Another diversion

Ok, so I did it again. I deviated from finishing the little quilt. I just had to make these little heads and since neither myself nor my daughter have ever made a doll's face, I thought I would make a few in case of 'accidents.' Actually, I asked my daughter to draw them - chicken that I am.
A couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to win another giveaway. Felt from Felt-o-rama. I have plans for some of this stuff but I have a few other things to finish up first.
This lovely piece of fabric is the backing of the little quilt I am working on. I bought it on sale a while ago. I figure it would come in handy one day for something I would make for my eldest daughter and her husband. They are the outdoorsy types with all the toys - boat, ATV, snowmobile. They always try to make time for fishing and are always willing to take family and friends out. Their recent purchase of a house in BC had a few things going for it - loads of property and right on the river.

  3. Hi Dolores,

    What fun making a little doll.
    There are quite a few here, making them.
    Well done for winning the felt - that will be handy for some of your projects. Also the quilt backing material is lovely.


  4. Hi Dolores:

    Thanks for visiting my blog. The Games I was referring to are The Highlands of Durham Games in Uxbridge Ontario. Hubby and I have been to the Fergus Games many times though.


  5. I want to see the dolls when they're done! I love making faces. Love that backing fabric - and congrats on the win!

  6. Lucky you winning all that felt. I just love baxter too, will you let his coat grow for the winter? 'Cos I quite like him shaggy :)

  7. thanks for visiting my blog... wow I was thrown aback with that Winston Churchill Monument there.. I did used to work in his regiment;s officers mess in the army I was just a cleaner but wow that monument bought back memories as all his artefacts were in the mess room. I loved what you showed us the needlecase is lovely and I love the outdoorsy material.
    I thought of you I bought a kiddies book which had moose in which I thought would make a good applique design, eskimos, moose and fish hee hee
