She loves "Dora" and all things "Dora" and wanted her birthday cake to have "Dora" on it. Her Mommy loves to decorate cakes and did a great job fulfilling her request. Little Princess saw her cake and was thrilled to see Dora there.
I've been forcing myself to keep busy when I'd much rather just wander or sit in a fog. Perhaps it's a good thing there are so many birthdays this time of year since it forces me to get gifts done. I made these quilts for the Little Princess and her sister, as well as matching curtains to give their room a face lift. Their Mommy had requested it months ago and it took me this long to get my act together and finish the quilts. The curtains and quilt tops have been done for some time. I like the quilts but wish I had quilted them differently. Or more quilting. I don't like the effect of the quilt after the quilting. I love the pattern however, and will be using it again. It was fun to do and fairly simple (minus the applique!).
