Double Pleasure

Here's my Raggedy Annie, just like Wendy's, that I special ordered from Nicole @ Raggedy Old Annies. I decided that Wendy needed an Annie for her birthday and after some discussion with Nicole I decided that Twin Raggedy Annies would be fun. :-) The only difference in our Annies - Wendy's has a W on her dress and mine has a D on hers. In December I ordered a Christmas Annie but when I put my decorations away I put her in the bin, too. Judy keeps telling me that I need to pull her out - she can't breathe in that bin. Hopefully, I'll do that soon and then remember to show you a picture because I didn't when she arrived.

I quilted one of the blue and brown quilts I made recently. I made two exactly alike - one for me and one to surprise a fellow blogger. Do you think she'll like it? Do you think she'll be surprised? Is it too plain? I wanted it to look a bit vintage so I did a close meandering so when it's washed it'll crinkle up and look yummy! I really hope she'll like it because I've been wanting to make something for her for many, many months. I'll just keep my fingers crossed - wish me luck!

Thanks for stopping by - I really enjoy sharing with you.

In Friendship!
