10 Doll Quilts

I just finished 10 new doll quilts for the Giving Doll.  That is what has kept me busy some of this month.  I can almost see the faces of kids in need when they get these with a cloth doll and tote bag.  I really enjoy doing this.

Sewing and Bowling

Here is what I did with the extra blocks from my Charming Star Quilt.  I made a throw out of it.  I just tied it with a fuzzy blanket on the back, nothing inside.  I brought the blanket around to the front and zig-zagged it in place.  

This is where it will hang for now.

I made this for a friend.  She said since she moved she could only find 1 needle. I am sure this will help her find more now because I put an assortment in it for her.  I had done the stitchery a long time ago.  I added a button to cover where the rick-rack comes together.

We bowled again tonight.  I did okay on the regular bowling but nothing special but on 100 pin I did very well.  5 strikes, a spare and then 6 strikes for a new high score.  That is 200 pins over my last new high score.  Sorry the picture is blurry but my camera does not like taking pictures of the TV.

Wii Bowling Last Night

We bowl on the Wii most every night.  Hubby usually beats me but on the 100 pin game I am in the lead.  Last night I got a new high score so I need to brag a little.  This 100 pin game is on the resort side of our game.  Sorry for the blurry pictures. This is the way the pins are laid out.  It is a long way down the lane to them.  Click on the picture for a better view.

My new high score.

This shows that it is for real.

Playing with Next Quilt

Here is the start of my next quilt from the sew along with Terry. I decided on just 2 fabrics and not scrappy. I also went with a 3 inch finished block rather than 2 inch. Terry made the change in my design by putting the blue block in the center of the snowball. I am loving it.  It will be a lap size quilt this time.
