Civil War Bride Quilt - block 6 & special goodies

Here's my 6th block of the Civil War Bride Quilt. This one was straight forward and I'm getting better with the feet of the birds.

I spent a few hours at the Organic Market in Bryanston and picked up these...
All locally made and for some stalls we can speak to the makers at work...

These were made by African Woman's Self Help Community groups ...

And finally, my mom gave me this doll which she had when she was little in Portugal.
She reckons its at least 70 years old but I don't know much about these types of dolls apart from the fact she is very fragile and hasn't got any of her original clothes ?
Have you seen these types of dolls before  and are they collector's items ?

I'm hoping to spend a few hours sewing and if all goes well I'll blog something interesting soon.
