A Finish for the New Year

But, not a cross stitch finish- I completed a dress and bloomers for my niece's first birthday. I used some fabric I already had (think I had planned to make a dress for me out of it at some point). I love the way it turned out and I can't wait for the summer when she can wear it!

This is the front of the dress and the bloomers. And below is the back of the dress with a tie in the back.
This week I FINALLY got the birth announcement in the mail. It had been framed and sitting on the table in bubble wrap for too long!

I have been sick this week and it made it hard to get much done around the house, I did get some work on the quilt done last night, but the hand stitching doesn't give me quite as much satisfaction as seeing progress on a cross stitch project or sewing project. I will keep working on the quilt today, but I think I may do some scrap booking as well! I have the whole day free.. hubby is hunting!

Well, I better go get some oatmeal and eggs for breakfast! Happy stitching and thanks for visiting my blog.

The bloomers are way too cute, hope she loves them. And I really really like the birth announcement that is one I haven't seen before.

WELCOME to the Totally Useless SAL, looking forward to lots of cute orts.

I am playing catch-up on my google reader and saw your birth announcement finish. It is just adorable. Looks like a lot of work, but definitely worth it. Take care.
