What joy the gospel gives me. I can approach the throne of God with confidence, not because I've done a good job at my spiritual duties, but because I'm clothed in the righteousness of Jesus Christ. ~ C.J. Mahaney


Actually, these are onesies, not tee shirts, but you get my drift. I've been having ball stitching these up, embellished with embroidery, applique, and ruffles.  Well, the girls' have ruffles.  I restrained myself from putting ruffles on the dolphin, boy onesie.  Two of these are custom orders, but the other two are for sale.  And at the rate my brain is moving, there should be quite a few more coming soon. 

These two are for sale.

A little dragonfly is handsewn with blanket stitches; the neckline, shoulders, and sleeves are outline stitched in pink.

There are ruffles on the bum. 

Size 3-6 mo.  $15

This one has a faux button placket.  The fabric is an upcycled 70's vintage pillowcase.  Crisp, cool and breezy for summer.  (I keep my eyes peeled for these when I'm thrifting.  I'm seeing a sundress out of the rest of the fabric.)

The ruffled bum.  Very sweet.  Size 12 mo.  $15

Feel free to let me know if you want either of these or would like to order something similar.  Any applique has to be simple, as it is quite difficult to maneuver the tiny garments under the machine.

I've been busy during spring break.  I have a custom quilt order for a little girl and her baby doll.  That one has been challenging and fun at the same time.  Another custom quilt order came in the other day which I'll be starting soon.  Another challenge, which keeps things from getting boring.

Be watching for lots more items in the store.  I keep saying that, but I mean it...seriously.  Two quilts that are 99% finished.  A diaper bag/bib/taggy cube combo.  A sweet sundress completed, just waiting to be photographed. 

Oh!  You must see the four darling sweaters my dear friend Ellen knitted and mailed down from New York.  Yes, she is that kind of friend.  She wrote and asked me if she could make a few things to donate to the cause.   What do you think I told her?  She does beautiful work.  Each of my children (and my grandbaby) has worn Ellen-knitted sweaters.

Right now I'm rethinking how I want to post the items for sale.  I really don't care at all for the Facebook page option.  It's a pain and it doesn't showcase the items at all.  Etsy gets so many bad reviews by small time sellers that I think it's out of the question.  Any suggestions are welcome.

Here is a sneak peek of the little peach sweater Ellen sent down.  Once I get all the size and yarn details and find a way to photograph them that will do them justice, they'll all be up in the store.  I mean, three of them will.  The fourth one is already sold.

To me.

For my next grandbaby.

Ah, the perks.
