DIY Crib Liner For Solid End Cribs

So, I never registered for crib bumpers for Reese. A lot of people are against them because they say a child can suffocate because of them or a whole other plethora of reasons. If I had a set, I probably would have used them when Reese was around 3-4 months old. Reese was very mobile, and could easily move her head so suffocation was something I wasn’t worried about,but a nice simple set runs about $40. I didn’t want to pay that kind of money for something used so shortly. I know I could find them used for cheaper,but it...

Sewing Gifts

Before our little one arrives, I wanted to get a few sewing items out of the way so I didn’t have to worry about them later. Also, both of these family members had birthdays before she was due, and I didn’t want them waiting half the year for me to finally get cracking and sew them their stuff.

I asked for more guidelines and hit two large hitches. I needed to provide my own china and 2 teapots among lots of other things. I don’t own china or...

My Woven Basket

Baskets are always so beautiful and there are so many different kinds. I have been on the look out for a basket to hold our throw blankets in the living room for a while now. My Mother-in-law does amazing basket weaving by hand so I considered asking for a basket for Christmas,but I didn’t want to wait that long.

Monogrammed Baby Chevron Quilt

Two weekends ago,  I was able to attend one of my sister’s Baby Showers in Nashville. I wanted a cute gift for my niece other than just the typical burp cloth, headband bows,etc. So I decided to make a quilt. I have been working on this project for a while now without her knowing about it so I couldn’t blog about my progress until now. So below is what I did.
