Her dress was made 18 years ago when her first cousin was born and baptised. I made the dress from several patterns, did the smocking with beading, ordered the laces. ribbons and fabric from Texas. And made the hat from scratch and did the cross-stitch too.
Check out that pink tie .... honoring his baby girl
It's not everyday that your paternal grandfather, an Ordained Catholic Deacon, performs your baptism.

My entry for the Amy's Blogger Quilt Festival.
I made this quilt to celebrate GD#3 arrival. She is a miracle baby for DD#2 and SIL.
The quilt is based loosely on the Yellow Brick Road pattern. I say loosely because I found YBR difficult so I sort of did my own thing .... I think it turned out great.
DD#2 is a not a quilter or sewist but she definitely has the color/pattern eye. So off we went to 4 quilt shops in her area and Joann's too. She wanted lots of pattern with a touch of black and hot pink. Oh we found so many wonderful fabrics.
I used chenille from Joann's .... oh my gosh that stuff is so soft and cuddly ... it was perfect.
As you can see I used a heart, teacup and teapot theme for the quilting. That was DD#2 theme for her baby shower and the room is decorated with touches of teacups and teapots.
