Happy Monday to you!
Just popping in to let know that I have added a few pairs of baby shoes to the shop.

baby dolls

Some dolls are in the shop!

 And each doll comes with a little patchwork doll quilt!

A wonderful gift for little girls. 
A great bedtime doll as they are soft and nice to cuddle with.
 My daughters love theirs!

apple blossoms

Nothing new to show...the sewing machine still sits quietly.
We are too busy enjoying Mom/Gramma.  She came at the end of last week and is here for a week!
Also loving this warm weather here today and the apple blossoms in our front yard.

little aprons

I haven't been doing much sewing here the past few days.
Instead I have been spring cleaning.
Reading Organized Simplicity got me into the clean and declutter mode so the sewing machine sits neglected. How sad!
I do have some aprons to show though.
I made these before the cleaning bug hit and they are now in the shop.

summer nighties

I made the girls some summer nighties.
They are so excited about them!
I used knit fabric, which I haven't worked with very much, but used
my walking foot and everything went smoothly!
The pattern is Butterick 4910.

They are a little big on the girls but I'm fine with that - it just means they will fit them longer! 

Have a great weekend!

girls' bedroom

Just thought I'd do a quick post to show you the girls' room since I've mentioned on here that we were 
redoing it.  Aside from finding more decor and a bit of trim work, it is complete!  My husband did a wonderful job with the renovations and I had fun making the quilt, monkey, bunnies, pillow...

Here are some before shots:

And the after:  (sorry about all the pictures but I was having fun snapping photos of the new room!)

 I bought her 2012 calendar and the pictures in it were a perfect fit for these frames I had on hand!

I am absolutely loving this roll-out toy box my hubby built for this oddly-shaped corner.
It keeps the dolls/blankets/purses tucked away when not being played with!
He also put a chalk board on the front of it...he's so clever!  :)

So that's the room.  The girls have been enjoying it and I still love peeking in at it when I walk by!  :)

more quick change trousers

Remember this stack of fabric.
Well, it became a couple pairs of quick change trousers.
These ones are on their way to some twin nephews!
