New Fabric, a Baby Gift and an Award

First off, the new fabric! Who wouldn't love to have these beauties in their possession?

I stopped at Quilt Essentials on my way home the other day. I LOVE that store! Of course I had three kids with me and limited funds so this is all I came home with.

I made a couple of recieving blankets for baby gifts. I only took photos of this one. We are having a baby boom in our church (this is not unusual!) The last 5 have been girls. I have some more gifts to get busy on too!

And a photo of the binding, because I like it! It's the perfect shade of pink.

Our blog was nominated by two others for the Lemonade Stand award. Thank you so much to Leslie and Heather! We aren't going to nominate anyone else this time but I'm going to mention a few blogs that I like to visit (besides the 2 ladies who nominated us.)

SewChic A mom and daughter who blog about their sewing projects.
Siestas and Sewing A mom of 4 who sews beautiful clothing for her kids.
Presser Foot Sisters who blog about their sewing adventures (hey that sounds familiar!)
Use the Loot She makes amazing stuff from thrifted vintage linens.

These are just a few of the blogs in my reader. Hope you all have a good week. I should be back in this space later this week with a Thrifty Threads post.


  1. Love the blanket and the snails from the new Moda! Cute!

  2. Darling blanket! You're right that pink is perfect! I love your daughters heart shirt in the post below too. That is so cool you MADE that! The print is adorable!

  3. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I've enjoyed looking through yours. I especially liked the children's clothes you have made. I stopped sewing clothes after I had three boys and all they wanted were t shirts and jeans. How boring is that?

  4. I love that binding too. Right now everyone I know is having boys (besides one friend I made a blanket for) and I have a lot of pink I want to sew with.

  5. Love the little blankets - they are the perfect new baby gift, aren't they? And thanks for the mention of my blog, that's really sweet of you!!
