What I Have Been Making Today

This is the start of a pincushion for a swap at out Christmas Party using left over fabric from my dolls dresses.
The pin cushion is almost finished, the Trees are made in the same way as i had posted before but much simpler. They need to be sewn together down the middle, all 3 layers then stuffed and embellished, i will do that tomorrow. These are for our Christmas Party decorations at ACDA
These two miniatures when they are finished are going to be swap gifts. They need decorating.
I have enjoyed my break from the dolls today, Almost like a Holiday. I know the quality of the pictures are not so good because it is quite late, and day light is the best time to show pictures, but i needed a break and here they are.

New Room

This was our nephews room until Sunday when he moved out to his sisters place just down the road. We gave him all the furniture and things to give him a start and in its place we have bought a brand new bed and mattress and a bedside table That is all that is in there at the moment. As you can see it did not take long for my kitties to start exploring. I am going to put new bedding pillows and sheets and having never made a quilt, i would like advice.
I would like to make this room warm but neutral, not too feminine nor masculine, It is only a small room really it is described as study, any ideas? Can you post me any good places to start?
