braved using my cronky sewing machine


and made a dolly sized quilt. My sewing machine really needs looking at, its not very well, poor thing, though it was behaving well enough last night to let me make this. I was aiming for log cabin, I haven't tried it before, I dont have much patchwork experience really, only the odd bit of simple stuff. I dont know whether this is log cabin as it is a bit symmetrical, so it might be called something else. anyway, it started and finished in one night, and is a big hit with my littlest in particular.


So much so that I found her in the toy cot with dolly and playing like this. Though if I think about it now I understand why, we let our kids sleep in with us and havent used a crib since Esme was born, so thats just what mummys do!!

Oh I see now, Lucie is actually in the crib as well as dollie !
You started off log cabin, but then it changed, I'm sure dollie doesn't mind. Any how everyone does log cabin, so it's good to have a veriation on the theme ! (After all you were never one to follow the crowd, your far too individual for that !)

Do you mean you made the whole thing in one night? Wow!

Sorry I haven't been visiting for ages, many computer disasters and stuff :)

I love the paper blossom, especially the white one with the red wall...it looks gorgeously chinesey.
