Still Doing the Happy Dance!


Romily helped me open the quilt from our doll quilt swap today. I don't know who was more excited! The lovely and talented Helen has made the most gorgeous wonky log cabin! I am thrilled with it! I haven't been game to try a log cabin quilt yet and this has really inspired me. Romily of course has claimed it for herself - or, more precisely, for her doll Ginger. So now it's 'Ginger's Quilt'.


Thank you so much Helen!


Helen ran the swap and did such a good job getting us all organised. I had so much fun. This was my first swap and now I know why people love going in them. My swap receiver hasn't opened the one I made for her yet - I'm dying to know what she thinks of it! I hope she opens it soon - as soon as she gets home from work if she hasn't opened it already!

Okay, that's enough exclamation marks for one post!! Am going to enjoy the rest of my day off - it's a public holiday here in Canberra.

Awwww Lily! I'm so glad you both like it! It fits that dolls cradle nearly doesn't it? Ginger is an old nickname an old friend still calls me, so am stoked that its going to a doll called Ginger! It was a pleasure to sew for you. :)
