New Raggedy & Friends block

It took me longer than usual to finish the Raggedy & Friends BOM, but today Raggedy Ann posed again:



And here is my November block finished:


A detail of the stitchery:


The picture of Ann:


Thank you Kaaren for the pattern, I enjoyed it like every month!

Between my secret sewings I have also managed to finish the Building a Village table runner, a free pattern by Mrs. Moen:



The December light doesn't allow me to take very good pictures, but here you can see that I stitched doors to the houses and added a white binding to the long sides (and a starry one to the ends). Thank you, Nina Lise!

Today is our Independence Day and I need to wash my hair and put on a pretty dress so I can watch the annual dress parade on TV!

  2. So nice that Raggedy Ann can watch your progress on her quilt. I love the doors in the houses. Never thought of that. Mine are not yet put together - I have other things to get done.

  6. Great job, Ulla!

    You would think that I used your Annie doll as my sample when I did my initial sketches for the design. She's wonderful too!

  7. Love the starry night fabric you used with the houses. Your Raggedy block is so sweet. I'm sure Ann can't wait for you to finish this quilt. Will it her hers? Those are some fancy dresses!!!

  8. Ann seems to be staying warm and enjoying the winter in her cozy corner. Beautiful block, Ulla!
    The stars are sparkling bright over the village! It is a cute runner :)

  9. Happy Independance Day!
    I hope Raggedy Anne isn't giggling at the Anne on your quilt? She's giggling about something, and that's for sure, was it having to pose?
    I love your stitchery panels, they are so pretty. I've wanted to make a quilt with stitched redwork, or embroidered panels, for ages, but somehow its one of those things which never gets started.
