I finished Q’s birthday doll over the weekend, but am waiting to give it to her until her party on Saturday. Simone was a HUGE help with the hair (thanks Simone!) and I took a cue from Orangeflower and put in an elastic waist for the skirt. I could not figure out Alicia‘s instructions on that at all. Ha! Oh well! I think she still came out pretty cute even if her head is more than a little smooshed.

Check out craftevolution for my short, but sweet Sew Darn Cute book review. Strawberry is looking good!
This months book for craftevolution’s book club is Sew Darn Cute by Jenny Ryan. How it Works Every 4-6 weeks we “discuss” a craft book as follows: * Make one project out of the book that is due for the next book club meet-up * Explain why you chose that project * Discuss the clarity of the instructions, the layout of the book, the illustrations, other projects in the book, and whether you liked the book or not * Suggest one book for the next book club You can submit your discussion either as a comment the day of the book club meet-up or by email (mycraftevolution(at)gmail(dot)com). If you have pictures of your projects that you would like to share, email them to me or submit them to the Crafty Daisies Book Club Flickr group
