Happy Friday Everyone!
I finished up a few sewing projects this week – can you believe it? I was worried that this was turning into a baby blog, so I am happy to have some quilting done to show.
Actually, I can’t take all the credit, as my Mom did most of the sewing and I just tried to get them quilted and bound. It took me a couple of days, as I haven’t figured out yet how to feed the baby and machine quilt at the same time!
The fabrics are from my Seaside Cottage line, which will be in stores shortly. I couldn’t decide which fabric combination to use, so I decided to make a couple of toppers.
My favorite is probably the red and aqua
There is also a pink and green option:
and a grey and aqua option.
The pattern is my Diamond Diva pattern. It’s a pattern that I have made several times, as they are quick and easy to make (much easier than they look), they require just a few fat quarters (which I always have lying around), and they are small enough that they are easy to decorate with (throw one on an end table, on a nightstand, over the back of a chair, etc).
I made this one a while ago using my Artful Home fabric. It moves around my living room as needed. I’ve made a few more too, but can’t seem to locate the pictures just right now.
Before I go, I have just a quick question – Do I get to count this as my first smile, or is 16 days old too early for a smile? Everyone attributes those early smiles to things like gas, but he did seem pretty happy at the time.
So, does anyone remember when their babies first smiled? (and btw – it won’t hurt my feelings if you tell me it is just way to early to be a real smile. Either way, I had a good excuse to share this cute picture!)
