One of our first projects was a bed for Grace. Not long after Grace arrived on Christmas Day, Sophie and I went shopping. Sophie saw a doll bed at TJ Maxx and I almost bought it, but I remembered something that had almost been forgotten. I had an antique doll cradle that I received from my grandparents when I was Sophie's age. This doll cradle had been my grandmother's doll bed when she was a little girl! When we got home I dug it out and Sophie's Dad and I started to work.

Meanwhile, I was selecting fabrics for bedding.
Here is my first quilt in progress...
