Special Delivery


During the Gwen & Freddy retreat I was sitting next to a remarkable artist, Marion.  Her blog is well worth looking at.  She makes these amazing art dolls with your own scraps.  Lots (maybe all?) of the ladies at my table bought a small or large doll.  I didn't get my order in fast enough to get it at the retreat, but I did place an order that just came today.  What a treasure!


From the bottom to the top, I love all the details.


On the left, you can just see that she's carrying a basket.  These fabrics are all from the quilt that I worked on at the retreat.  All of this was scraps that I was throwing away!  Marion added in beads, wire art and the button face.  It's all placed on an antique bobbin.


What a great keepsake from a fabulous retreat.  She will have a place of honor in my sewing room.  More photos of Marion's dolls and fabric flowers here and check out her completed retreat quilt top here.  Fun, fun fun!
