Watermelon Dress

Miss A is three months old already.  We celebrated a few birthday's this past weekend and Miss A wore her new party dress.

I ordered this pattern from Mary Maxim.  Watermelon Dress No. 99171-2N, using Ultra Mellowspun DK wool, colour Peony.

 During a trip to a local fabric store, just recently, I found these cute daisy flower buttons.  I thought the pink ones worked best with this dress.  I should have looked closer at my pictures, the way the dress was sitting it looks like the back doesn't line up.

And here she is, my sweet little girl.  I tried to get her to show off her beautiful smile but she just wasn't in the mood.

Signing off till next time.

Material Things

Life has been kind of difficult these past couple of years, sudden deaths of parents and dementia.  We have been dealing with rough times so when our sweet Niece A was born she was the light in our darkness.

This past January we took a long over due trip with M-I-L to visit cousins in Owen Sound.  M-I-L and I got loose in a fabric store.  Niece A being my inspiration to get back into crafting, I bought fabric, I haven't sewn anything since I made clothes for my son 16 years ago.

Blankets are a great place to start.

Miss A wrapped up and keeping warm in a double sided fleece blanket.

Over sized receiving blanket made out of double sided flannel.  I remember one of my husband's aunts making me a few of these when my son was born.  They were my favourite and feel that every new mom should have one.

 My first attempt at quilting.

Signing off till next time.
