Crickey, it was crazy here today.
As soon as I walked in the door, after dropping the two munchkins off at school, I received a phone call from a friend who lives around the corner. She was in a right state because she had locked herself out of their garage and couldn't get her two boys to school, or herself to work!
I raced around, picked them up, took them all to school/work then had to go up to the University to watch master 7 at swimming. Then it was home to finish off some faces for some more Pussikins, which were on order, and some dolls, sewed up the Pussikins and two more dolls, listed them all on Etsy, picked the kids back up again, made dinner, now here I am absolutely exhausted!!!!
In between all of these orders that have been happening lately I have been desperately trying to finish off a baby gift for a lovely little girl who was born to some friends of ours in Seattle. I decided to make her a mini quilt with her name on it.....
The fabric in the Pussikins on the left had to be purchased in a hurry yesterday afternoon.
I had an order from a lady who really liked this fabric but I hadn't any left.
So, a quick email to Ballarat Patchwork and the lovely Emma emailed back to say they still had some of it!
Ok, panic over..

Whilst at the Patchwork shop, I noticed they had 20% off at the moment so these lovely fabrics came home with me too..... and turned into this....

Annika is in my Etsy shop now....

And so is Maria!
I'm off to have my dinner and then do.....NOTHING!!!!!

Wow, Kathryn! And I thought my life was hectic. It made me tired just reading about your day! Hopefully you'll get some hard earned rest this evening!
Best wishes,

Hope you have a most relaxing evening - you have certainly deserved it!! Love the little baby quilt - so sweet. Your latest dolls are gorgeous. It is surprising how different they look with different fabric combinations.
