Muddy Colours

Raggy Rose is finished now and all wrapped up ready for her train trip. Unfortunately neither dh or ds would carry her on the train so she could enjoy the journey, she HAS to go in the bag or she would not be going I was told.....
She is meant to have a lace doily thing on her chest with a suffolk puff and button on top of this. The children and I decided that her dress was too pretty to cover up with this, we preffered her without it. Also other suffolk puffs were meant to be on her shoes and one in her hair, nah she is fine the way she is!
Some of my scraps left over from making A Gardeners Journal quilt.

My finished quilt top yesterday. The lighting in the photo doesn't do the quilt justice, maybe I will get a better pic when it is quilted.
I am so so SO pleased to have this quilt top finished!

I have also finished off a little swap gift to take to GDITC at Nundle in March.

Why wouldn't they want to carry her on the train?! Men! She is absolutely adorable. The dress and shoes are perfect and I love her hair. Well done on the quilt top! It really turned out nicely. Such a sweet and happy pattern and terrific choice of fabrics you've used for it!

Hey Bec! Well done on finishing your GJ top!! It looks FABULOUS! And Dolly is a cutey, too. Hmmm ... I have an angel dolly I made and her dress is that same olive floral, I think ... obviously we both have excellent taste in dolly dresses! Tee! Hee! Hee! Poor dolly being put in the bag ... hope she has a snack to take and breathing holes! :0) Bear Hugs! KRIS

Bec your quilt is gawjus and I just LOVE your Raggy Rose, she's simply adorable!! Are there enough scraps for a cushion - maybe with one of the stitcheries from the quilt too ... that would look so good with the quilt ;o).
