The Boys are my nephew Jake and Lyndsay's babies born in December. Now this photo was not labeled, but I believe that's Mason in the white sleeper and Jaxson in the green.
Who knew pillow cases were such fun to make? This is a Dr. Who design flannel for Isabella.
Marcus needed a big boy quilt for his big boy bed. I was hesitant about this very soft fleecy Star Wars fabric because it had a bit of a pile, but it wasn't too bad to work with. The design is all one piece, not individual blocks sewn together (I'm not that crazy). The back is a flannel, so I did not sandwich any batting in between figuring it would be warm enough as it was. I machine quilted following the block design, and it came together like a dream (walking foot!).
I also finished up a flannel quilt for Josh that I did piece. This is to replace an old flannel quilt that I made him years and years ago that is ready for the rag bag. I gave him permission to give it the old heave-ho, but he says he's keeping both. Linus.
The Vermonters are always in sleepers, when not running around in underpants. I made these a year or so ago.
It's feast or famine when heating with a woodstove.
The Utah girls stayed with us for about three weeks this past summer and since they had plans to attend the Salt Lake City Comic Con in September with Dad (where attendees apparently dress up as favorite comic book/cartoon characters?), Evie decided she wanted to make her own costume for Mabel from Gravity Falls. This is Mabel: purple skirt, pink turtleneck sweater with star and rainbow design, and braces on her teeth.
We got some pink fleece, purple cotton, felt for the applique, and pieced together a couple of patterns. Aside from a little help with the pinning, zipper and applique, Evie stitched every seam and did a great job.
I told her she was on her own with finding fake braces for her teeth as I did not think Dad and Mom would spring for orthodontia just for Comic Con.
It's Inauguration Day. I have the TV on, sound off; I hate to be shallow, but I'm here for the fashions. I'd give my right arm to study Melania's powder blue church outfit. I bet it's cashmere and silk and hand-tailored, of course. It's gorgeous. --cds
