    I have the top done for TooManyUFOs if she wants wonky. Found some blocks I had worked on while back and just put them into a little quilt. Wonky is good.

    I have not started! But I did spend the last few days playing with Jaba from the quilting board. She and her hubby arrived Friday and we have been having lots of fun. Wine tasting.. quilting.. cooking.. just enjoyable time. Tomorrow we will go to lunch the quilt shop (oh yeah) and maybe the casino just to lose some money. Or maybe just to lunch but surely to fun. The concept has taken root and I am getting it down inside my mind so it will whip up nicely. I sure hope my partner loves it as much as I am just thinking of it

    Here today... why what a lucky bunch we are.

    I would also love to see pictures of that doll and clothing collection! I just have to be careful not to let my OCD take me away. I really don't need another obsession, and that sounds like a good one. LOL I have my partners DQ almost done. Needs a label, then will spend some time adding embelishments. You can never "finish" a crazy, you just have to stop. Here is a sneeky peeky!!

    I have a double window and a shelf going across the entire window is filled with dolls I rescued at garage sales, lol! I used to have a bed in this room and when you awoke in the morning, the first thing you saw were little feet hanging over the edge, lol! I don't care if people think I'm weird or not--I still have fun!

    The hideous crocheted doll in the 3rd picture is one my DH bought from his Mom's church sale--he brought it back to me after a trip to Knoxville to see his mother. For some reason I wasn't along on that trip--don't remember why now. In this collection (someone mentioned having a few--so do I) I have Roseanne, Barbie, The Lone Ranger, (Drowsy, given to me by my sister when I was 25) The StayPuffMarshmallowMan, The Fonz, The Gerber boy/girl dolls, a Kewpie doll and many other dolls to watch over me every day. They make me smile!

    Good for you! They are adorable. Reminds me of decades ago when I was a girl. There was a house not far from us that someone turned into a doll museum. It wasn't open to the public, just a house that someone owned and filled with dolls. You had to knock at the door and hope that someone was in. Thousands and thousands of dolls. I have to admit, in some ways it was kind of creepy ... all those eyes on you! But fun. I wonder if it's still there.

    I typed a reply to you, Krystyna, about what you could do with the 100% Virgin Wool Samples but I don't see it here so will say again, haha.

    Wash in hot water, dry on hottest heat in dryer and felt it! Then you can make a boiled vest (big money for these in stores) make a penny rug or table runner, use the felted wool to cut applique shapes for wallhangings (it doesn't ravel after it's felted). Lucky you! Beautiful fabrics and I got tickled at their line on their tag. Forgot what it said now but was cute.

    "Many of the designs are entirely novel but not eccentric" was what was on the wool sample tags. The fabrics were just gorgeous!

    Great ideas, Bertie! I have so much of it that I was thinking of patchwork shawls and scarves to sell on Etsy when it gets cold out ... maybe I'll serge them. Or ... a patchwork throw? I'll have to look up boiled vests. Mysterious!

    Buslady the crazy quilt looks beautiful. Crazy quilts remind me of my great grandmother. I used to go to visit her when I was young and that was my first introduction to quilting. I remember sewing on her old black, knee petal Singer making plenty crazy squares that had sheet foundations. Of course they were utility quilts we used, not all fancied up. In Maine, especially years ago in the older houses you had quilts for warmth, not so much for decoration.
    My best childhood memories were sewing on that old black Singer, which is why I collect them now.

    Felt it and then make penny rugs. They are real popular.
