There was much sewing to be had as well. Once the hubby and I rearranged rooms in our house to welcome Jade in Feb. there was a new sense of order to our home and my inner being. Jade has her own room freshened up. Empty, but soon there will be new paint on the walls and her gifted crib to use by a very sweet friend will be assembled. Pictures of embroidery work done by me will be added in and quite possibly a banner displaying her name. Feels really good.
I tackled a new baby quilt for someone. I had the fabric all cut into 5" squares for awhile and up on my design wall. I pieced it all one morning during this past week. The extremely- sweet as candy embroidered bunny,kitty and teddy bear are courtesy of Nana Company. If you have not seen her blog, please do take the time to venture over and stay for awhile. Her pics are Godiva chocolate to the soul without the calories;) I managed to stitch the animals all day yesterday off and on in a carefree manner.
same tutorial in some Star Wars fabric purchased from a gal on Etsy. A bit longer and here's to hoping they hang on for the ride with my bean stalk boy! Christmas PJ's are on the agenda.
Diary of a Quilter Amy Smart had a simple tutorial for a nursing cover. Need one of those! I had a black and white funky buttons print I bought from Joann's on a whim about 3 years ago. Perfect for this item.
Some 1/2 off sale price jersey knit....so very soft and off I went creating my new scarf.
I have been to that store way too much lately. Since then I have worn my new scarf two times and I want to make more. Added to the growing list;)
Well now it is time to go and I will see ya'll soon!
