How does anyone need a quilt when it’s that warm?

Standard

Well, I can’t answer that question because I live in Colorado.  Usually once or twice during a (mountain) CO summer it stays nearly 75 inside at night and for me, it’s way too hot to sleep under a quilt if that happens!  I checked a few Hawaiian weather forecasts though, and they were pretty much 75 for the low and 85 for the high all the time. How anyone needs extra warmth to sleep at that temperature is beyond me, but Hawaiian quilts are a beautiful and well-known art form, and you could always make them with very thin batting if needed for where your doll lives!

Wow!  So many people are in love with Nanea and LOTS of you bought the new collection of patterns, which makes me think, “People want more for Nanea!” 🙂  But if you went to the AG store (in Denver anyway) this weekend they were out of pretty much everything for Nanea except her PJs, fishing set, swimsuit and bed.  So, in case one of the things you wanted but couldn’t buy was her school dress, here you go:

Oh wow…scary encounter shortly after this pic was taken!  After packing up all our gear, we walked about 10 feet away from this spot where we encountered a RATTLESNAKE!  I shrieked and ran, DH stood where he was and pulled the camera back out.  I’m nice enough to spare you those pix though 🙂
