Baby Girl!

My brother-in-law and his wife just found out that they're having a baby girl!!  My first niece!!  Let the Baby Girl Projects begin!!  I'm almost done knitting the Three-Rib Beret out of the newest issue of Piecework - Absolutely Adorable.  I'll hopefully have a photo up tomorrow of that.  And I have my eye on this pattern for her.  And when she's older I want to make her the dress that I saw in this post over on JCasa.

In other crafting projects the garland in this photo caught my eye the other day.  Isn't that great?  Now I defenitely need to learn how to crochet so I can make one of those. 

And, mom finished the first three aprons for the Apron-of-the-Month club!  Aren't they cute?  All were made from our collection of vintage apron patterns.

Soft Spot

Mom, Hannah and I all have a soft spot in our hearts for all of the little unfinished embroidery pieces that seem to gravitate their way into our shop.  How can you not?  All that hard work into a piece that has sat in a drawer or a basket for years because it was never finished.  It seems nowadays that the beautiful, finished pieces barely get brought out let alone the unfinished pieces!  So, here's some embroidery love for your day:

Sweet Dreams

Home Ec this month has been all about being comfy cozy. Hannah and the girls have made lavender filled sleeping masks and monogrammed laundry bags so far. Pillowcases are next week and finally pajama bottoms the week after that. I'm so glad that these Home Ec classes are starting to pick up - Hannah and I enjoy planning them SO much!
