Small Finishes

This week has been super busy which has not allowed for much sewing but I did get two small finishes.
This little dolls quilt came about because of the bonus dolls quilt I made a couple of weeks back. When I made that one I decided that I would add it to my friends daughter 3 birthday present. She also has a twine brother and I was trying to keep they present somewhat similar, a couple of people indicated that their sons also played with dolls quilts so I decided to make him one too.  I use some square I already had cut and tried to pick out boyish ones. I hope he likes it, will find out in a couple of weeks.
For the other little quilt, I stitched the bear when I was on vacation last year. My mum does a lot of handwork so I was looking for some to do while I was there. Found a bear quilt pattern and borrowed one of the bears from it, that I grab the background from her stash and borrow some of her floss. This was the first stitchery I did as a stem stitch and found it a lot quicker than doing back stitch.  Its a bit of a mix of both stitches as I would find myself switching without realizing it.  Once back form the visit I found the boarder fabric in my stash and was very pleased with how it matched the colours I had chosen for the bear.
