WOYWW

 Just a few cheery little faces to greet you today!!
I spent fun day Monday making this little bag ready to pop my next quilt in for Jo's LillyBo Quilt scheme. It really has taken off and Jo has received lots of beautiful quilts, many of which are now being used and loved by the children in hospital in Liverpool.
(Follow this link for more info. . . . LillyBo Quilts)
 
So on my desk today is the quilt - only partly made - I forgot to collect the wadding from Annie on Monday so it will have to wait until I pop down to hers again.
I liked the little dolly collages so I am putting one in each corner, to go with the one on the bag.
Then I found that I had three little dancing dollies left from the ones I made earlier so I will pop those in the pocket. Some poorly little one will have fun with them, I am sure.
 
Well, that's me for today.
I hope you are all well and making the most of the bright Summer days.
Thanks for calling by and if linking up with more crafters sounds like fun then pop over to Julia's Stamping Ground and join in!
 
x Jo

Oh these dollies are wonderful! They are going to be so loved! I think your quilts are just the best idea. If I had yours and Annie's talent I would love to join in, but sadly quilting is not something I've ever done. I do love looking and admiring, though. Keep up the good work! Julie Ann #12

First, you gals dressed all the children in Africa, now you're covering all the little ones in the Liverpool hospital. You gals are the BEST.

I have a sewing machine, but I don't really sew, unless you call sewing paper sewing. And I don't measure, and don't cut (just tear fabric), so I would make a HORRIBLE quilt. If I had your skills, I would help out, though.

Happy WOYWW from #2.

What a wonderful cause you are supporting with these darling quilts and I love how you have made the bags to match. The little dolly collages and dolls are just adorable and I am sure they will have each child who receives them beaming from ear to ear. Have a great week and Happy WOYWW! Danie #25

Happy Crafting!

Your quilts just get prettier and prettier. A bit like your view from the kitchen window . I can see why the bird sat for a few minutes admiring the view.
