My sister has little kids. I take full advantage of this and love to make things that my kids are too “big” for. She was smart to have kids 2nd, if only for this reason *wink*.
My sister has wanted to name a baby Ruby since she was in high school. Her first two kids were boys, then her 3rd came along after a long and difficult pregnancy, a girl. Ruby was finally here.
Ruby has lived up to her name, she’s an adorable little red haired girl.
For Christmas this year I made her a little doll and matching quilt. I got the idea for the quilt from the Pretty in Patchwork, Doll Quilts Book.
I raided my stash and pulled out every fabric I had with a red haired girl on it.
Most ended up being Heather Ross prints.
I made my first dresden block (which came out much bigger than I thought it would, I need to read up a bit more on dresdens).
I also made dolls for her boys- more on that next time :)
