Some pics of my doll quilt collection: i'm always astonished to see the result of just a few scraps and a little imagination. Less than a few hours is enough to make something lovely. I have no feeling for wall hangings, it's either a bedquilt or a doll bed quilt that attracts me.
The wallnut cradle was made by a DH childhood friend, Blagoja Djaikovic from Skopje, Macedonia. I brought him a photocopie from an antic cradle, and he knew exactly what i wanted.
Concerning my finger: no news! The doctor said that surgery might cause damage, and he hopes the needle will come out by itself! A new x-ray next week...........
I worked the last days with tangles: sooooooooo boring! But how quick and accurate! I made some homemade yelly rolls not long ago, and i used them to make the 2 triangle squares
Bright and sunny in Paris, but a new storm should be at hand.............Happy quilting my new friends, and let me tell you once more how much i appreciate you passing by and your comments!

I didn't realise a bit of the needle had been left in! Ouch. Have you tried soaking the finger in warm water and then gently squeezing?

Beautiful doll quilts. They are very "Gwenish".

I missed something. You've got part of a sewing machine needle stuck in your finger? Owwww ow ow. Which one? How are you still able to get any handwork done? Cute doll quilts!
