Meet Tessie - My new Quilting Buddy

Meet Tessie! She is my new quilting buddy! Isn't she adorable! She is an early birthday present for myself! I just had to have her when Nicole put her on sale and my birthday is later this month. I've been eyeing her forever now, and figured that must be a sign. When I got her she immediately just spoke to me and said - my name is Tess. So Tessie she is!

I also got 2 more "secret" blocks done. 3 more to go, and I got those all cut out tonight!

Might not be until next week when you see it all together, I've got a busy end of week/weekend coming up so this may be it until next week! Hope you all have a good weekend! Mine is sure to be fun.

Mom, your doll is cute! However, if she is talking to you maybe that is something you should have looked into. :P
