Good thing one of the things I find most relaxing is sewing. The last few days I've been working on the Paper Dolls, mostly stitching in their hair and some of the details on their dresses. Here's one group:
I think it's really adding to their personalities. Is it weird that I think of them as individuals?

Their hair is just raw edge applique, which I'm almost never happy with because the edges ravel, but I think it will be okay because it's hair, which is supposed to be a little bit messy.
I started playing with layouts, but they have to wait for a few more friends to show up. I need just a couple more with black or white dresses so that the layout will work. It's kind of silly, but I want it so that every one of the girls will be holding hands with another. Nobody goes alone, right?
One other thing that I did this weekend was to meet up with these lovely ladies:
On the left is Nancy from Pug Mom Quilts, in the center is Leeanna from Not Afraid of Color, and I'm the weirdo on the right. (Feel free to ignore me.) We had lunch and went to the Kaffe Fassett exhibit at the Michener Museum, which was a fascinating museum, if a bit small. I'm not a big fan of Kaffe, but it was a nice shot of color and a chance to meet up with some great people. They even got to meet the hubs, very briefly, which is very, very rare as he's generally anti-social.
On top of being a great Pugmom, Nancy is a very sweet and giving person. Look at this great fleece and flannel blankie she made for my new grandson (no, he's not here yet):
How sweet is that? You can never have too many blankies, and this one has that great satin binding that kids love. And Leeanna made us both great pincushions. Here's mine:
Thank you so much, ladies, for the fun and for the lovelies. Both are much appreciated!
