Doll Quilt Swap

I stumbled across this cute little site today, and I'm glad that I did!!! It's called Doll Quilt Swap, and it's GREAT... What you do is make a mini (doll) quilt using the instructions that they give you on their site and send it off. You in turn will receive a mini quilt back. You can be an experienced quilter or a beginner, it doesn't matter, the team at Doll Quilt Swap will help you out with any problems that you might have.

Sign up is from the 3rd of June to the 17th June. The deadline to send out your completed Doll Quilt is 18th July. If your interested in joining the 'ring' the instructions for signing up can be found here http://dollquiltswap.wordpress.com/.

On another note.... The weather here has been fantastic! Yesterday afternoon, after work, I planted some pansies in my garden. You can't quite see them in this photo, but they're the little green spec in the middle of the straw. I can't wait for them to come out in flower. There is nothing better then fresh home grown flowers....

Today's 'Get Happy Now' Tip #8 - Don't envy people who are happy. On the contrary, be happy for their happiness.

  2. I love the doll quilt site too! What a find! that would be good if you did it too. Wouldn't it be funny if we got each others quilts?
    The nights and mornings have been cold here too, but the days are just spectacular!
    Once you get strated on your gloves you'll have them knocked over in a day or two, then your hands won't be cold anymore.

    Love JoJo
