Utterly Spoiled...such fun!

 I am the recipient of some birthday gifts, a little early!  My friend Lyn, from Australia, MADE this baby doll!  Isn't she cute?  She is a nurse, with a little nursing cap perched on her darling head!  It looks so professionally made...and so dear to me.  What a darling baby doll!!
 Lyn also made a Poodle quilt!!  It is made from the most darling poodle fabrics, and if you zoom in, you can see them.  Precious!
 And there is even more!  A whole box of such fun things...thank you, Lyn, thank you!

Please see her blog here:

 My friend Tricia sent some really fun patterns from magazines. Love them!! Especially the Prickly Pear is right up my alley.   Thank you so much, Tricia!  Please see her website here:

 I ordered a pattern for the Timeless Traditions pattern, Sweet and Simple.  It is a lovely applique quilt.  I received two books, though!!  So I will check and see what I was charged for, and return one if I did not get charged for it...such a fun pattern.
And this little block has an inner border, and of course, I am stuck on the outer border. Seems like a repeat of the border dilemma I usually have, LOL!!

Have a great day, everyone!!

What great gifts! I have a friend who makes Raggedy Anne dolls, and they take lots of time and work to make. Special gift. Enjoy all of them.

That doll IS precious. She is the cutest nurse doll ever made. Lyn has great talents. I was reading on and then stopped. What's a poodle quilt? I looked back at the picture and couldn't figure out what's a poodle quilt! Then I continued to read and literally laughed out loud. Too cute! Enjoy your birthday my dear and all the surprises and hugs that come with it. ♥ ;^)
