Retail therapy

A few weeks ago, I bought  18 Bali fat quarters from Keepsake quilting.  I also  bought 200 X 4" charms, my third pack and a few haby items.  Last year I bought 2 packs of die cut diamonds.   I don't know what I'll do with the small charms yet but I'm  still thinking.  I used to buy Bali hearts to make  Caring Heart blocks but they are not on the catalogue any more.  The swing seat is where I'll be having lunch from now on, with the orange tree on my right and the lemon tree on my left behind me.

Holly Hobby

Here are the two dolls someone gave me.  I cut them out,  sewed up the seams and filled them with toyfill.  I hope this little girl is happy with them.  Our extended family is having Christmas day together,  I'm wondering if I should make a cloth doll as I had intended before I came across this in my stash.

A visit

This is Eirto, just 4 months old.  He brought his family to visit us before Christmas as they are all going to Japan for a few weeks.  His mum took this photo, he sat on his dad's lap and 'talked' to me  and smiled at me all through lunch time.  Dad and Mum  put him down for a nap but he was not having that.  Casey was very interested in this new person, but Eirto was not impressed, not scared, just not interested!!
