BASKETS ~N~ BIRDS UPDATE PREVIEW

FIRST UP IS MISS ZOE MODELING A RED DOLL
BONNET. LOOKS BRIGHTER RED THAN IT IS.
ISN'T SHE CUTE? SHE WASN'T IMPRESSED WITH
MY MODEL IDEA!

THE 1836 PUNCH NEEDLE CUPBOARD HANGER
IS FINISHED.

TWO SMALL HOOKED RUGS. BOTH ARE
INSPIRED BY EARLIER MARIA BARTON
RUGS WITH HER PERMISSION.

BLACK WING AND TAIL BIRD. ONE
OF MY ORIGINAL DESIGNS.

ANTIQUE DOLL DRESS. I'VE GONE BACK
AND FORTH ON THIS LITTLE DRESS. I
LOVE IT BUT JUST DON'T HAVE THIS ERA
OUT ANYMORE. DARLING LITTLE DOLL
DRESS IN PERFECT CONDITION WITH LITTLE
POCKETS ON THE FRONT, GATHERED SLEEVES
AT THE CUFF AND HAND STITCHED BUTTON HOLES
ON THE BACK.

IZZIE CUPBOARD TUCK.

LINEN BIRD PINKEEPS. I'VE AGED THEM UP AND
THEY LOOK SO GOOD IN PERSON. I "RAG"
STUFFED THE PINCUSHIONS. MY OWN DESIGN.

THE DOLLS I'VE NAMED PATIENCE ON THE LEFT
AND MERCY ON THE RIGHT. HAND DRAWN FACES
IN PENCIL WON OUT! BOTH RAG STUFFED WITH
DROOPY HEADS. BOTH ARE NEW DESIGNS BY ME.

ALSO ONE OF MY OWN DESIGNS. I MADE
THIS PEAR/BIRD PINKEEP IN 2007. I
DECIDED IT WAS TIME TO PASS IT
ALONG IF ANYONE IS INTERESTED. IT'S
ON A WOODEN BASE I'VE PAINTED BLACK.

YOU MAY REMEMBER THIS BASKET QUILT
I PIECED AND APPLIQUED SOME TIME AGO.
I WAS ABLE TO GET IT QUILTED IN TIME
FOR MY UPDATE.

THIS IS A FUN APPLIQUE QUILT I PUT
TOGETHER USING DESIGNS FROM DIFFERENT
BRANNOCK/PATEK QUILT BOOKS AND DID
MY OWN THING. IT'S HAND QUILTED AS IS
THE OTHER BASKET QUILT.

SORRY THE PICS AREN'T THE BEST.  IT'S BEEN
OVER CAST AND RAINY HERE FOR TWO DAYS AND
I DIDN'T HAVE THE BEST LIGHT.

I'LL BE HAVING MY UPDATE THIS WEDNESDAY MORNING,
JUNE 22nd AT 9 AM CENTRAL TIME
ON MY PICTURE TRAIL. THE FOR SALE
ALBUM WILL BE CLOSED UNTIL THAT TIME
SO I CAN LOAD THE PICTURES AND INFO.
PLEASE JOIN ME THEN. HAVE A GREAT DAY!
UNTIL NEXT TIME.....LORI
