Freddy and Albert Quilt

This little redwork quilt is 22″ x 23″. Freddy, Albert and the snow family village are all original sketches. The village has “Snowmen are communities of little flakes”. These fellows were just bursting to get out so here they are. I embroidered the snowmen on diaper flannelette to give them a ‘snowy’ feeling using mostly chainstitch and French knot stitches. The quilt itself was sewn on the serger…. no little bits of thread to worry about and the seams were absolutely straight. You can download Albert here: Christmas in July and here: Christmas in March

February sunrise

February winter skies bring beautiful sunrises filled with rich colour. Gone are the silvers that are present in January. Spring is not far behind when you start to see colour in the morning skies. Unfortunately it didn’t last, as the sun rose higher the clouds moved in. Being up to greet the morning sun is a gift in itself.

Kaylee paper doll

Kaylee has been made for a cute little baby girl. Her mother knows who she is. Kaylee can play in the snow wearing her snowsuit, take mommy visiting in her little dress or play with her blocks in her sweater set. When she is tired and ready for her nap she can snuggle in her sleepers. Sweet dreams Kaylee.
