Doll Quilt Swap #4


I've received my lovely package from my Doll Quilt Swap #4 from very kind Toni Duke, all the way over in Miles City, USA.

She's done a lovely job and really put a lot of effort into it. Thanks Toni!! Toni also included some handmade postcards and other little goodies, but my daughter has already distributed them across the house so I haven't gotten a picture of those. My daughter loves the quilt and is often borrowing it for her dolls.

Now I just have to hunker down and finish my quilt that I need to send off. Hopefully the recipient will like it!

On other news, I had a fantastic day today at the Future Families Fun Day. Quite a lot of people attended today and I got to meet some lovely women and their children. There was an opportunity for the children to do some dancing with beautiful music and there was quite a variety of stalls. A massage therapist who specializes in helping new parents bond with their newborn, a naturopath, a Tri-Nature consultant,and the Australian Breastfeeding Association, amongst others.

And I have an order to make two Steiner dolls for a lovely mother to give to her children at the birth of her third child. What a lovely thoughtful gesture of this mother, to think of giving her two elder children a special gift upon the arrival of their new sibling. I'm really looking forward to creating more Steiner dolls. Tomorrow I shall post a pic of the new boy who is now finished and looking for a new home!
