Camryn's quilt

I finally finished the body of Camryn's quilt. My sister, Kathy, embroidered all the little ragamuffins and I sewed them into a quilt. The borders aren't on yet but I'm working on them this evening. It's going to be soooo cute!!!!

Well let's see if this will work this time. Photos of the bench

Finished an old project!!!

Yahoo!!! I finally finished the bedroom bench that I started several months ago. A few of us in our embellishment group decided to make footstools and benches after seeing some in a nice gift shop here in Vegas. The footstools started at $750.00 and went up from there. I started with a piece of 3/4 inch plywood and unfinished legs from the hardware store. I'm so glad that it is finished and in my bedroom!!!

designing a doll

Since I've been invited to teach an art doll class at the Desert Quilters Show in February I better get busy and design a doll. This is as far as I've progressed so far. I'm just kinda doing it as I see it in my head. After I'm satisfied I'll make and write the pattern. It is really rather exciting and fun.
