12 Days of Christmas - Day 5 December 29th 2017

Welcome to Day 5 of our 12 Days Of Christmas celebration! Today we are giving away a 5 piece doll and bedding collection of items to 1 lucky winner! The bedding featured in today's giveaway was hand made by Elizabeth, the designer behind the Ladybug Doll Quilts brand as a prototype set for her Patch Play quilt pattern. The darling little pajamas are from Shari, the designer behind the Thimbles and Acorns brand, as the prototype cover piece for the 14.5" Union Suit pattern - too cute! We've completed this set with a brand new 14.5" Welliewishers Emerson doll!

Do you use a basic standard machine or one with all the bells and whistles? What about a serger, are you using one of those? (or wondering what in the world I’m talking about!)

I use a Brother XL-3750. I like it because it’s simple to use, was not terribly expensive, and does everything I need it to do. It’s a pretty basic machine, but it does have some fancy stitches, just not a ton of them. But I never use them so that wasn’t what I was looking for in a machine. I needed to replace one that had died on me, and I didn’t want to pay a lot. This one was a good price, and does everything I need it to do. It’s great.
