I finished that doll quilt

As you can see, it has pride of place among the dolls in our house.  Hopefully the dolls won’t notice the flaws — the mis-matched corners, the wonky dimensions, the fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants machine quilting (see below), the binding that looks remarkably better on the final edge than on the first edge.

I’ve already got some fabric picked out for the next doll quilt.  I am loving the fabric hand-me-downs — it makes me feel very free to practice and to screw up.  Meanwhile, I picked up this great reference book:

Every once in awhile, I get a hankering for some colorwork and this book is going to be a great inspiration.  Before the book arrived, I winged it on this new sweater for my new dog:

And, finally, I am continuing to love my new Audible subscription.  I’ve listened to Little Women (heavenly!) and Bossypants, read by Tina Fey herself.  (My girl crush on her is now firmly cemented.)  I’m now onto The Great Gatsby.  Loving every minute of these books.
