For the first time ever, I sewed something for a baby doll. Since I was one of those girls who was all about her dolls when I was growing up, I know how important it is for the little mommy to make sure that the dolls are properly clothed, fed, and warmed. And, since I've got a plethora of friends with babies these days, I thought I could pass along a little love in the form of a doll quilt. This little quilt (16"x24") is for a friend's daughter for Christmas. My mom, who was visiting me this weekend, helped me come up with the idea and encouraged me to try something new with the quilting pattern. I tried a little loop-de-loop deal - it did go pretty quickly though it took me a few minutes to get the feel for it. Don't look too closely ... I had a few snaffoos, but I kept them in there and just kept going. Sorry for the dark photo quality.
In other baby news (no, not me silly), congrats to my dear friends Katie and Adam R. on the birth of their first daughter, Rylie Joy, last night! Apparently, the text message announcement read "6 lb 14 oz beautiful" (I don't actually know first-hand what it said, because we may or may not have blocked text messaging from our phone ...). However, I can't wait to hold 6 lb 14 oz beautiful in my arms!
