What I've been up to....

I have had several sewing projects lately, but they are all sets that are already on my website, so I didn't post pics of them here. I have also been busy taking pictures of a couple of sweet newborns!! Remember those shower gifts I made earlier? Here are the recipients in some photos I took. A friend from church made the hat and blanket.

And the next little sweetie....

I am so glad they both came into this world safely. Both have such beautiful complexions and heads full of dark hair! What a blessing!
I am still working on my sewing room renovation....I'll post final pics soon. In the mean time, here is another sneak peek! :o)
Now all you fabric folding experts, please do not critique me too harshly :o) I just wanted to get it stashed away! Perhaps one day I'll make some fancy little fabric holders for all it and file it away more neatly. I can't wait to show the rest of the sewing room.........I am still in the process of stashing things! lol
Have a great week!

Vintage Sailor Set!

This was a custom designed set for a very special birthday girl. She is having a New England style lobster boil for her party (lucky girl!) and needed a little lobster themed ensemble to wear. So I designed this little sailor dress and made up a smocking plate to match the sea creatures in the fabric......including a lobster, of course!
Here are the little smocked sea creatures..

A little sailor tam with embroidered lobsters completes the look.
I hope she has a fabulous birthday!!!
