At last a finished quilt and new dolls.


It's finished at last, I left Ediths quilt hanging on her cot before I left London.


I stitched and stitched to be able to complete it.


I decided it would be nice with a curved border and added a label on the back.


I need to add the time she was born and her birth weight when I next visit.

These are two Raggedies that I made for each of my Grandaughters.

One had to be washed and her hair felted but I rather like her new look.!!..


Beau, the cat, had to be included too.


Back home and I'm working on some new Prim dolls.

The first is 'Lavender'


She works in the lavender fields and so smells divine.
She has a checked homespun dress and a woollen shawl.
She  is rag stuffed and always carries a Lavender bag.
She makes and sells pretty scented doll bowl fillers.

All my quilting friends need a Guardian Angel.

She is the keeper of lost pins and needles and can sooth those sore fingers.
She can help you get the smallest stitches and the neatest points.

                           Who wouldn't love to have her near!!


 She sits on her own little four patch quilt in faded colours and has her little mouse for company.

I have used a pattern from My Primitive Saltbox. Thank you so much to a wonderful designer.


We have lots of April showers here at the moment so it's nice to keep dry and keep stitching**!!!***.


Have a great week,
xox Angela.

Hey Angela, how you aren't posting? I looked up datura, but not sure. The images I saw showed swirly flours with pointed tips. But the ones here are rather long and fluted. I have no idea what they are but they are blooming in places where it is obvious they weren't put on purpose. Hope all is well with you. Best wishes, Tammy
