New Look! and more!

Well, I as mentioned in my previous post I have joined a blog hop. After joining I thought that this would be a great time to give my blog makeover! What do you all think?? I would love to hear your thoughts!!

Yesterday, my daughter and I made her a new nightgown (with the fabric used, it could be a nice simple dress as well). I had looked all over for one and never had any luck so we created one. She had fun helping and it was a quick project, from start to finish it took 2 hours :)

Here she is modeling her outfit!
Little miss, she is so sweet and proud of herself
I love this on her and the fabric is so soft BUT the color bleeds, so my next question to all of you is what do you do to set the color in the fabric. I would really not like everything to be blue. (I also have this fabric in pink and yellow for more of these for my nieces and I am sure their moms would not like me too much if all their laundry changed colors!)

So, I have been working on some projects, I will give a sneak peak but will have to elaborate later!

it will be scrappy, but this one was a practice run!

It has been a busy productive weekend and the last thing that was completed was my husbands website. What do you all think??

Hope you all have a GREAT day!

Your daughter is an absolutely cutie! Her nightgown looks adorable on her. And your new quilt blocks look so sweet and fresh - I love the fabrics.
