I have been working on this Comfort Doll too, for the Comfort Doll Project. She has been sitting in my work basket for a while, and is now ready to do the backing. Except I don't think I have the right fabric here to do it.
She is going to be edged with beads, like my others, and I think will have a garland, possibly with a heart.
The sewing is a nice break over Christmas, and I will try and keep going once I am back at work - but Mum is taking a lot of my time, as well as work, so not a lot is getting done.
And I am enjoying my garden - I think I sew more in the winter at the moment.
