Almost Ready to Quilt

All About Polka Dots is almost ready to quilt.  Here it is still on the design wall.

There is a slight delay in working on my All About Polka Dots quilt, as I work on some small projects for an upcoming craft event in Cape Coral.  My friend, Rose asked me to share a sales table with her at a children's event.  I have never done this before and do not aspire to working craft fairs, but I have made several things as gifts in the past, for children and adults, so I am making  a few things for this event.  My husband has made doll beds for me in the past as gifts.  I make bedding and quilts and we gift them.  I have two left, so I'll see if they sell at this event?  I also knit doll sweaters, so I am doing that also. 
What do you think?  Do you enjoy making gifts?  Do you sell at craft fairs?

Grown-up Little Girls

Did you play paper dolls as a little girl?  I did.  I loved to dress paper dolls in an array of outfits, a little irratated when those little white fold over tabs, wouldn't keep the outfits in place.  Remember?
I am thinking of that, on this Sunday afternoon, as I dress the models on my story board.  Maybe this is why we love Project Runway, we love to leaf through fashion magazines, we loved, "The Devil Wears Prada!"  We just love playing dress-up and some of us love making art quilts!  Do you think???
