A mist has been hanging over the city for days like a soggy blanket. You almost want to tell the weather to just rain and get it over with. But weather doesn't listen to mere mortals.

This quiltie is for a coffee-loving friend. She is called Queen of Caffeine.


I am not a much of a doll maker, but as you may know, I like to try my hand at new things. So I resized my Katie's-telephone-book-method painting, printed it onto fabric and made a dollie, complete with hanger. Plain, but sweet, I think! She is leaning on my frog, next to a little nest I made.

  6. Oh Colette, she is wonderful. You are too MUCH of a doll maker. :) The Queen of Caffeine is wonderful, too and I bet Jenny will just love her piece.

    You are an amazing and inspiring woman. I'm always so glad that I've stopped by your blog.

  7. I meant to say "you are so, MUCH of a doll maker." But too much works too, I guess. LOL
