I was brainstorming with my daughter in law, Amanda, to figure out what to make for her new daughter, Olivia, for Christmas.

My middle child, Lindsey, now has a son, John Theodore Ehricht. He is my newest grandchild. Initially we did not know the sex of the baby, so I could not start on a christening gown until she could find out the sex at her ultrasound appointment. When she did finally find out, I was able...

    Love your sewing tip on sewing with organdy. I’m trying the drawer liner tip with batiste. Also
    love the embroidery you used in that tip – the lovely bow design. Is that a Martha Pullen embroidery design? I’d love to try that embroidery design out.

      Thank you. Yes, that is a Martha Pullen design, it is from the 2010 Internet Embroidery Club Christening Gown 2. I don’t know if you can still get that pattern or not.

    Hi there would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m going to start my own blog soon but I’m having
    a hard time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and
    Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout
    seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.

    P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
