I am thinking about dolls right now.
Because what is a Doll Quilt without a doll?
Enter stage left; Miss Kitty.
She has been dancing around in my head for a while, and I thought it was time I got her out of my daydreams and onto the dance floor.
Kitty here, is made from an old pattern I designed many years ago, when there were small children in my daily life. I was sewing quite a bit in those days--mostly out of necessity, and I made a dangly cloth kitty doll as a teething toy out of some left-over scraps. It started a frenzy of doll making, and soon I was off and running with my first business enterprise. I made dozens of them for friends and sold some in shops and craft fairs.
So, recently I went digging through my files, pulled this pattern out again and dusted it off. (I save everything--to my credit and dismay).
With a little revamping, a star is born!
