Hi everyone! Very exciting news from here this Friday--the girls are here! The girls are here!
Good thing, too. It was starting to get lonely around here.
Of course, I mean these girls:
Believe it or not, they almost got put into storage with my fabric, but they were rescued just in time, then finally made their way here to Pennsylvania. Hey, everybody makes packing mistakes and ends up giving an important box to charity or tossing out their tax receipts or something. At least I didn't do that! These girls just got stuck in a box going the wrong way. But it's all okay now, because they're back where they belong.
And they're here just in time to meet some of their new sisters! I've been behind, so this week I tried hard to catch up and made both last month's and this month's dolls. Here are the indigo girls, who are not really indigo but are at least blue:
That wild paisley skirt is actually a bit of fabric I saved from a Vera Bradley purse. It makes a great dress!
And here are some of the orange dolls:
Yes, that girl with the candy corn dress is wearing a witch's hat. It's just how she rolls. It's a fashion choice.
And the last three sisters for this week:
Gosh, they look happy.
I am getting close to finishing up this family, so I need to start thinking about setting options. I like the idea of them holding hands, which could almost be an "I spy" type of quilt, but I might also want to break it up so that it isn't quite so dizzying to look at all of them. Any one have any suggestions?
Hope everyone has a fantastic weekend. Along with the doll blocks, I also got a couple boxes of my scraps, which means lots of sorting and pressing in my future. (But, oh, how happy I am to be doing it!) I might also get to go to a quilt show, which we all know is just this side of heaven. It's exciting just to think about!
