Xmas Sewing

In true "Rose" tradition i leave the Xmas sewing till the last minute but ive had fun with it!!!! First 'Cab off the rank" was my gorgeous niece......now i know, cause im psychic lol, that Tamika has asked for a doll (that cries, wees, eats etc) for Xmas, so i made her this quilt to wrap the dolly in:

......she is 5 and a true "girlie" girl (like her aunt!!!!) so she needed a bag, u know for her important stuff, lipstick, wallet "pretend mobile phone lol:

I did quilt a flower "in matching thread" yet it is so "matching" u cant see it grrr!!!!

So then i thought about other "females" in our Xmas list...........ive started a quilt for my mum (pics later) and then i decided to recycle some 2007 BOM blocks ( i knew i made these for a reason!!!), to make a table runner for my friend and neighbour:

I need to applique some flowers on the border..........yet my supply of Vilosfix was low, no worries, i have tomorrow!!!!...........ill sew until Xmas Eve........its all good, i love this "silly"season!!!


  1. Lovely projects, Rose! The special ladies are all going to love their gifts!

    And...is it really...last minute? I was thinking that perhaps I had about a week or so until I could say "last minute." Uh-oh!

  2. Love your little doll quilt and purse! She's going to be very happy with those. Aren't little girls fun? The table runner is gorgeous. No one would think it wasn't what the blocks were intended for.

  3. Adorable doll quilt and bag, she is going to love them. I really like your table runner, the fabrics are lucious.

  4. Sweetie, Tamika is going to love that little doll quilt (guess you know she'll be getting the doll, *lol*) and the lovely bag :o) They are so cute!

    The runner looks great - way to go on recycling blocks! (you know I remember that nearest one from when I first started reading your blog?).

  5. Beautiful projects!!!
    Kind regards,
