After Christmas, and taking some time off the relax with my little family, I'm back with a big mental backlog of quilty stuff to talk about! Not sure where to start, and usually what happens is that it all floats away into the ether without being mentioned at all!
I did actually manage to snap a quick pic of that dolly above. It's the ONE gift I made this year for Christmas. (just a minute, I did make two cell phone covers) Last year I got really stressed out around Christmas, and my big list of gifts to make didn't really help. So I decided this year that I wouldn't make any AT ALL.
Then I saw that cute book, Wee Wonderfuls by Hillary Lang, and thought of my mom who is a huge doll lover. So I gave her the book and had to make one of the projects from the book to go with it.
It was actually kind of fun, although I still prefer making quilts. (and don't laugh too hard at her funny hair! I didn't have any yarn!)
and my two blocks for the December quilt for do.Good Stitches. I think this quilt is going to make some little boy veeeeerrrryyy happy!
Just a little side note - I signed up for Rachel of Stitched In Color's Curves Class. You've probably heard about it, but if not, go here to check it out. I didn't plan to join, since I feel somewhat confident with curves, but after seeing this and this, I was totally sucked in. I wish I could have mentioned it last week when it was on sale, but I still think it's a great value, since you're sure to get lots of great project patterns, and anyways, circles and curves in quilts are just THE best!
