New Year - new starts

All visitors have gone and beds are changed and washing started BUT still time to escape to my sewing room to get some sewing done.  I finished off a little bag and crochet doll which I will be giving to a friend for her little grand- daughter who is 4 next week.

Inside the bag I have hidden the Granny square blanket which I think she will enjoy snuggling up in when she visits her Granny.

I also put together some animal blocks I embroidered before Xmas into a small quilt which again I will give to someone when finished.  The dark strips are purple not black ! 
Just need to get it quilted at quilt group on Saturday. 

Can't wait for my fabric paint thinner to arrive so that I can get on with painting my Cala lily. 
Looking forward to some great sew -alongs over the coming months.
