Here's a sneak peak at a little something on it's way to a special Junebaby coming soon! I'll post the whole picture in a couple days after it has arrived.

A Gift for Allison Marie

Hello. I hope everyone had a WONDERFUL Mother's Day! Mine was terrific. My little Tater was dedicated (somewhat similar to being baptized) and afterwards, we hosted a family cookout. I couldn't have asked for a better day.
These gifts were taken to the post office today. They are for a beautiful 4-week-old baby girl, Allison Marie. Hopefully they arrive tomorrow. The "lovey bunny" is a design I came up with before Easter and I have producing them like rabbits ever since. (The matching receiving blanket is an added bonus.) The crocheted blanket is one of my favorites lately. The pattern is in the Big Book of Scrap Crochet Afghans. It works up so quickly. I hope Mommy and baby Allison are thrilled with them!

Dreamy Dino Drop Off

Well I have finally finished all my dinos. They are made from an old pattern, Butterick 6870, that I found on ebay. The green and pink dinos are a commissioned order for a set of twin girls turning 3 on Friday. The green and blue dinos were given by my Mother-In-Law to a fellow teacher who is expecting twin boys in August. They are made of fleece and have matching flannel blankets, receiving blankets for the babies measuring about 36" x 36" and nap blankets for the girls about 36" x 48". I am so pleased with how they all turned out. What lucky twins!

Brand Spanking New

Hi everyone, anyone, who ever is reading this. I am brand spanking new to the world of blogging. After browsing though tons of blogs the past couple of months, I've decided I can do this. I would say I'm a jack-of-all-crafts...sewing, scrapbooking, crocheting. I have been sucked in by the doll quilt craze going on, so I'll share my latest work in progress. It's somewhat small, 18" x 18". I hoping to make another one with the blue/green stripes in the center and the red/orange/brown on the edges like a frame. When finished, they will hang one on each side of my dining room window. I think it's going to be charming!
Well it has taken me all day to write this. My little one is finally asleep, so off I go to sew! Have a good night!
