Saturday Round up

I have a Blue Ribbon Baby!

See that Blue Ribbon laying over my baby boy ..... it is ours .. as in Jaxson's and mine!
and see that yellow star on it? That means he scored between 96 - 100 out of a possible 100 points.

Now the hard bit, do I sell him or keep him.
Might keep him for a little bit and see :)

There were also some quilts on display and a viewers choice cushion competition

See No. 7 at the top, purple and black was pieced to perfection.

Peaking my interest was the "In My Garden"
I couldn't get any closer for a real close up but it was a mix of needle turn and blanket stitch applique.
It might be what I have to do with mine when I get around to picking it up again :)

I am also fond of Teddy Bears and these were a few of my favourites

These this collection of dolls are a true credit to their makers

Now, as a Reborn Artist it is not very often that I see a Reborn Doll that I just have to have.
Normally I will just like the sculpt and make it myself but this little one is one of the very few exceptions

I just wanted to pick her up and bring her home
but sadly she was not for sale.
She looks so much better in real life.

As for sewing on this Saturday, I played with
Granny Squares

I am now turning these four into a Blanket of love

Enjoy your day,
hugs, Sharon
