It is Doll Week at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  Class teacher, Julie said that since Christmas is coming, all the Christmas elves are meeting every day this week at the shop.  She said is was the time for you to bring whatever doll you want to finish in time for Christmas.  Julie sent me this picture of the doll that Shirley brought.  She said that Shirley just finished this awesome Columbian doll dress.  Thank you Julie.  This doll is adorable.
Change of subject:  Do you have your block finished for this month’s Sampler?  I worked all afternoon on this one.  Naturally I waited until the last minute and could not read my notes or remember what Chris said about the easy way to do this block.  However, I did remember those piecing instructions that Vickie gave me while we were on retreat and I think it has made a difference.  I did have to do some un-stitching but I’m pleased with this one.  Remember, the first class for this month’s Sampler is this Saturday at the shop.
Congratulations to Robbie:  Remember Robbie who used to work at the shop?  We miss her and love hearing what she is up to.  You have to pick up this copy of Steampunk Magazine because Robbie is once again published in it.
This page shows some of the items Robbie makes.  She is a fantastic recycler because Robbie takes things that others would call junk and makes beautiful works of art out of them.  Note the tea kettle spout on the clowns head.  Congratulations Robbie.  We’re so happy for you.

ON ANOTHER NOTE:  During Quite Time has a tutorial for a scrappy armrest pincushion.  She uses selvages but you could easily use any fabric.  What a nice gift this would make for your sewing friend.

Until next time,

Stay Calm! Stay Kind! Stay Positive!
