Tonight I'm working on a few small old quilt bears.I have 3 finished and 2 in the works. This is the last of this quilt. I always try to use every last piece. Hence the small bears. Its hard on the hands and most of the sewing is on the top side. But aren't they darling ? I'll post their progress.

Tonight I'm working on a few old quilt pillows. Love this quilt pattern its a 9 nine patch and the squares are postage stamp size. Backs are of small check homespun. I just coffee dyed them and waiting to see how they dry. Don't know if I like the way they are taking the dye. We'll see in the morning.

Isn't she a darling. My first prairie doll. Made from osnaburg and stuffed with fabric scraps. Her dress is from vintage ticking. She's a nice size measuring 21 inches tall. She was fun to make. I used a pattern by Dusty Cupboard Prims.
