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.
I am a Mother of 8, grandmother of almost 27 wonderful little people. Married to a wonderful man for 38 years. I am a published scrapbooker, have decorated wedding cakes, made wedding dresses, had a wedding business, taught baton twirling lessons to girls for almost 40 years, and love to decorate my home inexpensively. I have always been a 'make-due' sort of person. I love dishes, teacups, teapots, and have to be creating something everyday. I love to listen to beautiful uplifting music and watch Masterpiece Theatre and Jane Austen movies while I scrap, craft or sew. I have become addicted to quilting, and dream about quilt blocks now. I am still working on getting better at this art form. I believe that Creating things with your hands is a good outlet and keeps your mind alert, and has a way of helping one lose all the cares of the day and world, right in my own little studio. Therefore I will never become a digital scrapbooker. I think that those who do digital turn out some beautiful pieces of art and lovely layouts, but for me I need to cut and paste by hand!
