The other day I was asked if I would do a custom order for patchwork pillows. It was such a ball that I have made more! For these I have combined Heather Bailey fabrics from all three of her collections. I don't know how those silly dolls, Fru Leren and Fru Mongstad snuck into the photo. They like to do that. They are so used to being in the limelight...
You have all been so nice! I have felt positively lifted several feet off the ground from the enormous amount of good cheer you have given me! Thank you for all the encouragement, both for the things that I make and for the tutorial. I was nervous about it since I had never done one before and wanted to make it very clear. I so appreciate all of you who wrote to me about it. Then it was a huge thrill when Hege wrote me today and let me know that she had already made a little flower to decorate a pretty dress!
I want to thank in particular
Melissa P. who also has already made flowers with my tutorial and has posted them on the flickr group!
for assiting me in telling the world about the give away! Eeek! We have two winners!
Guess what? I was featured on Cuteable! And a mama and baby showed up here. The very kind Tara also featured my matryoshkas today. I fear my matryoshkas might let it get to their heads... all this fame... Many thanks to you for these fun features!
I haven't made any non-floral dolls for some time now and these adorable Japanese fabrics (the deer one on Fru Osterberg is from Lecien and the lamb is Japanese but I am sorry I don't recall who made it) inspired me to make some non-flowery dolls. The chicken fabric on Fru Bondegård is an old favorite of mine.
I had time to list the dolls in my Etsy shop tonight, but it is getting late and I will have to leave the patchwork pillows for another day.
I decided I would try my hand at crochet today, and maybe I will have something pretty to show you soon... Are you doing any crafting today?
