My latest projects

January 5th Was Ella's baptism and Maxwell's blessing.  Earlier in the year I had volunteered to make Ella a dress and do the blessing outfit.  It came fast right after Christmas.  But all turned out well.

Ella is the first of three baptisms this year,  I can't believe they are all getting so grownup. 
 She wanted the dress pink and I found this pretty fabric several months ago and knew it would be perfect.  She looked so pretty.

My smocking teacher suggested this fun pattern, I love the nautical look.  I found the waffle type fabric as a scrap on a sale table and so glad I picked it up long ago.  It made the outfit turn out like I wanted it to.

Maxwell is such a fun baby, he loves his Mom.  By mid week after the blessing he was in the hospital with RSV, but now is all better.  So fun to have a baby around.


  1. You are the smocking queen. I love love all the details and the piping on everything. Adorable.

  2. How fun that you have the talent to make and share such adorable outfits and pillows for your grandkids...and what adorable grandkids they are!

  3. SO cute. These will be treasured keepsakes. Love and miss you all.
