For Sailor Anne

I have been busy sewing for my upcoming grand babies. There was a baby shower, so I got busy and made a banner for my daughter's
baby's room. It is made of a double layer of cardstock, patterned paper, ribbon, and letters I cut from the cricut and painted gold. Then I stamped a scroll on each flag, then sewed around it for stability. Tied them all together with gold edged ribbon.

I made this dress, bonnet and bloomers. English smocking is something I have not done much of, so it is not perfect. I had forgotten how tedious making newborn clothes can be, but very much fun, when it for a sweet granddaughter.
This very very soft blanket made of soft flannel and a velvety fleece. Then some burp clothes. You can never have enough of those. I will be posting the things I made for my other daughter who is having a boy in a later post.

Oh, how beautiful that little baby dress is! I did some smocking for my 1st daughter so many, many years ago! Yours is lovely!
Thank you for stopping by my blog and for taking the time to say hello!
We have the same dishes? You mean the red transferware ones? I bought them from Through The Country Door catalog. You too? :-)
You mentioned a swap! What did you have in mind? I'd love to play!
Blessings,
Diane
