doll quilt swap...

I meant to post pictures of the doll quilt swap sooner...
but have been a little occupied !!

Sandy sent me this cute 1930's doll quilt...
and lots of other surprises from 
Long Island New York!


...and I sent her this 1930's doll quilt!


...the label I found for the back!


This swap was fun...I enjoyed making the little quilt!
This was the first doll's quilt I have made...
And I love the quilt I received from Sandy...
I am going to hang it on the wall when I organise the hanger!

You can see all the doll quilts at Christine's blog

crochet...african flowers

I was in the mood for some crochet...


...these are african flowers from here



...than I decided to add some little flowers!

large flower from here
small flower from here


...my inspiration is to make the hexagons with texture...
so I will add different textured wools and more colours...
and just see where it leads me!
...create as I go!!


...the last frangipani of summer!
Almost all the flowers are gone and soon the leaves as well...
as the cooler temps are approaching...
