Baby Shower Fun

Have you ever had one of those days when you just wanted to kick yourself?  Well I had one of those last weekend!  I had made a darling Tennessee Vol set encluding a  dress made of Tennesse Vol fabric, an orange and white Korker ribbon elastic headband, and a Tennessee Vols plush blanket for my grand-daughter's baby shower and forgot to take a picture of it before I wrapped it.  I was so angry with myself, but I decided I could just take a picture when she opened it.  Well, what is the saying about best laid plans?  I didn't want to just take a photo of my gift so I was busy taking all kinds of photos and before she was able to open my gift my camera's battery died.  So..there you have it, really wanted to kick myself in the butt!

The shower was awesome tho and I did get some great photos.  She received so many beautiful and useful things and she and her husband, plus the two grands and the one Great,  were very happy and excited.

Tina, my stepdaughter and Mom of the Mom to be, made the cutest baby in a bassinet   It was all fruit!  The bassinet was made of a watermelon and cantaloupe, grapes and other melon made up the baby and blanket.  I had never seen one and it was so cute!

Isn't that just the cutest little thing ever?

The cake was pretty awesome too.  Sheila's theme was giraffes and her cake went right along with the theme.  I must say that I am glad a few others ate some before I did as it let me see that I need to avoid the black frosting!

One of sheila's friends gave her the cutest tower made of all kinds of goodies; onesies, diapers, clothes and decorated with the necessities like baby shampoo, baby wash, baby toys, and stuffed animals.

All in all it was a very happy, exciting and awesome time, even if I did not get a photo of the Tennessee Vol set I made.  I did get a couple of pictures of the wrapped gift tho, and I do have a picture of the set I made for her the weekend before.

Here is a photo of the happy Mom to be and the two Grands to be.



I have been working on some burp cloths using colorful cotton on one side and  waterproof PUL on the other. They are a very convenient size, are very bright and cheerful, and offer a load of protection from mishaps while burping or holding baby.  These listings is for a set of 2 burp cloths.

Check them out, they are new today on my ETSY.

Monday Quiz About Me 8-13-2012

Hello and it is once again time for Monday Quiz About Me! Yep it is all about me, well and you too!  Heather at Acting Balanced has this great MeMe every Monday.  She list 4 questions everyone that is participating answers and then we each add our own question for number 5.  It is loads of fun and if you would like to join us, just click the link above and sign up!

Here are this weeks questions:

1. How was your weekend?

2. What is your favorite kind of candy?

3. If I say the word 'high' what do you think?

4. What are you most looking forward to about Autumn?
And my question for number 
5.  Do you use a laptop or a desktop computer?

And my answers:

1.  My weekend was wonderful just way too short, but it always is!  I did get a lot of sewing finished and had some fantastic news.  (More on that at a later date).

2.  Well I used to love the candy bar Mr. Goodbar until I bought one several years ago at a small market.  As I was eating it I thought I saw a peanut move only to realize it was a maggot. UGH!   After throwing up for about one solid hour I was able to get over it, but I have never eaten another one and most likely never will!  I no longer have a favorite candy.  :(

3.  If I say or hear the word high I immediately think of dizzy.  I have such a huge fear of heights that just thinking about it makes me sick to my stomach! 

4.  The thing I am looking forward to about Autumn is Tennessee Football!  I love the Vols and am hoping for a wonderful season!  We certainly could use one, but I will be watching and cheering them on regardless!

5.  I used a desktop for many years, about four years ago I bought my first laptop and I will never go back to using a desktop again, well I hope to never go back to using a desktop again!  I love my laptop!

Hope you all have a fantastic Monday!

Happy Sewing!

All Things Baby..Great Grand That Is!

I have had a really busy weekend. I have not had much time to sew for my Etsy because I have a more personal reason for sewing this weekend.

As most of you know I had a sweet little Grand born in June, but the little bundle of joy I am sewing for this weekend will be here in late September and she will be my first Great Grand!  I know I can't believe I will be a Great Grandmother either, but I am very excited and can hardly wait to meet Little Miss Mackenzie. Her shower is August 19th, so I have been getting a few things ready.  I have a few more things to make and hope to finish up this coming week.

This little dress is all about traveling turtles!  It is completely lined and ties on the shoulders.  It is a newborn size, fits up to 13 pounds.  Sure hope Miss Mackenzie is not too big!

I made this sweet little elastic headband to match.  It has a satin rose that matches some of the turtles on the dress and the super soft, super wide elastic should be extra easy on Mackenzie's sweet little head.  I covered the sewn seam on the elastic with soft felt to make it even more comfy.

This blanket is  reversible and has pink minky dot fabric on one side and sage green super soft minky fabric on the other.   It is trimmed with pink satin binding.  It is super soft and cuddly and the green matches some of the turtles on the dress.(trying to keep a color theme going here)

Sure hope Mackenzie loves her gifts, I have a couple of more things to make and I will be ready to attend the shower and celebrate the coming of this precious little angel.


My Etsy has had quite a few views, but I need more...lots more!

Here are a few new items on my shop this week, I am working on adding something new every day.

White Eyelet dress with pink lining.
Kindle Fire Cover
Vintage Tapestry Fabric
Baby's Korker Elastic Headband

Just a little update on my Grand born in June.   Harper is just growing up a storm!    What a little beauty she is.  She was 7lb 14 0z when born( June 11) and now at just 8 weeks (as of last Tuesday 8-7-12) is 13lb 9oz!  She is smiling all the time and beginning to coo.  I just love her to pieces!

Happy Sewing!
