Pretty in Pink

An acquaintance from church asked if I'd do a slipcover for a chair in her daughter's room. This daughter's room is all about pink and uses several of the Nicey Jane fabrics throughout. Mom was quite pleased with the end result and I, although not a fan of pink, like it as well. Perhaps my girls' might find a similar one in their room some day.

Project Pillow Swap

My partner for the Pillow Swap should be receiving her pillow sometime this week and so I thought I'd take time to share what I did for her. I was inspired by this pillow and wanted to try doing one. The flowers were what intrigued me the most and the actual process was neat. I learned alot as I did them and look forward to trying out what I learned on a few more similar pillows for my girls' beds.

Onesis Dress

So quick and easy. Cute too.

Back From An Adventure

It's been awhile hasn't it. My family and I went off for a little Southern California Adventure with a little side trip to my cousins wedding. We had loads of fun but are glad to be back home again. Remember that little sneak peak from the previous post? This would be what that was all about:

A pillow in my aunt's favorite color scheme: blue and white. Just a little thank you gift for letting us stay at their place on our way to and from our little holiday.

Prior to leaving for our trip it was a wurl wind of activity around here getting things completed that needed to be done prior to our departure along with all the packing that comes with taking a trip. Among the things on the list of things to do was a bit of sewing. A blessing gown for a freind, flower girl dresses for my girls (they were part of the wedding party), and the wedding gift. I was not totally happy with how the table topper for the bride and groom turned out but the bride seemed quite happy with it so that is good. The focus fabric just did not work out as well for this design as I thought it would.
