My New Nephew!!

Well I received an early morning phone call letting me know that baby was born!!

He made his entrance into the world at 615am, weighing 5 pounds, and measuring 16 inches long. He is so so tiny and the sweetest little bundle of joy!!

Patiently waiting.....

Last week I was busy making a few things, and I managed to get everything done with time to spare. You see I am waiting for the announcement of the arrival of the newest family member. We know its a little boy and I am so excited to be an Auntie again!!!

This past weekend we held a baby shower for my sister in law, and I for this I made a couple of things. One was a blanket (which our family has named Budzy's) and I also made a diaper cake. Also, several people pitched in and we bought her a stroller/car seat combo, some sleepers, a monitor and diapers. The mommy to be was so happy and greatly appreciative of everything.

Today she has gone into the hospital for an induction, so now we wait....I hope my littlest nephew decides to arrive soon!

So, here is what I made :)

Picture of the diaper cake. I usually add more to these, but we opted for very simple as it was the table center piece :)

Hopefully soon I will be able to post some pictures of my new wee nephew on his budzy!!

Hope you all have a wonderful day!!

Tutu's are done!

Well I have completed the custom order for Tutu's. And I must say that I am very happy with the way that they all turned out! It was a change to have a large order like this. Usually I do one or two, but this ended up being for 11 Tutus! I was happy to get them all done with in a few days of confirming the order!

These are the wands that I made to go with the Tutu's

Here are all 11 of the Tutu's together

The lady who ordered these came and picked them up this morning and was very happy, and that made my day!

And to make my day better, I received a message from someone who would like to place an order for dance class! They would like to see a sample in person and then decide from there! How exciting!!

I have also begun the new baby blanket, which I am hoping to have completed tomorrow!

It really is a great feeling to be back to sewing and my crafting

Been a long time.....

Wow has it been awhile since I have made an entry in my blog!! Not doing so well with keeping up in daily posts for the last month. There has been so much going on, and my kids have really needed my undivided attention. As a result, blogging was put on the back burning for awhile. I am hoping that things have settled down and things will return to normal!

I am currently working on a birthday party order for 11 Tutu's, making a baby blanket for the arrival of my newest little nephew (end of Feb), and designing some quilts while I await the arrival of some fabric!

Well, I am hoping to be in touch with everyone much more, but hope that you all understand that my wee munchkins need to be my number one priority!
