Little Cottages





A little while back I made two little quilts with a dear friend-- using a pattern from the "Little Quilts All Throughout The House"--- quilting book. Written by, Alice Berg, Mary Ellen Von Holt and Sylvia Johnson. Carol and I fell in love with these "little cuties"---- and one cottage lead to the other and this is what we created.

For the door knobs we placed little buttons on the doors and used novelty caricature fabrics for the windows and some of the cottages doors. This was one of my most favorite projects that I have made and I hope you might like to create some cottages also, sometime---I know you will have as much fun creating them as we did. We also made a memory that day of laughter, creating and playing! (Don't forget to click on the picture for a close up view).

Hugs, Carolyn :)

Scrappy quilt made by "Lucinda!"




I'm finished! I burned the midnight oil last night completing this little "Scrappy" quilt. I hand quilted it too! What do you think?

My little doll bed is from a garage sale---it has a few worn places and a little nick or two--but, I polished it up and I think it looks pretty good. I found a scrap of cotton eyelet and made a puffy bed skirt. Snappy huh?

I'm going to take a little nap-- ( in my new bed) I am a little tuckered out---but, I sure had fun!

Thank you for all your "sweet" comments you left me the last few days. You are the BEST!

Doll hugs, Lucinda
