So this is my 100th blog post isn’t that exciting? I did allude to a giveaway a few posts ago and I am going to have one, but I am not quite organised just yet, so bear with me for a couple of posts and there will be a little partay where you could get something for free. Woo Hoo!

I forgot last post that I had made a friend of mine a softie and I hadn’t shown it to you yet.  I didn’t want to post about it before, because I was worried that she might inadvertently see it here and then the surprise would be ruined.  So here is the little dollie I made using the gorgeous pattern by Jhoanna Monte Aranez of One Red Robin, my copy was published in the magazine Dazzling Dolls by Express Publications.

It was the first time I used some of the decorative stitches on my Brother Innovis 600, other than to try them out on some scraps!  And incidentally also the first time I have machine stitched applique bits (the face and hood), I can be quite useless with curves and all that jazz.  The blue floral fabric is Flowers in Sky from Dazzle by Melissa Averinos, the other two fabrics are from It’s a Hoot by Momo for Moda, Trims I picked up at Spotlight and an Op shop and the rest is felt.

I also have two sneak peeks I haven’t shown you from my Block Swap Adventures last month. These are ones that I sent to my swap partners, not sure if they have them yet, so I won’t post the full pictures until I am sure they have.

Today I will be working on my block for Jen in PA, but no sneak peeks just yet… as I haven’t started.

It’s 7:39 am here, I have had a horrendous cold for nearly a week now and have not slept that well, which is why I am up early writing this, rather than sleeping on a Saturday Morning!

Good Night Stitchers
