Sewed the pink circle on first:
Then the brown followed by the yellow:
Then I pinned on the red:
and sewed it on:
Next the white:
Next I cut the blue ribbon:

And here's what we ended up with - meet Anastasia!
I know she doesn't have a face yet. I'm still trying to figure out how I'll do it. I'm tempted just to use coloured pencils to draw on some eyes and a mouth. Ooooh, or I could use some more of the fancy stitches on my sewing machine. Food for thought!
To finish, when I look at photos on the web of other people's sewing rooms I always think things like "I'm so jealous - I would love a sewing room like that". Well, Jo took this photo of my sewing room - I want one like that!! :oD
