I promised you the squirrel quilt...
Mom's great grandmother Crego made it.
It appears to be a summer bedspread because it is just one layer. Mom isn't sure if that was the intention or if perhaps it was just never made into a proper quilt. It is beautiful in any case and barely used at all.
Each of these quilts in my mother's possession are such treasures! It is so wonderful to be able to share them here with other's who appreciate the incredible time and effort put into making them.
Etsy was once again an easy place for me to get some new supplies, this time baker's twine in 4 colors from nicabee.
I made a skirt for Lilly from the curtain fabric I picked up awhile ago. She has only worn it once so far, under another dress. She is really into the layered look these days... and it wouldn't have photographed well.
I have also been sewing up a storm and there are a few new dolls in the shop today and more on the way soon. I just loved carrying my babies around in a sling, mei tai, or wrap. Ever since I began making dolls a few months ago I have been wanting to make some baby carrying mamas. For these I have cut into some of my US fabric purchases of Amy Butler, Kaffe Fassett and Martha Negly fabrics. The slings are sewn into the mamas (ouch!) and the babies are nestled in quite snugly, but they can also be taken out and played with!
I hope that your weekend was really good! I am looking forward to another week of lovely Norwegian summer and mom is coming to visit us in 2 weeks!
