Choc chips, three dolls and 5 quilts and not necessarily in that order!

Monday again!  Where is the time going?  As soon as I farewell ed the boys out the front door to their bus I set about making a batch of mini chocolate chip muffins - some for the boys and some for Corrie from retromummy
I dropped five Quilts for Queensland on her doorstep this morning (after getting horrendously lost on the way - my TOMTOM hates me!) and I figured what mother of four littlies can't use a few chocolate chip muffins.  It was my way of say thank you for taking the time to organise Quilts for Queensland with all she has on her plate.
Some of the afternoon was spent sorting out some fabric for the back of a red scrappy project and a couple of other things I have in mind and the I started thinking about a fun project I want to do.  I told you about Sharon's Circle of Friends recently.  Well we have just about completed all the dolls but I think we might need an extra one and I decided that it might be funny to make two - one that is definitely demure and pretty and which fits in with all the others that have been done and one that is about as far away from Sharon's requirements as possible!!!  So, here is the pattern for my pretty one

 and here are my two other "options"!  A buxom punk with bright red (I think) spiky hair
 or a heavily pregnant lady - with a suitably padded belly.
I am leaning towards the punk as I think she is a bit more shocking - or at least she will be once I have finished with her!

That is about all for me tonight - it is late and I need to get to bed.
Till next time.....happy stitching!


  1. I can almost smell you chocolate chip muffins mmmm. You are so sweet. I would love to receive baked goods. Your drawings are awesome. Can not wait to ya'll's finished project.

  2. You had a busy day-----the muffins look yummy. The quilts will be appreciated, I am sure.

  3. I like the spiky hair punk lady! What do you think about adding a tattoo?!
