My first cloth doll..

...with a face! And what a pretty face.

I have made a cloth doll once, and it still exists ..without a face. It must be more than 10 years old now.

This one is from Colleen's free pattern: Pinelope. I didn't have all the right materials so I just made it up as I went along. I did make a point in getting the right colouring pencils though, and I think it shows.

I am really's a project done in a couple of hours!


Quilting - aplique

I have started a new set of quilting and patchwork classes. I have decided to dedicate myself to different techquines. The panel below is based on 'applique'...basically applying different layers of fabrics.

I got the little cages in Portugal.
We used to have them when I was little to hold crickets...Weird, I know...
But now I find them so cute!!! Don't you agree?

Quilting-all other blocks

because I am so slow in posting sometimes...most times...I have decided to post all the other blocks I did in my Patchwork and Quilting classes so I can show you what I have been doing lately.

Lesson 7 : Bear's Paw

Lesson 8: Baskets

Lesson 9: Log Cabin

Some day I will put them all together into a quilt...someday...
