Well....I haven't done much since my last post. I did finish the cute applique t-shirt to match my daughter's skirt the other day, but she wore it before I could photo it and I now have to get the chocolate icing off of the WHITE shirt before I can show you all how cute it turned out.
I did a blanket and matching onesie for a friend to give as a baby gift. I FINALLY got to order some of Alexander Henry's 2D Zoo to do it and I sooo love it. I want to do my son's room in it, but my husband wasn't sold. So I think I am going to do Alexander Henry's Surfin' fabric with the surf boards, that will allow me to keep the yellow walls and the trees my husband painted when we prepared the nursery for my daughter. I went gender neutral with her because of the insane pregnancy hormone-induce phobia that she infact was NOT a girl and if I did her room for a girl she would definitely be a boy. So we ended up with a gender neutral farm animal theme that I am just shaking my head at....oh those wonderful hormones! (they also made us buy a light colored wood crib because the one we wanted, which was a Mission style red oak was backordered six weeks and although I wasn't due for about 3 or 4 months at the time, there was complete paranoia that the baby would get here and we would have no crib, so let's order this one that we really don't love so that the beautiful bundle of joy will have a crib to sleep in....5 months after we brought her home). Loooong tangent!
Anyway, I haven't been up to much but I have quite a bit in the works. I have a custom request for outdoor cushion covers that I'm hoping won't ruin my machine as the fabric is very heavy-duty. I am also making new deck swing cushions for my mom as her Birthday/Mother's Day present. She picked some really pretty fabric that I can't wait to show you all. I want to make my daughter a cute sundress for her preschool graduation in a couple weeks and I am making an early birthday present for my friend's daughter for the fourth of July. The baby's room is in the future...have to finish some other things first. And, I need to start increasing my inventory for the French Market next month. I am REALLY excited!
