Christmas sewing

Guess what?  I find that if I save a few pictures in post drafts to do at a later time, I seem to blog more regularly!  I uploaded these pictures to Blogger a few days ago, and here they are waiting for me to write about!

I did do some Christmas sewing.  Both my mom and dad are hard to shop for.  Neither of them ask for, or need that makes them perfect candidates to craft for in my opinion.  My mom recently redecorated a guest bedroom in her house...
I decided to make 4 dolls for the bed...representing me and my 3 sisters.  Each doll a little different ... each having some characteristic of each daughter.  I am always always cold...especially at my mothers old farm I am #3 ... wearing socks and long sleeves!  Mom loved these dolls, I plan to get more (better) pictures of them next time I'm to her house...I forgot to take pictures once they were all done!
I found the pattern for these dolls HERE

And for my dad...I made a scrappy tumbler quilt.  I had a friend cut these on her Accuquilt cutter (Thanks Patti!) and it helped me use up even more scraps!
And the back fabric was also all from stash!  One of those bargains from I just HAD to buy...well, I finally used it up!
OK, so time to put a few posts worth of pictures into blogger again!
