Embroidered Quilt Block

Well here it is. My first quilt block that is all embroidered. Not to bad for an amateur. It is all free hand and my own design. Mary taught me how to do french knots so I went a little crazy. This block is in a quilt I am making. I will show pictures of that once it is finished and the recipient gets it. Don’t want to spoil the suprise.

A Baby Doll Named Hope

First I just have to say that this is my 174th post, so it won’t be much longer until I have my 200th post give away. Hum what shall I give. Gotta think of some thing good.

I have been playing around with making different patterns for a baby doll. Here is what I have come up with so far. I have named her Hope. As in hoping for a better tomorrow for all our babies. She measures roughly 9 1/2 inches tall and the bottom measures about 6 inches wide. The print I used for this one is a cat print. The cats have wings.

Let me know what you think. I think that depending on what color the fabric is will determine the color of her hair. I left the yarn in a loop so that it wouldn’t unravel. Of course if it unravels it might look more like curly hair. Just some things to think about.

Homemade Doll

So I attempted to make another doll. This time I made the pattern bigger and gave her some funky pink hair and a heart shaped face. She also has a pretty purple butterfly on her tummy. Joshua asked me what I named her. I told him she didn’t have a name yet and asked him what we should name her. He said to name her Holly. So Holly it is.
