How lucky am I?  I got to do my walking outside today.  The weather is supposed to take a turn for the worse later today.  So I'm enjoying our 40 degree weather while I can.  We're expecting half a foot of snow and much colder temperatures tonight.

Yes!  I got a package in the mail yesterday.  I was really hoping for two packages.  I signed up for Barbara Jackson's Berry Thief through Shining Needle Society. The class is starting on Monday.  So I was hoping to get the kit and stretcher bars in the mail.  Not yet.  Maybe today.  The package I did get was from England.  BFF#2 showed me an email about some one of a kind things from the guy who made Ophelia.  I was enamoured!  I bought two miniature doll houses.  They are very sweet.

 You can see that Ophelia's doll is just the right size for them.  How cute!

They open up:

I got Pocket #2 done on the Quaker Bag.  I have several other small pieces backstitched.

I have five blocks finished for the baby quilt.  I've got my fingers crossed that I'll have enough fabric to make twelve blocks total.  We'll see. .  .


  1. Love your doll's houses what scale are the houses ?

  2. Your doll house is so pretty X

  3. Ophelia looks great standing by her house.
    Those are so cute.
