 WARNING #1 - Snow is on it's way.
Recently I stopped in at the Attic Window Quilt Shop to find that the Doll Bee was in session. Julie L. who heads this group told me that you can make these small snowman with her, as a class is being offered on Nov. 5 and/or  Nov. 12.   It is a one session class.  The fee is $5 and the pattern is $9.50.  Julie asks that you please sign up two to three weeks in advance so that she can get the patterns in on time. The Snowman is 5.5" inches tall and has a flannel stocking cap and fabric scarf. It has tiny twig hands and stitched eyes and mouth and a toothpick nose. Call the shop to register.
WARNING #2 - The Big Bad Wolfe is on his way.
The day that I was there, the women were making Little Read Riding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf.  Above is Barb V.'s dolls.
I had to show you a close up of this Bad guy with his tongue hanging out.  So cute!
While there, Julie showed me these apples they were making for Red's basket.  I can't imagine working on something so small!  Note, in above picture they are in the basked Red is carrying.
 Later in the day, Julie sent me these pictures of a quilt that Shirley Starts made.  
  The pattern is Vintage Tin from Crab Apple Hill.
 A close up of Shirley's beautiful work.
Julie said that Shirley is very proud of this quilt and well she should be.  It is stunning.

I can't imagine working on anything so small either! They sure are cute though.

Loved seeing a finished Vintage Tin quilt! I really like that pattern.
