DeeDee Done

A recent rearrangement of the crafty things unearthed a number of incomplete projects - and as I came across each one the words I started this early last year kept coming out of my mouth. It seems that the beginning of 2009 saw me suffering a severe case of Startitis, I know it had something to do with the lack of a day job and thinking I had all the time in the world to complete the myriad projects which I began.

The good thing about the beginning of 2010 is that I have actually been completing some project whether they are newly started or older ones which I have picked up again. See previous post re House quilt.

Today while I was waiting for miss nudie to choose the colour for her clothes I got distracted by this project which has been on my 'want to do list' since December when I saw other creative bloggers making them for gifts. Fortunately for me Dee Dee made a quick decision about colour and fabric choices so we were underway early and did not give up until she was done.

Oh, yeah she is hanging out on the back of The Happy City quilt, I was going to take her to the beach for a photo shoot but my camera decided today was a good day to run out of battery, (must put those on the shopping list). This is a truly delightful design from the team at Melly and Me and was published in Australian Homespun in December of 2009, she is now available as a pattern.

And when the camera is doing go again I'll be able to show you the goodies I got at GJ's Sale yesterday - lots of fun.

Hope your Sunday was full of fun creations. Happy Stitching

Dee Dee sure does look like a dolpin out for a spot of fun. Love the fabrics she choose to wear. Well done on starting and finishing on the same day. Now if only Miss Nudie can get her act together and decide on her wardrobe.

Well done! I would still be basking in the glory of the happy houses quilt if it was me lol. I just love it.
Went to Gj's yesterday to find it shut on sundays-we were convinced that we had been on a sunday before-can't wait to see your finds.
