A doll

This is a project I have wanted to start and complete for some time & that is to make a doll for my darling Hj. Nothing is more wonderful than having her along side me all day long. I cried myself to sleep the other night thinking that she will be going to school soon & we wont be together all the time.

Darn school - I really don't understand why they need to be there 5 days a week.

The doll pattern I purchased from Wee Wonderfuls. It is a cute and easy pattern (I am making Kit!) - although some of the drawings were not marked correctly and I had some trouble with sewing as the clothing is just so tiny!

But I hope it is the first of many dollies - did you know that I have four nieces now!

Project Patchwork

Last month I was invited by Lizzy to participate in Project Patchwork. A little parcel of lovely fabric arrived in the post and away I went. I got most of it sewn up on the train last week to a workshop in Melbourne - just to find the venue was locked and I had to turn around and travel right back home again!

Project Patchwork is a collaborative quilt to raise funds for the Australian
Cambodia Foundation.

My job is to contribue throug designing a patch using swatch of fabric.

I hope to recieve some raffel tickets soon to sell to fund raise for the charity.

Here are some images of my work in progress.

Lizzy emailed to say he project will be featured on Michi Girl , The
Design Files, Sarah McNeil's blog and will also be promoted by Craft

But it is a great opportunity in the planning and organising of a group that I hope to get off the ground with the Bendigo Sustainability Group next month in Bendigo - Knotty Ladies - but more about that soon.

Ps the dancing girl at the top she is going to appear somewhere in my patch!
