Sherbet Pips :-)

My little great niece had to undergo major surgery so of course a little quilt was in order. She loves dogs and I love Sherbet Pips' little dogs so I made just a simple quilt using white and the pink print.

 Do you think she is checking out my quilting to see if it is up to par?  ;-)

 Really giving it the once over! I think it passed muster though.

Hope everyone is doing well,

Petunia Baby Giveaway

Thank you so much everyone!!! What a nice surprise for me to have so many people commenting!  I decided to give away 2 babies instead of just one.  

Paulette is the first name chosen.....I think Paulette has been reading my blog since I first started it. She is a fellow quilter and loves fabric as much as I do. I am thrilled that one of my little dolls will be helping her sew.

Wow!! SEW adorable! Thanks for the chance to win one!

And Berrie is believe it or not my dollmaking mentor. When I first started making dolls, I would look through Berrie's pictures of the dolls she had made over the years. Then I got brave enough to ask for a custom outfit and when she mailed it to me she included  dollmaking goodies. Little did she know that she would become my mentor and I would drive her crazy with questions. LOL  Now, I shall be making the teacher a  doll.....I hope I  will make her proud. :-)

Holy smokes Miss Cathy! Pick me! Pick me!

Please email me at so we can talk about skin, hair and eye color Berrie and Paulette.

Thank you again everyone,

Newest Little Dolls

I have been busy making customs dolls for people and just love how they all turn out with their own personalities. It still amazes me that these creations come from a lump of sheep's wool, cotton stockinette and cotton tricot. No one is alike.....regardless of how scientific I can be weighing and measuring they all still turn out different.

This little one went to a good friend who has had too much sorrow lately.

This little guy will be going to a new home at the end of the week. He is sporting new yarn for his hair.

 This one went to a Kindergarten class in Canada....oh to see all her adventures......

 This one is going to a lovely lady in the US who is such a delight to work with. Her hair was a happy dyeing accident. It was supposed to be brown, but turned out Plum.

I now have 8 quilt tops to be quilted......they are starting to stack up. In between dollmaking I quilt as much as I can.
What are you working on?
Take care,
