Carolyn makes these darling little dolls using small print fabric and doll house accessories! They are so cute! I told her I want a lesson on how to make them!
Carolyn also brought in a quilt to share with us! Her grandson is 6'4" and she made it for his freshman year at ISU!
Karen made this Antelope Canyon quilt, with plans to enter it into the fair this year....how many of you have quilts you were planning to enter into the fair this year? Stunning quilt, Karen...blue ribbon in your future!
Our mystery person shared her quilt with us, and it really is so pretty...unfortunately, as I was twisting her arm for a picture, I didn't even realize the quilt was sideways, when I took the picture....trust me when I say, it was so very pretty!
Friends, that is all I have for today! Have a lovely 4th of July weekend, and remember we are closed...so shop early in the week or place orders online.
