I'm So Excited.....

OK, so maybe I am a little pathetic for being sooo excited over a sewing project, but....I've been dying for months to do a crib set, but because of the upfront fabric cost, I haven't done one to list and because I haven't made one, I have been unsuccessful in my bids to get a custom order since I don't have any photos. So, I had a customer inquire about a black and white blanket I have listed in my shop (the Elegance Minky Blanket);  she was wondering if it was crib sized and if I had any other pieces as she was trying to assemble a black and white-themed nursery.  I offered to make that blanket crib sized along with the matching pieces (crib skirt and bumpers and personalized pillow).  After two very busy, interrupted days of cutting and laying out for all the pieces, I was able to finish the pillow today and I am absolutely THRILLED!  I can't wait to get it all together and put it in my crib to see how it looks!  I just thought I would share a preview with you all!

And...a fellow EtsyMom teammate featured my blog on her blog today!  You can check out her Etsy shop here (Gifts from the Heart by CraftGirlAlli);  she sells hand painted gifts for all.  You can visit her blog here

The pillow and color scheme are gorgeous. The Mom will be very happy that she asked about that minky blanket.
