Dolls quilt and post No. 100.

This is a miniature quilt/dolls quilt that my Mum recently gave to Ellie Mae.  She has crazy pieced it from floral scraps, lace, ribbon, material left over from my wedding dress and has hand stitched lots of pretty details on top.

We might be hanging it on the wall for now.  The old doll was also my Mums.  I used to play with her too.  Ellie Mae can have it when she is a bit older.  Ellie was fascinated with it when I brought her out of the cupboard today for the first time.

Yay too.  Post number 100.  

I was telling my husband about my 100th post giveaway.  He wants to choose the winner via "Cow Lotto".  I will see if we get time, it could be a laugh.

For those that don't know Cow Lotto involves a cow being let loose in a paddock.  The paddock is divided into a grid and each square on the grid gets a number.  You then wait for the cow to choose a square (when nature calls).  I'm thinking this could be a very time consuming method of selecting my winners.   Do you think I'll be able to get a pink ribbon on the cow?

Don't forget to enter my giveaway on the Thinking Pink post before Wednesday night.  There are two prizes now.
