Made some progress on the autumn doll,
had two dye pots going yesterday, and a little more kantha stitching on a 4 x 4 linen square.
I've also made more progress in the studio clean-up and organization. I'm not finished, but I may never be; now that I've made changes that result in a more compatible work space, the need to use the space creatively has already begun. Legs for a doll, feet for another, stitching, quilt planning, and so on and on.
I saw this over at Nancy's blog Pomegranate Trail. Prison inmates knitting--what a great way to lower the blood pressure and improve one's mood. I always enjoy seeing how crafts like quilting and knitting can improve lives, especially for those in prison.
Deborah at The Wednesday Quilter had a nice post about AAQI and the $679,000 raised since 2006.
Michelle Palmer is having a give away of a beautiful vintage doll dress with her delightful drawn cardinals.
I love her little drawings of birds, and animals, and right, now, Christmas Snowmen. Lots of great Christmas gift possibilities.
Dark Alley makes the most wonderful, charming, and curmudgeonly alley cats! Each one is a distinct personality, broody, petulant, and full of exquisite detail.
Visit her blog to see some of the creatures she has created in the past or her Etsy shop to see which ones are currently for sale.
Bryce Eleanor hasn't run fever for over 24 hours, and Amelia has spoken with the school about policy. She may be going back tomorrow, but kissing and eating or drinking after her will be verboten. Kind of difficult with an almost 4 year old.
She is feeling fine, though, and according to Amelia, has plenty of energy. Good immune system, evidently.
Have a great day, y'all! (Southern-ism for second person plural)
