Hi there! Yes, that is me ~ all puffy and pregnant. We've made it to the last trimester and it'll be go-time before you know it, so it was time for a pic, I think. Have I mentioned I think we're going to name her Gabriella? Gabriella or Isabella or Sophia or Chloe or Maria ~ aah, I'm still undecided but my family has chosen Gabriella. What do you think?
This week was a time for simple and sweet crafts as I had very little energy for anything else. With Spring in the air and the farmer's market on my mind, I made a few more of the strawberry pincushions with Heather Bailey's pattern...
They're just so dang cute, I guess I couldn't stop.
But one cannot live on strawberries alone...
Did you know that Easter is, at last, just around the corner? I'm way ahead of myself this year ~ the little one's Easter baskets are ready to go and last night I whipped up this little bag for Anne. She's too old for toys, but not for gift cards. And if you know me, you know I can't normally "whip" anything up, but this simple bag can be made in minutes. I used my bunny template (get it here), a scrap of cotton print, linen, and a bit of crochet lace. Voila! Perfect for holding a gift card plus a few other little sundries.
Simple and sweet, right?
Lastly, I wanted to let you know I've made up an embroidery pattern of my Sleepy Time animal pals and it's in the shop.
The pattern includes a drawing of the animal pals and basic instructions on how to assemble your own doll quilt. So if you liked the Sleepy Time doll quilts you can easily make your own!
Have a great weekend and happy stitching!
