Lunch at Homas House Plantation


This is one of the Kitchen Gardens at Homas House Plantation.

My Granddaughter and I went for lunch a few days ago.

We had a nice table by the window.


Then we spent a bit of time wandering through the gardens.



We had a lovely day!

Cute Daygown Kit with Vintage Buttons!



I love white Daygowns on a Baby.

There is something so pure and sweet about a Baby in White. 



But I especially like just a touch of color.
  On this Daygown I have used pink Antique  MOP buttons and a pink bias binding at the neck as well as pink embroidery.

With all these touches of pink, you can be sure it is for a special Baby Girl!

This little Cutie Pie!

Baby Londyn.


There is a Kit for this Daygown made from these materials in my Web Shop.
Including Satin Batiste Fabric, elastic for sleeves, pink Bias Neck Binding (already cut), pink Embroidery Floss, Embroidery Design for Cutie Pie and a card of pink Antique Buttons.

The Initials are not included in the kit.  Info here about them!
The pattern I used is Priscilla's Layette and it is Out of Print - Sorry!

I recommend  my pattern Baby's First Daygown.

Embroidered Initials on a Daygown

I embroidered my Grandbaby's initials at the lower edge of her new Daygown.
I used two shades of pink and one strand of floss.  




The flower motif and the letter L is on page 27 (part of a different letter combination). The letter S is on page 32, again the S is part of a different initial combination.  

I rather like it!

Kathy's Quilt

While I was in Cleveland, my sister and I stitched on her lap quilt.
(she stitches, I iron)

It's made using cute fabric triangles and white fabric.

I really like it.

Her dog, Penny, was pretty curious about it.


She has since put a border on it. 

Has made the quilt sandwich (batting between front and backing)  and is Hand Quilting it.


To learn more of her method of "sandwiching" the quilt, see HERE.



Her stitches are so pretty.
