how many dollies are dancing Swan Lake around your quilt. Looks like a cast of thousands to me. They are so pretty.... so is the lovely Masie. Too cute for words. I'd swap places with No1 son in an instant.... I could really do with a good schmoose ;o)

Oh it's a hard life being Maisie! *LOL*
Great progress on the dollies...when a project calls out there really isn't any other choice but to answer the call, I'm sure the dollies are much happier with heads and arms..

Hello Marina, it's a long time I response to your blog, but I'm so tired that I just made my blog. What your doing is fantastisch!

I love the Doll Patern , I know the Quilt, but I want to make only the Doll-Patern, because it's to make a quilt with that doll on the side, in the middle something I 'll paint and 'll quilting to sell for the brest-cancer patient. Would it be possible to mail me in exchange for a patern or I pay you for it? Let me know by mail : Carientje1951@hotmail.com

Thank you hugs and friendship Carine-Patchworkstar
