I just received this email this morning …. apparently Doris and Edward had a good journey on Qantas!

Hi Val,
Your gorgeous bears arrived today safe and sound! They really are so lovely!! Have a huge box load of softies heading out to the Lockyer Valley (one of the most devastated areas) and some heading off to Ipswich. Thanks so much for your support!
Wishing you a wonderful week.

  1. Wow, beautiful quilt! Love your softies, I said I was going to make one three weeks ago, I have had one failed attempt. Must try again!

  2. Doris and Edward are precious! It was good to hear from you, too- I had lost touch, but now you are in my Reader, and I intend to hang on.

    I agree with you about the quilt – it does remind one of sugared almonds.

  3. Your quilt top is lovely…those colors and patterns are so nice together. Bless your heart for sending off those sweet bears to bring comfort to children in such a time…

  4. Well I know I couldn’t resist her, the little sweetie!!!
    Beautiful quilt top! Do you know I’d love some sugared almonds now you’ve mentioned them! 🙂
    Must be lovely to know your little dolls will make someone smile!
    Have a lovely weekend Val!

  5. Hi Val,

    Just to let you know, I have a new keyring in the shop, but I am definitely making more. Feel free to take a look or I can make one to your own specification.
    Hope you are having a good weekend,

  6. My, you have been busy with your quilt tops! It is only just into February and it is done! Well done and your little fellows look great too, making someone smile.

  7. Dear Val and Bella! How nice to see you, no one could resist Bella’s sweet look! Your new quilt is beautiful – wonderful soft colours!
    Have a lovely week with lots of sunny walks! Teje and Nero

  8. Val, what a beautiful quilt… So soft and sweet! And your teddies are delightful and so full of love…
