Now I am quite greedy. And I like cake. And I like baking. So what better than early birthday cake. Then I can get some too? So cake happened.
And, when you are having birthdays as a 'grown up' - no, I plan not to grow up, not if I can avoid it- less fuss is made than when you are a littley. So I thought a small amount of fuss was in order. And I know she likes tangeriney colours, and a bit of soft turquoise blue goes well, so I thought a couple of fat quarters would find a kind home. But, that is too easy. I needed to put a little bit of me into it as well. So I had some bits and bobs, and a little star was born. Backing and very light quilting followed, with cheats binding,
If I had been braver, I might have put gold in the bobbin, but I didn't think of it, and wouldn't be that brave anyway!
And, I confess, I like making dolly clothes. And I knew there was a little girl somewhere around, So the same pattern as my DD2 used, and a little outfit came together.
All sewing done Sunday evening, as I wouldn't have time later, with work! So imagine my surprise, come Monday, when I saw what Cindy had been doing. Coincidences happen. It is a fun block to do though.
I like the instant gratification of little things like these.
