A Doll Quilt and A Bee Block

First up a very quick doll quilt, which will also be for Miss Jocie's birthday (3 weeks to go!)
I used some of my vintage sheet f/q stash, and an old bassinette sheet for this.

I figured it was as good a time as any to have a go at feathering....... So they are no where near perfect, but it was my first go, and really not too bad!

Next up, Kristy requested circles, pieced, appliqued etc, and this is what I came up with, both blocks are appliqued because I'm a sook and chickened out of piecing circles lol!, They came up well, And I'm kinda disappointed that they have to get sent back!!

In general ramblings of my life, I took Charlie and Imee to see Harry Potter 7, Deathly Hallows, last night, to say it was awesome, amazing, fantastic, wonderful etc still wouldn't really cut it, I LOVED it!!! We are big fans here!
And tomorrow night I'm off to my 10 year high school reunion, yep class of 2000, (please don't do the math!)
I'll be back soon with hopefully some more Christmas sewing done!
Thanks for stopping by!!

A Dolly for Miss Jocie

 Another pressie for Miss Jocie's 2nd Birthday, I'm getting it done early so I can get back to Christmas sewing! This gorgeous girl was made using a free pattern by the wonderfully talented Jhoanna from One Red Robin. I'm sticking with Jhoanna on this one and naming her Ruby..... Unless Miss Jocie has other ideas lol!

A shot of the back so you can see the gorgeous hedgehog fabric!

We also had some Daddy Make happening on the weekend, with a doll's cradle being made for the soon to be 2 year old, pics to come once its painted!!

So its been 5 days since my first concert, Sarah Blasko, and to be honest I just don't know what to say! It was amazing and awesome and I loved every second of it, but I feel rather overwhelmed and almost like it didn't happen at all, I always end up feeling like this after a big, anticipated event, surely I'm not the only one?

I also had some rather exciting news this morning, My big girls have been accepted for an out of zone placement at a new primary school, We are so relieved! For the first time in 3 years Imogene may make some friends!! and Charlotte will be reunited with her bestie, and both will hopefully learn that friendships last longer then a day or two at best! They will also be at the same school as my baby sister, which is another bonus, instant friends rule!! And that's not even getting started on the advantages of going to a school with actual real policy's and plans in place! Things are looking up in the mummy makes household!!
